Sporting Kansas City vs New York Red Bulls Match Preview
Sporting Kansas City enjoyed a terrific campaign last time out to win the Western Conference by finishing top of their table at the end of the regular season. Despite this, they missed out on the Supporters Shield and they could only make it as far as the Conference Final in the play-offs in their chase for the MLS Cup too, beating LAFC and Real Salt Lake before going down 2-3 in the second leg of their Portland Timbers.
As they’ve struggled to balance their CONCACAF Champions League commitments with the opening weeks of the Major League Soccer Season, the Wizards have picked up eight points from a possible 15 so far which is a strong start, but not exactly at the levels expected after last season. They did however win their last home game in the league by a thumping 7-1 margin over Montreal Impact. Can they win out again here at 10/11 with Bet365?
New York Red Bulls also enjoyed a terrific campaign last year and like their Sunday night counterparts managed to finish top of their conference, winning the Supporters Shield for the third time as the first-placed team in the Eastern section. Again though, like SKC, the Red Bulls were prevented from lifting the MLS Cup despite making it through two rounds of the play-offs, losing out to eventual winners Atlanta United in the Conference final.
Perhaps taking that disappointment badly, Chris Armas and his charges have endured a very difficult start to the new campaign. Having been knocked out of the CONCACAF Champions League by Mexican outfit Santos Laguna, the men from New Jersey have also struggled in the league, picking up just four points from their first five games and coming into this fixture on the back of three straight defeats. Can they turn their fortunes around with a win here at 3/1 with BetVictor.
As always with Major League Soccer, goals are to be expected here. SKC may have racked up seven goals in their last home fixture in the league, but they conceded 11 times in the following three games and indeed haven’t kept a clean sheet in any of their last five fixtures. NYRB have some attacking quality to call upon in the likes of Andreas Ivan and the record-breaking Bradley Wright-Phillips so we’re on the home win and BTTS bet at 5/2 with Bet365.
