Los Angeles FC vs Sporting KC
USA – MLS
Date: Sunday, 12 August 2018
Kick-Off at 03:30 UK / 04:30 CET
Venue: Banc of California Stadium, Los Angeles.
Los Angeles FC started the debut season in the top flight in a superb manner, but their form has hit a massive stumbling block over the last couple of weeks.
Even though team’s main stars returned to the action after the World Cup in Russia, the LA side went winless in four consecutive games across competitions.
Can they get back on the winning ways on Saturday evening when they are to play Conference rivals Sporting KC at Banc of California Stadium?
The two sides head into the game lock on points, sharing the third place in the Western Conference standings.
Nevertheless, the visitors come into the game in much higher spirits after ending a negative run of their own seven days ago.
They dispatched Houston Dynamo 0’-1 away at BBVA Compass Stadium. It was Chilean Diego Rubio who made the difference netting his fourth goal of the campaign.

Los Angeles FC vs Sporting Kansas City Prediction
To make things worse for Bob Bradley’s men, they were unlucky to lose the US Open Cup semi-final to Houston Dynamo on Wednesday evening. They finally produced a stronger attacking display, but the defensive line continued to be super vulnerable, allowing three goals in what ended up to be a six-goal thriller.
Bradley’s troops thus shipped as many as 14 goals in last five matches in all competitions (almost three per game) which will clearly be the music to the ears of Johnny Russel and Daniel Salloi who’ve bagged seven goals apiece so far in the season for the Wizards.
The visitors were also anything but hard to break down lately as all of last five games they played before the mentioned win over Houston saw goals at both ends and at least four scored.
Based on everything written above, we just can’t imagine a low-scoring scenario here as the Over 2.5 goals FT & BTTS is a must-take bet at the 1.72 odds. The value is in backing the Wizards to net two or more goals at 2.20, while you can also try with the Over 3.5 goals FT at the same 2.20 odds.
