Ezequiel Barco opened the scoring and helped set up Emerson Hyndman for what proved to be the second-half winner in a 2-1 victory over FC Cincinnati at the Benz. Yuya Kubo pulled the visitors to within a goal nine minutes later, but the Five Stripes took all three points for a second consecutive week.
Sporting (2-0-0) made it two wins in a row to start 2020, defeating the Houston Dynamo 4-0 at Children's Mercy Park. Four different players scored for Sporting, with Alan Pulido and Gadi Kinda both scoring their second goals of the season, while Roger Espinoza and Khiry Shelton added their first of 2020.
