Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 2nd July 2017
Kick off at 00:00 UK/ 01:00 CET
Venue: Children’s Mercy Park.
Sporting KC will host Portland Timbers in the Western Conference derby this Saturday at Children’s Mercy Park.
The Wizards will come in the game in a much better form looking to build on the impressive run of six consecutive games without a loss.
Peter Vermes can be thrilled to know that his team managed to stay unbeaten in spite of a tough schedule which saw them playing three straight games on the road.
The latest of the successes came on Wednesday evening when Sporting easily advanced to the US Open Cup quarterfinal past Houston Dynamo.
Wizards’ home form is even more impressive since they picked up seven wins and a draw in last eight outings at Children’s Mercy Park.
Portland opened the new season in a promising way, but Caleb Porter has been struggling a lot to find the way to fix the holes in his team’s defensive line in the most recent period.
The Timbers allowed at least two goals in each of the last four league matches which is the main reason for the fact Portland suffered three losses in last four fixtures.

Sporting KC vs Portland Timbers: Prediction
