Sporting Kansas City vs Houston Dynamo Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Sporting Kansas City come into the double-header against Houston Dynamo after having suffered a 2-1 loss at the BBVA Compass stadium. Kansas City were able to get the first goal through Jimmy Medranda in the 33rd minute. This brilliant long-range effort was finally cancelled out by Tomas Martinez in the 63rd minute. The brilliant volley from the left-sided midfielder acted as an impetus for Houston Dynamo get the winner from a Eric Palmer-Brown own goal in the 77th minute. Vicente Sanchez had struck the post earlier in the game for Houston Dynamo.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Kansas City may have lost against Houston Dynamo in the recent game, but a match at the Children’s Mercy Park is a different ball game altogether. Kansas City are extremely strong at home – despite the recent loss against Vancouver Whitecaps. In fact, this is the only loss for the club in more than 20 MLS matches at this ground. Houston Dynamo do not travel well and have picked up just three points from the last five trips. Yet, Houston will be looking to get something out of the game in order to make it to the top four. I would back a draw in the game.

Despite a strong run of form, Sporting Kansas City have kept just one clean sheet in the last nine home games. Houston have been able to score in each of the last five visits to the Children’s Mercy Park. I see tremendous value in backing both teams to score.

Draw – 12/5

Sporting Kansas City Preview

Sporting Kansas City have been made to sweat over a place in the top two of the Western Conference after the recent run of two defeats in the last three matches. The club have had several opportunities to go top of the table or at least put an advantage over the teams behind them in the table. However, Kansas City may have lost form at just the worst possible time, as the team has picked up just one point from the last three matches. Kansas City continue to have the best defensive record even after conceding two goals against Houston Dynamo, who are one of the potential challengers for the top two places.

 

Sporting Kansas City Team News

Tim Melia (hamstring) and Cameron Porter (ankle) are the players unavailable for Sporting Kansas City.

Houston Dynamo Preview

Houston Dynamo have made a strong case for the team to finish in the top two places after hitting form at a perfect stage in the season. Back-to-back wins have lifted the club within two points behind Kansas City Wizards and potentially an automatic place in the latter stages of the MLS Cup play-offs. At the start of the season, the club were riding purely on form in order to get them through the games. In recent weeks, however, Houston’s form at the BBVA Compass stadium has taken a major hit. This has improved with wins over Minnesota and Kansas City Wizards. Erick Torres remains the leading scorer at the club with 14 goals.

Houston Dynamo Team News

George Malki (cruciate ligament) and Boniek Garcia (knee) are the players unavailable for Houston Dynamo.
