Sporting KC team news and form: Fresh air for Sporting

Last week’s 2-0 win over Wolff’s Austin was indeed a pleasant surprise by Sporting Kansas City. However, we consider this victory a fluke. We find it difficult to believe coach Peter Vermes’ boys will be able to get anything out of the match at DSG Park this week.

Predicted lineup: Melia (GK), Pierre, Rosero, Voloder, Leibold, Thommy, Radoja, Davis, Russell, Pulido & Tzionis

Player to watch: Rafael Navarro

We trust coach Chris Armas will make the right call and put Navarro among the starters on the 5th of July. Rafael is the leading finisher for his club this season, with 11 goals scored so far. It would be a shame if he gets benched.

Second player to watch: Djordje Mihailovic

Many of Navarro’s goals were due to Mihailovic’s brilliance! The attacking midfielder has five assists and nine goals since the start of the season, which is of key importance for our Colorado Rapids vs Sporting KC predictions.
