Sporting Kansas City vs Whitecaps Predictions

Sporting Kansas City played their part in one of the few low scoring ties of the opening MLS fixtures, with a 73rd minute winner from Nuno Coelho enough to see of the ten men of Seattle Sounders.

This ended an almost seven year run of Sporting Kansas City failing to beat Seattle Sounders away from home, and also brought with it some welcome away points after they had only won one of their previous nine games on the road.

Whitecaps didn’t fair so well in their opener. They hosted fellow Canadians Montreal Impact and never recovered after going two goals down in the first half. They attempted to stage a comeback with a 45th minute goal, but Ignacio Piatti added a second goal to his own tally in the 88th minute to put the tie to bed before Whitecaps got an injury time consolation goal.

I think it could be difficult for the visitors this weekend. They haven’t won away from home since August, with five of their eight matches on the road since then ending in defeat. Sporting Kansas City will be fairly high on confidence after winning their opener away from home and they have only lost two of their last 21 matches on home turf. 14 of these 21 games have ended in a win for Sporting Kansas City too, so they are in a great position to maintain a 100% start to the season.

Odds of 1/1 for a Sporting Kansas City win look really good value too, so I’m backing that along with a 2-0 correct score prediction at 17/2. The Whitecaps have failed to score in five of their last six away days, so they could find it tough against a home side who kept a clean sheet at the weekend.
