Toluca vs Sporting Kansas City Lineups & Team News

Toluca

With eight goals in two Leagues Cup matches you can make the argument that Toluca are the most interesting team to watch in this edition of the tournament so far. Will coach Ambriz’s boys score four against Sporting KC as well? For the sake of our second Toluca vs Sporting Kansas City prediction, we hope it doesn’t come to that.

Predicted lineup – Volpi (GK), Garcia, Pinuelas, Huerta, Dominguez, Venegas, Ruiz, Meneses, Araujo, P. R & Morales

Sporting Kansas City

Sporting Kansas City bled to reach the round-of-32 stage of the Leagues Cup. First, coach Vermes’ boys had to endure a penalty roulette against Cincinnati, where they eventually dropped three points. Second, the 0-1 win over Guadalajara was definitely a difficult one to get, as coach Veljko Paunovic’s boys showed valiant defiance.

Predicted lineup – Pulskamp (GK), Leibold, Fontas, Rosero, Davis, Gutierrez, Walter, Kinda, Russell, Thommy & Shelton

Player to Watch: Alan Pulido

Will Alan Pulido upset his fellow countrymen on Saturday? We believe he has the best chance to do so among Peter Vermes’ troops. Alan Pulido is Sporting Kansas City’s leading finisher this season, with 10 goals to his name in the 2023 Major League Soccer campaign. He’s on penalty duty for the team and he’s a firm starter in MLS. We believe there’s a chance he might be on the bench for the start of the game, but he’ll surely have a cracking game in the second half.
