Coming off crushing defeats in Week 28, Sporting Kansas City and the Colorado Rapids look to bounce back when the Western Conference foes tangle at Children's Mercy Park Saturday night.

Sporting (10-13-7) are six points below the playoff line in the West with four games to play following a 7-2 defeat at the LA Galaxy Sunday night. SKC actually took the lead on a 24th-minute Felipe Gutierrez goal. But Zlatan Ibrahimovic leveled eight minutes later, pouncing on the rebound of his saved penalty kick. Ibrahimovic added two more goals, Sebastian Lletget netted a brace and Joe Corona and Uriel Antuna added a goal apiece to give the Galaxy a 7-1 lead before Gutierrez struck for his second four minutes from full time.

The Rapids (10-15-6), one point behind Sporting, rallied from an early two-goal deficit, but suffered a 3-2 defeat to Toronto FC at BMO Field Sunday. Keegan Rosenberry and Sam Nicholson canceled out early goals by Tsubasa Endoh and Alejandro Pozuelo. Kei Kamara had his penalty kick saved by Quentin Westberg late in the first half and Jonathan Osorio came off the bench to score the late winner for TFC.

The teams played to a 1-1 draw March 17 at Dick's Sporting Goods Park with Johnny Russell equalizing two minutes from full time after Diego Rubio opened the scoring in the 54th minute.
