Sport­ing KC right at home with Revs

Boston Herald - - SCOREBOARD -

Diego Ru­bio scored twice to help Sport­ing Kansas City beat the Rev­o­lu­tion, 3-1, last night in Kansas City, Kan.

Sport­ing KC (11-6-11) stretched its clu­brecord home un­beaten streak to 23 games.

The Revs (10-14-5) have lost two straight, in­clud­ing 7-0 against At­lanta on Wed­nes­day night.

Teal Bun­bury scored in the fourth minute for the Rev­o­lu­tion, but they lost the early mo­men­tum when Krisz­tian Nemeth threw a high el­bow at Gra­ham Zusi in the 11th minute. Af­ter video re­play, Nemeth was ejected and Revs fin­ished with 10 play­ers.

Gerso Fer­nan­des scored in the 16th minute for Sport­ing KC. Ru­bio slid a shot be­hind keeper Brad Knighton just be­fore half to make it 2-1. Benny Feil­haber bounced a shot off the left post and Ru­bio tapped in the re­bound in the 57th minute.

City stars to im­press

Although it’s taken a year longer than many ex­pected, Man­ches­ter City is fi­nally be­gin­ning to re­sem­ble a Pep Guardi­ola-coached team.

City re­mained in ram­pant form as it ended Wat­ford’s un­beaten start to the EPL with a re­sound­ing 6-0 vic­tory at Vicarage Road.

Guardi­ola’s side has scored 15 goals in three matches since the in­ter­na­tional break, fol­low­ing 5-0 and 4-0 wins over Liver­pool and Fey­er­nood re­spec­tively.

City stut­tered to a third­place fin­ish in Guardi­ola’s de­but sea­son.

Ser­gio Aguero scored a preda­tory hat trick and laid on an as­sist for Gabriel Je­sus, while Ni­co­las Ota­mendi headed in, and Ra­heem Ster­ling added a late penalty.

The win took City to the top of the ta­ble, but Man­ches­ter United can join it to­day with a win.
