2018 Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 9 September 2018
Kick-off at 1:30 UK/ 2:30 CET
Venue: Children’s Mercy Park (Kansas City).
The wizards will want to exploit this game and bounce to winning ways after suffering a defeat away to Seattle Sounders in their last MSL fixture.
Kansas City have had a mixed performance at home having won three of their last 5 home games, lost once and drawn once. This mixed performance must be aligned to perfectly winning ways if they need to climb up the league standings within the next three or so matches.
Having won the last 2 home matches, they will be motivated to come into this match to scoop the three points in this one. They are undefeated in their last 11 of their last 12 home matches. Even so, they have a high tendency of conceding some goals even against weaker teams.
Orlando City are by far suffering huge performance woes than the home team of this fixture. They are winless in the last 6 consecutive MSL matches. Moreover, they have lost in their last 9 away leagues matchups.
They will be coming into this away game amid all this problems and to be honest, it will turn out to be yet another predicament for them. Their away form may just propel them to another loss!
