Venue: Children’s Mercy Park (Kansas City).

One of the most interesting clashes in the Major League Soccer is going to be contested between Sporting Kansas City and Toronto.

The hosts are searching for one of the top two places in the Western Conference which could secure them the direct spot in the playoff quarter-finals. However, they tied two straight defeats and Peter Vermes’ side is looking to get back on winning track as soon as possible.

Sporting KC have been pretty efficient so far, while their home performances have been very convincing as they allowed only one defeat when playing in front of their crowd. They are just a point ahead of Los Angeles FC and their battle for the top two spots will be super interesting.

On the other hand, the visitors are one of the biggest disappointments this season. Although they are the current champions, Toronto are sitting on a very poor 10th place in the Eastern Conference. Their chances of getting the chance to fight for another trophy are very slim after being defeated three times in a row.

Sebastian Giovinco and the lads have produced a fair amount of goals, but their defending has been too poor. The visitors managed to snatch just four points when playing away from home.

Sporting Kansas City vs Toronto: Head-to-head

Sporting Kansas City have been much more successful lately although the visitors had a great last season. Home side booked six victories in their last eight encounters, managing to remain undefeated in the other two. The fans were able to enjoy goals on both sides very often.

Sporting Kansas City vs Toronto: Prediction

Although they are facing the defending champions, Sporting Kansas City are strong favourites in this one and they should be able to celebrate another win in a row against their rivals. Toronto seems pretty incapable of winning anything from this one.

Both sides are sticking with their attacking match plans and we should expect another efficient clash between these two sides. As Toronto have been involved in a couple of goal-galore matches lately, things one should easily go over 2.5 margin.
