Sporting Kansas City
7-3-1, 22 pts, 3rd in the Eastern Conference
San Jose Earthquakes
8-3-2, 27 pts, 2nd in the Western Conference
Still winless since the Vancouver match last month, Sporting KC looks to capitalize on San Jose missing it's best strikers. Roger Espinoza is back from suspension and Graham Zusi is back from USMNT camp so it should be a full strength squad. Don't be too worried about Sporting trailing in the standings as they have several games in hand in their back loaded schedule.
San Jose recap:
San Jose won mid-week 3-2 against the LA Galaxy in their first match without Chris Wondolowski. They are still just off the pace in the West, two points out with a game in hand (aka this game).
