Sporting Kansas City returns home this weekend to take on Nashville SC at Children’s Mercy Park for just the second time in club history. Sporting defeated Nashville 2-1 back on Oct. 11, 2020 in the only previous meeting between the two sides – and Sporting will head into tonight’s clash with their lightest player availability report since the start of the season. There will be no happy homecoming for former Sporting KC forward Teal Bunbury, who remains out with a knee injury for Nashville this weekend.
