Draw

Orlando City started the season in a positive fashion but they failed to get a goal or a victory against Atlanta in the opening match. It was certainly not down to the lack of chances, but Orlando are a team that does not travel great. Sporting Kansas City have been able to build their recent success on a strong defence. After failing to keep a clean sheet against New York Red Bulls on the road, a clean sheet will be a priority for Peter Vermes.

Total goals under 2.5

Orlando City picked up a victory at the Children’s Mercy Park in their recent visit, but the team do not have a great scoring record on the road in recent seasons. The presence of Alexandre Pato provides a much-needed offensive threat for Orlando, but it may not be enough to produce a high-scoring encounter against a defensively solid Kansas outfit. Kansas City and Orlando were quite strong defensively during the shortened 2020 season and both teams have improved a lot for the season. It will be a tight game with less than 2.5 goals.

Both teams to score – no

Despite having excellent chances against Atlanta, Orlando could not find a way past Brad Guzan. The team clearly has to improve a lot in many other areas. One of the strengths of Kansas City would be the defensive record with the team conceding very few goals at home.

Sporting Kansas City vs Orlando City: Match Analysis

Sporting Kansas City

Sporting Kansas City have made a lot of improvements in many areas of the pitch. They have been unable to do this with the presence of many young players. After having been at the club for more than a decade, Vermes has been able to bring a lot of stability to the team. Even though the team has many stars across the line up, Wilson Harris might be the player to watch out. Graham Zusi, Kendall McIntosh, Tim Melia, Brooks Thompson, and Amadou Dia are unavailable for Kansas.

Orlando City

The style of football employed by Orlando City has provided a lot of excitement, but it may not to lead to a lot of goals in away matches. The team needs to work on their transition even more, but this may not happen in an away match. The presence of top internationals like Nani and Alexandre Pato provides a strong look to the offence, while there are plenty of reasons to be confident about the defensive capabilities of the team. João Moutinho, Oriol Rosell, and Robin Jansson are unavailable due to injuries, while Mauricio Pereira is suspended.
