Sporting KC is in an interesting situation for themselves with this friendly. Their busy schedule has caught up with them it'd appear, along with the warm weather, slowing down their high pressure game. They're struggling to pick up points right now, at an inopportune time with the US Open Cup final only a week away. The lack of goal scoring and 4 games without a win at home. With a game this weekend ahead of the Open Cup final Peter Vermes has some decisions to make selection wise. In the past he's liked to have his starters play 2 games in a week, usually with the second being a scrimmage during the week in practice. But with so many meaningful games going on and the biggest game of his head coaching career in a week he could look to give starters some rest. I think we'll possibly see a few a few starters get some time, and probably a bigger bench than we saw against Montpellier last week.
Ellis - Markovic - Besler - Sinovic
Cesar - Nagamura

PREDICTION - Please no more injuries, with Aurelien Collin, Chance Myers, CJ Sapong, and Jacob Peterson all battling injuries, just no one get hurt. Score tomorrow means nothing.
