Sporting Kansas City starting lineup ready and set


Sporting Kansas City


After a seven-game losing streak, Sporting Kansas got three points on Sunday against Seattle Sounders, but they lost a crucial element for the duel against Galaxy, Krisztian Nemeth since he's suspended and will not be able to play this Wednesday night.

Sporting Kansas is looking to get its second win at home when hosting at Children's Park the LA Galaxy squad, team that will have back on the lineup its Swedish striker, Zlatan Ibrahimovic who was serving a two-game ban.

Since the arrival of Zlatan, Galaxy has faced Sporting Kansas City twice, and haven't been able to beat them. The LA side lost their first match 0-2 in Los Angeles while leveling up 1-1 at the game in Kansas. Curious enough, Galaxy's goal was scored by the Swede.
