Sporting Kansas City Win

Kansas have only won 1 of the last 5 meetings between the two sides; but are unbeaten in three of the five games with two draws as well. SKC had a fantastic regular season last year, topping the Western Conference in the regular season. RB, on the other hand, were mid-table in the East with 7 less points. Kansas have won 38.5% of the ties between the teams, superior to the Red Bulls’ 35%. It will be close Kansas should push through with the 3 points based on recent form.

Total Goals Over/Under: Under 3.5 Goals

Kansas had the 4th best scoring record in the West with 1.81 goals per game (38 goals from 21 games), whilst NY only scored 1.3 goals per game (28 goals from 23 games, Covid Restricted League). No player on both teams hit double figures last season for league goals as well, the game will likely be cagey as result.

Halftime/ Full time: Draw/ Sporting Kansas

With both teams win percentages in this specific tie so close; the noticeable lack of goals from the Red Bulls, and the lack of competitive match fitness from both, this game will take some time before it heats up. However, Kansas will prevail due to recent form and the capacity to score more goals.

  • Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this,
    like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do
    with some pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of
    that, this is wonderful blog. A great read. I will certainly be back.

    Also visit my web page :: Vernon

    • We would love to have you back Vernon. Hope all is well and thank you for the words.

      P.s. You seem to also know a lot about this haha.

  • Thanks for a marvelous posting! I truly enjoyed reading it, you may be a
    great author. I will ensure that I bookmark your blog
    and may come back later in life. I want to encourage yourself to continue
    your great work, have a nice weekend!

    • haha I’m an alright author, one day hopefully on the greatness aspect of it all. Thank you for the kind words, really.

  • Hey there this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or
    if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.

    Any help would be enormously appreciated!

    • We use both actually. Fair question. What i will say is, don’t pay for any resource on coding. Many free ways to learn out there. Youtube always the easiest path to starting. Also, a lot of things seem hard until one actually sees how they’re done. You’ll do great, godspeed.
