San Jose Earthquakes vs Sporting Kansas City
Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday 16th September 2018
Kick off at 03:30 UK/ 04:30 CET
Venue: Avaya Stadium (San Jose).
San Jose Earthquakes are rock bottom of the Western conference coming into this game where from 81 points they have won 20 and are 4 points adrift of the next team which is Colorado Rapids.
San Jose have been poor this season but still caused a huge upset last time they were at home by beating league leaders Dallas FC 4-3 in a classic. The reality is though that the win was just their 4th of the entire season and they look set to finish bottom of their conference.
Sporting Kansas City are in 2nd place and they could take over FC Dallas with a win. But their priority will be keeping their automatic place which is currently under threat from Los Angeles FC.
Their form is good with 4 wins from their last 5 games although sandwiched in between that is a loss against Seattle Sounders which they went down by 3-1. Away from home they have the 2nd best record in the league and yet have lost 3 away games from their last five.
San Jose Earthquakes vs Sporting Kansas City: Head to Head
- Earthquakes have no wins in this fixture for the last 6 meetings either home or away, with Kansas City winning 5 of those.
- Kansas City have only won 1 game at this stadium from 11 visits.
San Jose Earthquakes vs Sporting Kansas City: Prediction
Sporting are the better team but they have had some troubles on the road recently and they don’t like coming to this ground even if most games end in a draw.
The Earthquakes have been poor this season but have picked up in recent weeks, they are playing just for the desire to do so and that can be dangerous for an opponent that really wants all three points. Our main bet will be to take San Jose on the double chance.
