An emphatic and historic 3-0 victory in the opening leg at chilly Children’s Mercy Park has put Sporting Kansas City in the driver’s seat with the Round of 16 tie heading to Toluca. SKC will have to deal with the altitude — Estadio Nemesio Diez sits at 8,700 feet — and an angry host, but Sporting advance to meet either Independiente or Toronto FC with a win, a draw or a loss by two or fewer goals.
