KANSAS CITY, Kan. — The MLS All-Star Game has come and gone, and now Sporting Kansas City hosts one of its biggest home matches of the regular season. New York Red Bulls trail first-place Sporting KC by one point heading into their Eastern Conference showdown Saturday at 5:30 at Sporting Park.

Sporting KC will be without All-Star Graham Zusi. He left the All-Star game with a strained quad and is day-to-day. Goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen was recently hospitalized with meningitis, but he is expected to play.

The Red Bulls are unbeaten in their last three MLS matches but have not earned a victory against Sporting Kansas City in its last five meetings.
