Sporting Kansas City vs Real Salt Lake
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 11 August 2019
Kick-off at 01:30 UK/ 02:30 CET
Venue: Children’s Mercy Park (Kansas City).
Sporting found a temporary respite from their losing streak with a win the last day over the Seattle Sounders. Despite being on the road, the squad recorded a 2-3 victory and could use the momentum to record another one at home this Sunday.
Things look bright for them, considering the away form of the incoming visitors. Real Salt Lake might be in the playoff mix, and just four points lagging behind the runner-up spot. But, their performances on the road have been far from better.
In fact, they remain the only squad in the West to stay winless in their last five road trips.

- Eight of the last eleven wins at this stadium went to the hosts.
Sporting Kansas City vs Real Salt Lake Prediction
Real Salt Lake is winless in their last five away matches and was so in 11 of their last 13 such games as well. This league season, they have recorded just two wins on the road and is the only squad in the whole conference to miss out on a win in the last five attempts.
In addition, five of the last six h2h wins, and eight of the last eleven at this venue went to the hosts of the day. As such, rely on Kansas City to post three points on the board.
Coming to goals, do not misunderstand that Sporting is flying high and has the upper hand due to their home status. They are the favorites, but only in comparison to the struggles on the road of Salt Lake. In reality, Kansas City has major problems of its own.
The team had failed to keep a clean sheet in 21 of their last 24 overall fixtures, and in ten of their last eleven at home.
With these observations in mind, count on the BTTS option to be checked.
