Sporting Kansas City vs Seattle Sounders Match Preview
Seattle Sounders look terrific value to again show why they are so difficult to beat – even though their recent record in Kansas City leaves plenty to be desired.
There is no question that since the second half of last season, the Sounders have been one of the form teams in MLS. They won 15 of their final 18 games in 2018 and only bowed out of the play-offs on penalties against Portland Timbers.
They have kept up the good work this term, with their sole defeat so far being away to the only team above them in the entire standings, Los Angeles FC, and Seattle look to have every chance of again being involved at the business end of the campaign.
The Sounders have failed to win on their last five visits to Kansas City, but they may just do so this time because their opponents are struggling at present.
Sporting have not won any of their last seven games, have only one team below them in the overall standings – albeit they have played the joint fewest matches – and conceded 10 goals in their last four home fixtures.
We simply do not see how Seattle can be such a big price here and fully recommend backing them to claim at least a point – while their odds for the win also appeal greatly.
