  DID YOU KNOW?
  • These teams have already met once this season. Toronto scored an upset, taking a 2-1 result over Sporting at BMO Field.
  • Historically, however, KC, has had a big advantage, taking eight of the 16 games between the two sides, with four wins and four draws.
  • Despite having the second-worst points total in Major League Soccer, the Reds hare on an uptick, losing just one of their last five games, a 1-0 to best-in-MLS Real Salt Lake.
  • Sporting Kansas City is the most contentious team in MLS. The Sporks lead the league in fouls committed, with 284, and is third in fouls suffered, with 246.
  • Backing up that assertion is Sporting defender Aurelien Collin, tied for most yellow cards so far this season. He has seven.
