Last weekend didn't exactly go to plan for Sporting Kansas City in their playoff race. Along with a draw against the Houston Dynamo, Sporting got little to no help from other games on the weekend to help them close the gap on the teams in front of them, or extend their gap on the teams below them. Another weekend of games could see Sporting KC less than three points above the red line in the Western Conference if results don't go their way again.
What we want to happen - Chicago win
The weekend starts off with a match up that has little to no bearing on Sporting KC as both United and the Fire currently sit outside the playoff picture in the Eastern Conference. But DC sitting on 33 points while Chicago sits on 26 makes it a simple choice of going with the team with fewer points at this point of the season.
