Jay Heaps has picked an ultra-attacking lineup, while Peter Vermes will defend on the road.
Sporting Kansas City are without Claudio Bieler on Saturday night and have turned to Teal Bunbury up top. Soony Saad and Dom Dwyer are Peter Vermes' attacking options off the bench. Vermes has gone very defensive in midfield, starting both Lawrence Olum and Uri Rosell. Benny Feilhaber should make a substitute appearance at some point, but who he comes in for and when will depend on how the game goes for Sporting.
New England Revolution have picked a very attacking lineup in anticipation of not getting too many scoring chances away from home. There's no true defensive midfielder in their side.
New England Revolution: Matt Reis, Darrius Barnes, Jose Goncalves, A.J. Soares, Andrew Farrell, Andy Dorman, Lee Nguyen, Kelyn Rowe, Diego Fagundez, Juan Agudelo, Dimitry Imbongo
Sporting Kansas City: Jimmy Nielsen, Chance Myers, Aurlien Collin, Matt Besler, Seth Sinovic, Uri Rosell, Lawrence Olum, Graham Zusi, Jacob Peterson, Teal Bunbury, C.J. Sapong
Kickoff is at 8 p.m. ET. You can catch the game on NBC Sports Network or MLS Live.
