Note: Odds keep changing so we recommend checking with the bookmaker for updated prices before placing your bet.

Goals on Both Sides

While Sporting Kansas City has the home advantage in this game, the hosts have been unable to keep a clean sheet in the five games played so far. The worst defence record came against Real Salt in a 3-1 defeat. Moreover, the hosts suffered a 1-0 defeat last time out before this game and we expect Vancouver Whitecaps to net at least once. Home advantage is why we think Peter Joseph Vermer’s men will also find the net. The hosts have scored in all the last five MLS encounters with Vancouver Whitecaps.

It will be a goal-fest

We are also predicting a goal fest on Sunday. This prediction is especially backed by previous encounters between the two teams. These teams tend to score and conceded many goals against each other, and it is something we predict in this fixture. Four of the last five MLS meetings between Sporting Kansas City and Vancouver Whitecaps ended with more than two goals.

The hosts to win both halves

Sporting Kansas has played two games at home so far, losing none. Their first home game was a draw of 1-1 with Orland City. The second home fixture against Austin FC ended 2-1 in favour of the hosts. On the other hand, Vancouver Whitecaps have played two away games, losing one and drawing the other. The visitors are on the road for the second time after losing their last game 1-0 away at Minnesota United. Also, looking at how the hosts have fared against Vancouver Whitecaps, winning 10 and getting 3 draws in the previous 18 meetings, they should easily bag the three points by winning both halves.

Match Preview: Can Sporting Kansas keep their good record against Vancouver Whitecaps going?

With both teams sharing points, the only worry for the hosts is moving up the MLS table. Vancouver Whitecaps are 8th on the MLS table, one position above the hosts. We have more details in the Punditfeed game preview below.

Sporting Kansas City

The hosts have a record to protect in this fixture. They have won 10 and got 5 draws out of the last 18 meetings with Vancouver Whitecaps. Sporting Kansas City manager, Peter Joseph Vermes is also unbeaten by the visitors’ manager, winning three and drawing one of the four meetings. The tactician averages 1.55 point per match. The hosts come into this fixture with one home victory and a draw. Moreover, Sporting Kansas is yet to lose an MLS match to Vancouver Whitecaps in the last five meetings dating back to April 2018.

Vancouver Whitecaps

Travelling twice, and especially on the back of a loss, will be tricky for Marc Dos Santos and his team. The Canadian tactician is yet to win against his Sunday host, which puts a lot of pressure on the visiting side. With an average of 1.34 points per match after seven years in management, Marc Dos Santos will need to work things out differently if he is to inspire victory on the road against Sporting Kansas City.
