Up next for Chivas USA: Saturday at Sporting Kansas City

Chivas USA is coming off a morale-boosting 2-0 win over San Jose, but Kansas City hasn't lost in its new stadium.

July 09, 2011

When: 4:30 PDT.

Where: Livestrong Sporting Park, Kansas City, Kan.

On the air: TV: Galavision; radio: 690.

Records: Chivas USA 5-7-6; Sporting Kansas City 5-6-6.

Record vs. Kansas City: 0-1-0

Update: Morale in the Chivas USA locker room leaped after its 2-0 victory over the San Jose Earthquakes on Wednesday. It was Chivas' first win in more than a month, and much was due to a solid defensive performance which eliminated nearly all of the Earthquakes' chances. Midfielder Nick LaBrocca sealed the win with his team-leading fifth goal of the season. Duplicating that performance will be difficult against a Sporting Kansas City club which has gone nine matches without a loss, outscoring its opponents 11-5 during that stretch. This will be Kansas City's fifth match in its new stadium, where it has not lost.
