Sporting Kansas City vs Seattle Sounders Predictions and Match Preview

Sporting Kansas City vs Seattle Sounders FC
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 26th May 2019
Kick-off at 23.00 UK
Venue: Children’s Mercy Park (Kansas City).

Seattle has been one of the best teams in the competition this season. They occupy the second spot in the West and has lost just a single game so far. Their away record might be somewhat lacking, but considering the form and current position of their opponents, the Sounders fancy this tie to let them give three points.

Sporting is second to last in the table, and along with Dallas, is one of only two teams to avoid a win in the last five match-days. They have won just two fixtures all season, and with their home advantage, and their recent performances in h2h ties at home, the team has hope.

Sporting Kansas City vs Seattle Sounders FC Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The last two games had goals from both teams.
  • The last six meetings returned five home wins and a draw.
  • Kansas recorded the last three wins at this venue.
  • The last time these two met at this venue, the match ended in a 2-2 draw.

Sporting Kansas City vs Seattle Sounders FC Prediction

Seattle is easily the best team in the conference, just behind Los Angeles. They have lost just a single game so far and is on a six-game unbeaten run. They also avoided a loss in 13 of their last 14 fixtures. On the other hand, Kansas is winless in their last nine ties, and in their last five at home. They are also the worst team in the conference if not for the presence of the Rapids.

As such, expect Seattle to avoid a loss, on the basis of recent form.

But do take into account the away form of Seattle, where they have suffered a bit. Also, in h2h ties, especially the recent ones, Sporting has had the upper hand. In addition, the team conceded two or more goals in seven of their last ten away ties, while Sporting netted goals in 21 of their last 22 home ties.

It’s logical to expect goals at either end of the pitch.
