Sporting Kansas City vs San Jose Earthquakes
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 18 August 2019
Kick-off at 01:30 UK/ 02:30 CET
Venue: Children’s Mercy Park (Kansas City).
Kansas has so far registered just seven wins from their 24 fixtures this season in the MLS. Day by day, their chance to get into the playoffs is passing by, and it’s high time that the squad does something drastic to get back on track.
Their inability to convert home ties into wins have been one of their major problems. To quote a stat, the team lost four of their last five appearances in front of the home crowd.
San Jose, who are locked in with Seattle and Minnesota for the second position in the table, hopes for a favorable outcome, taking into account the struggles of Sporting at the Children’s Mercy Park.

Sporting Kansas City vs San Jose Earthquakes Prediction
Kansas lost three of their last four matches, and six of their last ten as well. At home, they lost four of their previous five fixtures and was winless in nine of their prior eleven too. On the other hand, their counterparts were unbeaten in 17 of their former 21 match-ups and won two of their last three on the road too.
The Earthquakes also had managed to find the back of the net in 13 of their last 14 road trips. With these observations in mind, count on the guests to post a win this Sunday.
But taking into account the home advantage, and the performances of Sporting over the years against this opposition – registering six of the last seven overall h2h wins, nine of the last ten at this venue, and scoring two or more goals in eight of the previous eleven meetings at this stadium – the chances for BTTS to be fulfilled is very high.
