Toronto vs Sporting Kansas City
Major League Soccer
Date: Saturday, 8 June 2019
Kick-Off 00:00 UK / 01:00 CET
Venue: BMO Field (Toronto).
Both Toronto and Sporting Kansas City are struggling with the form going into a very important MLS tie on Friday evening at BMO Field. The hosts made it six consecutive games without a victory on Saturday when they barely rescued a point at the death of the affair against Canadian rivals Vancouver Whitecaps (1-1).
Greg Vanney’s men took only two points from past six league rounds and they’ve put their top-seven finish on the East in jeopardize with such poor spell of form. The Reds dropped to 7th place and are lock on points with Orlando City and Chicago Fire who are below the play-offs line. The lack of meticulousness at the back was their biggest issue of late as the team shipped six goals in last three matches. Can they finally keep it tight at the back here against the Wizards?
Toronto vs Sporting Kansas City: Head-to-head
Sporting were always a tricky opposition to the Reds.
The Wizards won 14 and lost only 4 of 25 encounters with Toronto.
Sporting won four and drew two of last six meetings with the Reds whose previous win came back in 2013.
Toronto vs Sporting Kansas City: Prediction
Sporting Kansas City were not enjoying the best defensive form of their own lately. They allowed five goals in last three league rounds, but last weekend’s 1-1 draw away at Houston Dynamo was certainly an encouraging result for Peter Vermes and his squad.
Overall, the Wizards failed badly in attempt to match last term success when they were regular season champions in the Western Conference. They won just 3 of 14 league games this season, none of which came on the road. Away from home, Sporting lost five and drew three of eight outings in all competitions.
We can’t see any of two teams keeping a clean sheet here which is why both teams to score has to be our main betting option.
