KANSAS CITY , Kan. (AP) — Dairon Asprilla converted a penalty kick in the 85th minute to give Portland a contentious 2-2 draw with Sporting Kansas City on Sunday night, keeping the Timbers in line for a playoff spot.Asprilla was given the opportunity for his first goal after Ilie Sanchez fouled Jeremy Ebobisse in the penalty area. Sanchez drew a red card for his efforts, the third issued in the game, including a record-breaking red for KC teammate Roger Espinoza.The point moved Portland (13-13-7) one point up on Dallas and two on San Jose, which is a point out of playoff position, with one game to play. San Jose plays at Portland next Sunday.Article continues below ...Portland took the lead in the 29th minute when Sebastian Blanco pounced on a loose ball and put it over two defenders off the cross bar for his fifth goal. But it only took a minute for Kansas City to get the equalizer. Johnny Russell put a cross into the box and Kristian Nemeth got a head on it to send it into the bottom corner for his eighth goal.The game turned when Portland’s Brian Fernandez, dribbling down the left side , was taken down by Felipe Gutierrez in the 35th minute. Words and shoves were exchanged and both earned yellow cards. Espinoza raced in and pushed a Portland player in the throat. Fernandez was then shown another card for an ejection and after a review, Espinoza was shown the red card.For Espinosa it was his MLS record 11th red of his career, breaking a tie with Jamison Olaves. He also joined 12 other players for most reds in a season with three. Meanwhile, Fernandez will miss Portland’s crucial finale.In the 46th minute, KC’s Gianluca Busio sent a shot off the post but the deflection came out to Daniel Salloi who buried the rebound for his first goal of the season. Substitute Reece James completed an improbable comeback for Chelsea against Ajax in the Champions League on Tuesday as the hosts came from three goals down to draw 4-4 after the Dutch team was reduced to nine men.In a roller-coaster match at Stamford Bridge, Frank Lampard’s side scored two own goals and two penalties while Ajax had two players sent off.Ajax, a semifinalist last season , was 4-1 up at Stamford Bridge after 55 minutes and appeared headed for an easy victory. But Chelsea pulled a goal back in the 63rd before Daley Blind and Joel Veltman were both sent off in a sequence that completely changed the game.Chelsea, which won 1-0 in Amsterdam last month, was also awarded a penalty for handball by Veltman which led to his second booking and Jorginho made it 4-3 with his second spot kick of the game.James equalized with a low show from a rebound in the 74th to complete the comeback, and Chelsea even thought it had scored a late winner through Cesar Azpilicueta.However, the goal was ruled out for a handball on Tammy Abraham after a video review.“It was great to pull it back and a shame that we didn’t win,” said the 19-year-old James. “It’s always a great feeling scoring here at Stamford Bridge and for such a great club.”James came into the game with Chelsea trailing 3-1 and was not anticipating the Blues making such a dramatic comeback“I didn’t (expect it),” he said. “I was happy to come on and make an impact , scoring a goal is a bonus. We had a few more chances where we could have scored but it was a great end to the game.”Abraham’s own-goal had given Ajax the lead before Jorginho equalized with his first penalty. Quincy Promes put Ajax in front with a header, while another own-goal by Kepa Arrizabalaga and Donny van de Beek’s strike gave Ajax a three-goal lead.Ajax’s third goal came with a slice of luck as Hakim Ziyech’s swirling free kick from the right flew over Kepa and hit the inside of the post, before smacking the goalkeeper in the face and bouncing into the net.But the key sequence came when Blind fouled Abraham. The referee initially played the advantage as Callum Hudson-Odoi pushed forward and fired a shot that struck Veltman’s hand resulting in both Ajax players earning a second yellow card and Chelsea getting the penalty.The result left both teams and Valencia all tied on seven points in a very tight Group H. Valencia beat Lille 4-1 in the group’s other match.
