Home side is fighting for their place in the playoffs and they are two points ahead of Houston Dynamo. However, they are not performing very well lately as they picked up just a point from the last three matches.

Mike Petke’s side has been doing a decent job in the front, but the hosts need to improve their defensive work as they have conceded 32 goals so far.

Real Salt Lake are one of the best teams when playing in front of the home crowd as they allowed just four points to their visitors.

Sporting KC are sitting on the top of the Western Conference and they’ll fight a tight battle with Dallas and Los Angeles FC for one of the two direct places in the playoff quarter-finals.

Felipe Gutierrez and the lads have been pretty productive so far, while their defence did a good job. Sporting Kansas City are putting fairly good displays at away grounds, however they haven’t celebrated an away victory in the last three outings.
