Sporting Kansas City Team News
After a fantastic last season in which they finished in 3rd place in Western Conference, this season is very disappointing for Sporting. They are in the last place on the table with seven wins and 26 points after 27 rounds. Seven rounds before the season end they are without any chances to finish in the top 7 and to qualify for the playoffs.
They are in the hot-and-cold form. Two defeats and two wins in the last four games and that’s the thing with Sporting during the season – inconsistency.
Another problem for Sporting KC is their terrible defence. They conceded 49 goals this season and only two teams concede more. They failed to keep a clean sheet in the last 15 league games.
Because they play without any pressure, Sporting’s games are very interesting in the last couple of weeks. In their last six games, we saw 25 goals which are 4.16 per game.
San Jose Earthquakes Team News
Another disappointing season for San Jose. After missing the playoffs last season, they will repeat the same thing last season, as well. They are in 12th place in Western Conference with six wins and 27 points after 26 games.
Sporting’s form is one of the worst in the league with only two wins in the last nine games. They are almost without any chances to catch a place in the playoffs, so they will play the last couple of rounds without any pressure.
Same as their rivals, San Jose has much bigger issues with its defensive record. They conceded 54 goals, more than Sporting KC, and only DC United has the worse defensive record in the MLS league. They failed to keep a clean sheet in the last 11 games.
Their last nine meetings were finished with BTTS and six of them with over 2.5 goals. Sporting has 11 wins, San Jose six.
Team News and Injuries
Sporting KC: Kortne Ford, Kadi Kinda, Tim Melia, and Alan Pulido all are injured.
San Jose: Gilbert Fuentes is injured.
