Sporting Kansas City vs LA Galaxy Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Sporting Kansas City took advantage of New England’s recent misfortunes by getting a 3-1 win at the Avaya stadium. New England were the first scorers in the game through Teal Bunbury, but Gerso Fernandes equalised just 12 minutes after this goal. A brace from Diego Rubio provided Kansas City with three comfortable points. LA Galaxy’s poor run resumed with a heavy 4-0 loss against Atlanta United in the midweek action. Atlanta stormed into a 4-0 lead inside the first half to goals from Josef Martinez, Yamil Asad (2), and Hugo Almiron. Both teams were reduced to 10 men with Galaxy losing Jermaine Jones and Brandon Vasquez leaving the pitch for Atlanta. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Three out of the recent four games between these two clubs have ended as a stalemate, but Kansas City come into this match as overwhelming favourites for a win. Galaxy’s run of five defeats in the last six away matches coupled with Kansas City winning three out of the last four home games in the MLS are factors to go with a win for the home team. I would back Kansas City to get a win. Kansas City are not amongst the top scorers in the division, but they are up against a Galaxy outfit which has conceded 14 in the last five away games. Kansas City have scored over 1.5 goals in three out of the last four home games. I see tremendous value in backing Kansas City to score more than 1.5 goals.

Sporting Kansas City Preview

The top two places appeared lost a few weeks ago, but Sporting Kansas City are back in the reckoning at the best time in the season. Manager Peter Vermes sees his team outside the top two only after having taken less victories than Portland Timbers, whose second spot may not be available for long. Kansas City have played with two fewer games than Portland and maybe in with a shout to finish in the top two of the 2017 MLS Western Conference. Kansas City are amongst the lowest scorers with just 35 goals this season.

Sporting Kansas City Team News

Cameron Porter (ankle), Latif Blessing (thigh), Gerso Fernandes (dislocated shoulder), and Sonny Mustivar (hamstring) are the players unavailable for Sporting Kansas City.

LA Galaxy Preview

Even though LA Galaxy were reduced to 10 men in the recent match against Atlanta, manager Sigi Schmid will find it hard to defend his team’s poor defensive display. Galaxy have now conceded an incredible 56 goals in the 29 league games. Only Minnesota United, who are new to the MLS, have conceded more goals than Galaxy. The recent run of results is simply not acceptable for a club like Galaxy, who brought in the experienced Schmid as a replacement for Curt Onalfo. Yet, even the former Seattle Sounders manager has been unable to lift the results.

LA Galaxy Team News

Jermaine Jones is the only player suspended for the game. Sebastien Lletget (foot), Robbie Rogers (ankle), Pele van Anholt (cruciate ligament), Daniel Steres (back), Baggio Husidic (leg), Bradley Diallo (hamstring) are the players unavailable for LA Galaxy manager Sigi Schmid.
