The home side crashed out of the US Open Cup after suffering a narrow defeat at the hands of Atlanta United, in their previous game. You can definitely count on the squad to be keen on bouncing back with a win and the three points when they welcome Sporting Kansas City on Sunday at the MAPFRE Stadium.
At present, the visitors have drawn more games than any other team in the Western Conference and have the least number of wins to go with it as well. Their most recently concluded fixture against Toronto FC, saw them squander their lead twice, with the match finally ending in a 2-2 draw at the end of the ninety minutes.
The hosts were also held to a draw in their last league fixture against New York City FC in a similar fashion, with the latter managing to pull one back each time they went in front.
Both the teams are currently on the tenth position in their respective conferences, with the home side collecting 16 points in 15 matches while the visitors have amassed 17 points from 16 matches.

Columbus Crew vs Sporting Kansas City Prediction
Although both the side have been struggling alike to keep a consistent winning form in their respective conferences, the match on Sunday is likely to go in favor of the hosts by the slightest of margins.
The home side’s last victory at home in the league was against the Los Angeles Galaxy who are currently second in their conference. The visitors, on the other hand, are yet to win a single match on the road in this season.
Both the teams have managed to find the back of the net, if not the win, at least once in their last three matches. We can definitely expect the same from them when they square up against each for the ninety minutes.
