Gamethread: Sporting Kansas City Vs. Chivas USA, 5/5/13

USA TODAY Sports

It is time for the game! Chivas USA is on the road, facing Sporting Kansas City at Sporting Park for an afternoon match (2 pm PT, UniMas). Both teams are looking for a win, after some less-than-perfect recent results, as Sporting are coming off two straight losses, while Chivas got a draw at home last week. Kansas City is favored in this game, but can the Goats continue to win over neutrals and spring an upset?

If you missed them, take a look at the Three Questions exchange from Friday, and the match preview from yesterday.

I'll be doing my customary basic play-by-play and commentary in the comment section below. Feel free to get involved in the conversation...what do you think about the game? The performances? The lineup?
