SKC Recap:

It's been perfect in many ways as the summer fades away Sporting KC has been been undefeated the past three matches. With their first full week off from competition in forever, Sporting is in better shape than before with only problems on their left wing. Jacob Peterson is still out with a shoulder injury and Bobby Convey's hamstring keeps giving him trouble. Behind them at left back, Seth Sinovic is also still recovering from an ankle sprain

Toronto recap:

Toronto again finds itself with multiple competitions to worry about as the Canadian Champions started CONCACAF Champions League group stage with a 5-1 victory against CD Aguila. The had a nice three game win streak in mid-July, but they have earned only one point in their last three matches.
