MLS Review: Sporting KC, Portland keep pressure on

25 September 2017 04:39

Sporting Kansas City and Portland Timbers kept the pressure on in the Western Conference in MLS, while Atlanta United claimed another win.

Goals from Daniel Salloi and Diego Rubio helped Sporting to a 2-1 victory at home to LA Galaxy on Sunday.

Salloi poked in the opener in the 18th minute before Rubio tapped in a Seth Sinovic pass in the first half for Peter Vermes’ men.

Romain Alessandrini pulled a goal back for Galaxy but they were unable to find another at Children’s Mercy Park.

Sporting are third in the Western Conference, a point adrift of leaders Vancouver Whitecaps.

Sitting second are Portland, who recorded a 3-0 win over a nine-man Orlando City.

Diego Valeri opened the scoring from the penalty spot to extend his MLS-record scoring streak to nine matches.

Darren Mattocks doubled the lead before Jonathan Spector was sent off for Orlando early in the second half.

Valeri struck again prior to the hour-mark and substitute Victor also saw red for Orlando.

Meanwhile, Atlanta extended their unbeaten run to six matches with a 2-0 win at home to Montreal Impact.
