San Jose Earthquakes vs Sporting Kansas City
Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 18th June 2017
Kick off at 02:00 UK/ 03:00 CET
Venue: Avaya Stadium.
Sporting KC seem determined to directly secure the Conference semis in this term of MLS after falling to the latter champions Seattle Sounders in the knockout round last year.
The Wizards will try to improve the away form and stay at the top of the Western Conference standings by seeing off SJ Earthquakes in the 17th round of the competition.
Dominic Kinnear had a lot to do during the international break since his team showed plenty of holes at the back in consecutive defeats to LA Galaxy and Portland Timbers.
‘Quakes allowed as many as six goals in last two fixtures which will be the music to the ears of Gerso Fernandes and Dom Dwyer who have combined 11 goals so far in the season for Sporting.
It’s pretty tough to explain how the Wizards struggle so much to bring the good shape from Children’s Mercy Park elsewhere since they lost four of the last five fixtures on the road.
Moreover, the team failed to score a single goal during the poor streak. On the bright side, Sporting showed decent performances in consecutive games on the home ground against Minnesota United and Montreal Impact.
SJ Earthquakes vs Sporting KC: Head to head
The visitors lead the tie by two victories thanks to a three-win streak in meetings with the ‘Quakes.
The last one happened in mid-March at Children’s Mercy Park when the Wizards took a 2-1 victory.
SJ Earthquakes vs Sporting KC: Prediction
This is a fantastic opportunity for Sporting KC to improve their disastrous record on the road.
The value is certainly with the Wizards who are 4/6 not to lose the match.
