Match preview

After a frankly embarrassing U.S. Open Cup defeat on Tuesday night, can Columbus Crew bounce back?

On Tuesday night, the Crew were in Michigan to take on USL Championship side Detroit City FC, obviously as firm favourites to advance.

Despite taking a seventh minute lead through Gyasi Zardes, they were beaten 2-1, thereby losing to lower-league opposition for the first time in over a decade.

Back in MLS, things aren't going well for Caleb Porter's men either.

Last weekend, Columbus were beaten 2-0 by Orlando City at Lower.com Field.

This means the Crew have lost three on the bounce, failing to score in all three, last netting with Darlington Nagbe's stoppage time equaliser against RBNY.

So, the Crew are currently just below the Eastern Conference play-off line, desperately trying to avoid a fifth consecutive defeat.

Sporting Kansas City meanwhile have finished as the best in the west in both 2018 and 2020, but are also enduring a sticky period.

Last weekend, SKC took the lead at Banc of Califronia Stadium, Johnny Russell provoking an own goal, before they were eventually beaten 3-1 by LAFC.

So, Peter Vermes' side have lost three in a row and six of eight MLS matches so far this season.

Thankfully for the Wizards, they enter the U.S. Open Cup in the next round, so avoided the same potential upset that bestowed their visitors.

Which struggling powerhouse will win at Children's Mercy Park?
