San Jose Earthquakes vs Sporting Kansas City Our Top Three Predictions

Our soccer tips are bias-free and based on a comprehensive analysis of stats, team news and available information. The following are the best three tips for San Jose Earthquakes vs Kansas City:

Note: Odds are correct at the time of writing our preview. Please confirm your betslip with the bookmaker for updated prices.

Goals on both sides

These are two teams in great form. The only business for both sides is to score goals and secure a win. San Jose has played four times at home this season, scoring five times. However, failing to keep a clean sheet in the last six fixtures this season is why we think Sporting Kansas will get a shot or more behind the net. On the other hand,  Kansas City has played thrice on the road and conceded five goals. A big worry for the visitors is that they have been unable to keep a clean sheet in all the three away fixtures this season.

More than Two Goals Expected at Earthquakes Stadium

Our second prediction is goals galore. With both teams struggling to keep sheets, we expect an open game on Sunday. A review of previous encounters shows a similar trend. Both teams have found the net in the last six encounters. Out of the last six games, three matches had six goals. Five out of six games had more than two goals.

The Hosts to Win

The third prediction by Punditfeed backs San Jose to get their first victory against Kansas City after five years. Kansas City doesn’t have a good record on the road having failed to keep a clean sheet away from home since the start of a new season. The visitors have lost two and won one away fixture so far. However, playing against San Joe that lost their first game at home and going ahead to win the next two home fixtures will not be easy. San Jose’s two home victories have been by a margin of two and three goals.

Game Preview: San Jose Earthquakes looking for the first League Victory against Sporting Kansas since April 2016

Failing to defeat Sporting Kansas City since 2016 in the MLS is a big worry for the travelling squad. But with both teams in great form, we expect tough opposition from both sides.

San Joe Earthquakes

The hosts are worried about losing their last two games before this fixture. Even more worrying is a poor record againts the visitors. San Jose manager, Matia Jesus Almeyda has lost more games (31) than he has won (26) with the hosts. With only 1.31 average points per match, Matias Almeyda has another uphill task on Sunday after 68 games in charge, managing 11 draws since January 2019. The hosts have won six and drawn twice against Kansas City in 18 encounters since 2011.

Sporting Kansas City

Sporting Kansas boasts of 10 victories in the previous 18 meetings with San Jose. The visitors are one point ahead of San Jose. Moreover, Kansas City comes into this fixture with a clean sheet victory against Houston Dynamo. However, inconsistency has made it impossible for the visitors to register back to back victories since the start of a new season. They have won one of their last three away games and lost the other two. For Peter Joseph Vermes, this game is vital. Peter Vermes has been at the helm since November 2009, seeing out 428 games with Sportking Kansas City.
