Minnesota United travel to Kansas City for their US Open Cup clash at Sporting KC in hope to cause an upset and shock the home crowd. However, with their poor recent streak and three losses in last four outings, we don’t see their flags flying high and don’t feel they can take anything away from this fixture.
Sporting have been very convincing on home turf and although they have lost some consistency recently, it does seem they’re set to extend the great streak there. We have seen Peter Vermes’s men bag convincing wins in six of their eight home games this season, with just two draws also on the record.
After a furious start of the month and a 3-0 win over Minnesota at this ground, Wizards have been held to a 1-1 draw by Montreal Impact in their last home game but it’s a longshot to assume struggling Loons, who bagged just 14 points in 14 MLS games so far, can do the same.
However, the visitors have certainly enjoyed some thrillers recently and three of their last four games have ended with three or more goals.
Aside from this month’s win over their rivals, Sporting KC also have much better overall head-to-head records with four wins earned in five games and just one loss suffered in the process. They are yet to concede a goal against Minnesota in their home games and we do feel they’ll now build on the convincing tally.
