Our prediction for this MLS match:
A spot in the MLS playoffs quarter-finals will be at stake when Sporting Kansas City and San Jose Earthquakes square off against each other at Children’s Mercy Park. The Wizards finished the regulation season in style, with the team beating the likes of Colorado Rapids, Cincinnati, and Real Salt Lake without conceding, and it should come as no surprise bookies see them as favourites to win Sunday’s clash.
Felipe Gutierezz and Graham Zusi are the only absentees in the home team. San Jose, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-1 loss to Seattle Sounders, and given their shaky defence, we do not believe that the visitors are capable of spoiling Sporting’s party at Children’s Mercy Park. The good news for the Earthquakes is that midfielder Jackson Yueill returns from suspension.
