This could potentially be viewed as a trap game for Sporting KC as Toronto FC has been struggling all season long and has only won five games all season long and here we are two thirds of the way through the season now kind of heading into the home stretch of the season where we will see teams starting to make their playoff pushes. Right now Sporting is sitting on top of their division alone, but they are going to have some very tough matches ahead of themselves.
Luckily for Sporting KC they have finally gotten a full week break after playing 17 games in the last nine weeks. So I'm sure they were ready for a much needed break and hopefully they used this time to get some rest, but this team acts like they are not done even though they have won the US Open Cup. After that win just a few days after winning the cup they were able to come out and beat one of the teams in the MLS that has been doing really well lately in DC United. That told me that they want more than just the Open Cup, they want everything they can get which can still include the Supporters Shield and the MLS Cup. They still have a long way to go for that, but I believe that last weekend was the start of that and look at them to continue their dominate play of any and everybody they can the rest of the season and into the post season today against Toronto FC which realistic should not be a challenge for Sporting but lets just hope that Sporting KC doesn't take the game that way and they come out looking to just tear apart a team if given the chance.
I don't want to say that Sporting will completely dominate Toronto but really they should and we could easily see a 3 or 4-0 scoreline in this match up giving Nielsen yet another shutout and showing that this team is out for more than just one trophy. They want the double or possibly even the triple this year. Sporting has tasted victory and now they are looking to prove that they are one of the best teams in the MLS to go along with the likes of a LA Galaxy or Seattle Sounders.
