It's been an impressive start to the 2017 Campaign for FC Dallas - they've already secured a place in the CONCACAF Champions League last four and last Saturday's season opening 2-1 win over Galaxy exhibited the reigning Supporters Shield and the Lamar hunt United States' Open Cup champions will again be a force to reckon domestically.

Sporting won't be any pushovers in their home game, even if they are still searching for their first goal of the 2017 campaign, Sporting's head coach Peter Vermes likes to see clean-sheets, - and with his side complete involvements from every player on the pitch dogged out a hard fought 0-0 barren draw against DC United last weekend.

A win at the Children's Mercy Park ground would retain Fc Dallas at the forefront of the interaction about which club is the Major league's best. While knocking out the two time cup holders would place Sporting Kansas City squarely into that interaction.

Left-wing striker Gerso demonstrated speed to burn-down the left flank with his quick and neat touches on service.

Including an early pull-outs that Sporting's forward Dwyer placed over the crossbar.
