Prediction: Minnesota United vs Sporting Kansas City – Football Predictions

Check out our analysis, team news, line-ups and see our prediction for this match.

Sporting Kansas City will try to reclaim first place in the Western Conference when they travel to Allianz Field on Saturday to fight Minnesota United.

The Loons could only score a 1-1 draw against the San Jose Earthquakes on Tuesday, despite having a man advantage for most of the game, while KC saved a point in stoppage time against the Portland Timbers.


Prediction for this match

Minnesota has recovered well from its poor form earlier in the year, but in the past few weeks they have struggled to find the extra spark to scoop three points.

Reaching a man for nearly 70 minutes on Tuesday, the Loons rarely entered the final third of the Quakes, playing a vertical rather than horizontal game in the second half.

Adrian Heath criticized his team for lack of quality afterward and while they miss their top scorer they should be way better in front of goal than they have been recently as 10 different players have found the back of the net for Minnesota this season.

In their previous game, the quality seemed to be there, but the quality of Galaxy Keeper Jonathan Klinsmann was even better as the loons were hindered at every turn.

Losing at home and being knocked out last weekend was a rare feeling for this squad who have gone undefeated in the last seven home games, won six of those games and stayed clean five times.

Their two-game slide has put them in sixth place in the conference, four points above the playoff line, and as a result, they’ll have to make up some ground if they want to get back to the top four, currently seven points behind the Colorado Rapids for this position.

An elite team is characterized by how well it can react to one blow, and Peter Vermes saw his team answer the call in that department all season.

On Wednesday, his Wizards dropped after 17 minutes, trailing home for the seventh time this year, but found a way to score another point.

This team was unusually flat and slow in the first half against the Timbers but made some nice adjustments at half time that paid off later in the game.

Lately, this team has developed successfully through the away games, unbeaten in the last five away games and defeated their opponent 11-2 over this distance, while they remained clean as a guest in the last two games.

KC is in a dogfight for first place at the conference, with the Seattle Sounders taking back the top spot on Wednesday with their victory and the wizards draw.

Kansas City’s slow start on Wednesday could be explained by the fact that they have had such a crowded schedule lately as they haven’t had a full week between games and no more than four days between games since the international break in early July August.

Probability: Minnesota United 1-1 Sporting Kansas City

The Loons were strong defensively at Allianz Field, but for the last two games they have faced a hot goalkeeper and a well-organized defense in front of goal.

KC always seems to have an answer, but with little time to rest between games lately, it wouldn’t be a surprise if this team struggled out of goal again.
