Seattle Sounders FC vs Sporting Kansas City Match Prediction

Seattle Sounders vs Sporting Kansas City Predictions, Betting Tips, and Preview

Seattle Sounders extended their progress in the MLS 2017 table after a 4-0 win over Minnesota United. Early goals from Will Bruin and Clint Dempsey set the tone for the game, while second-half goals from Jordan Morris and Dempsey ensured a brilliant win for Brian Schmetzer’s team. Sporting Kansas City failed to hold on to a decisive advantage, as they would only draw 1-1 with Atlanta United. After a goalless first half, Benny Feilhaber scored from the spot in the 59th minute to give Kansas City a crucial advantage. Jacob Peterson, though, levelled the scores in the first minute of injury time. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Sporting Kansas City have a good record against Seattle Sounders in recent games after winning four of the last six meetings in all competitions. However, their record is not too good when it comes to away matches against Seattle. Kansas City have managed just one win in the last five away games against Seattle, who have been in excellent form after winning four of the last five home games. I would consider backing Seattle for the win. All of Seattle’s last six home games against Kansas City Wizards have witnessed less than 2.5 goals. This record is primarily because Kansas City have failed to score in four of these six games. Seattle Sounders have kept three clean sheets in the last five home games, while Kansas City have failed to score in three of the last five away games. I would back a clean sheet for Seattle.

Seattle Sounders win – 10/11

Seattle Sounders clean sheet – 13/8

Sporting Kansas City have not conceded a goal in 60% of their last 10 games played

Seattle Sounders FC Preview

The rise up the Western Conference table continues for Seattle Sounders, who are now up to fourth in the table following the latest round of 2017 MLS games. It is a tremendous improvement from the club who were sitting outside the play-offs in the early parts of the campaign. A huge reason behind this rise up the table is the seven-game unbeaten run. There have also been four wins in the last five matches for Seattle Sounders. The team has been extremely fluid going forward and this has resulted in 13 goals in the last five games. Clint Dempsey is back as the top scorer for Seattle with nine league goals.

Osvaldo Alonso (ligament) is the only player on the sidelines for Seattle Sounders.

Sporting Kansas City Preview

Sporting Kansas City were able to preserve the top spot in the Western Conference, but the club has managed just one win in the last five league matches. In fact, the team has become the draw specialists of the 2017 MLS campaign after being involved in 10 stalemates. At the same time, only Toronto have suffered fewer defeats in the season compared with Kansas City Wizards. The club continue to possess the best defence in the league despite not having kept a clean sheet in the last six league matches. Gerso Fernandes remains the top scorer at the club with five league goals.
