Matchday 4: A banana peel game for KC?

Or is it a game against banana peels? (Get it? Columbus wear all yellow? Got my dumb joke out of the way early.)

Call this a game of contrasts: Sporting Kansas City are near the top of the MLS table in goals scored and goals allowed while the Columbus Crew are riding a streak of 3-straight shutouts and have only scored one goal from the run-of-play.

Whatever you call it, it's the sort of game that KC must feel like they can win but will be a much more difficult task than it appears. It’s the classic tale of the easily-movable object meeting the somewhat-resistible force.

THE BASICS

Kickoff is 6:30 p.m. at Crew Stadium in Columbus, Ohio.
