With three assists for the second time this season, the 20-year-old playmaker was the star of Saturday’s 5-2 victory over Atlanta United at America First Field. With 43 points, RSL is tied for first place in the Western Conference standings with LAFC and the LA Galaxy.

In addition to becoming the first player in MLS history who is 20 years of age or younger to earn three assists in different matches, Luna is also the first player in RSL history to record at least ten assists in a season since Talles Magno (10) did it for New York City FC in 2022.

After winning the title on Matchday 26 of 2023, Luna has now won MLS Player of the Matchday twice. He is still the youngest winner of the award, having won it the previous year.

Cristian Arango has won Player of the Matchday four times already this season for RSL, having done so on Matchdays seven, ten, and eighteen.

Matchday 26 takes place on Saturday night, when Real Salt Lake visits the Portland Timbers.
