Sporting Kansas City v Los Angeles FC – Both team’s forms in the past 5 games
Home team Sporting Kansas City has obviously been in trouble the whole season. They have won only two games out of their last 16 when you count all the competitions. In their last 5 games, they have won once, drawn twice and lost twice. Their win came against Columbus Crew, who played without their best goalie Zack Steffen and best striker Gyasi Zardes and midfielder Will Trapp as they all were selected to USA national team in Gold Cup. In their past 5, MLS games Sporting KC has scored 0,8 goals on average, while allowing 1,4. Sporting KC has kept the possession in almost every game in their past 5, but are struggling defensively and their attacking force is missing a lot of chances.
Los Angeles FC
has won 3, drawn one and lost one in their last 5 MLS games. They lost their most recent game against Colorado Rapids 1-0 snapping their 10 game streak without a loss. Los Angeles has scored 2 goals per game on average while giving away 1,2. Carlos Vela has scored a goal in 4 of their last 5 MLS games. Los Angeles FC has been dominating the scoring chances in their past 5 and it shows in form of goals.
Conclusion – What to bet on Sporting Kansas City v Los Angeles FC
These teams are literally in totally different directions. While Sporting KC has 2 wins in 16 games in all competitions, Los Angeles FC has 2 losses in 20 games in all competitions. The difference between these teams is like the difference between night and day. Los Angeles FC uses a 4-3-3 formation, which allows them to attack with good force, but puts their defense in a bit of danger. They are scoring more than their opponents though, so they don’t really need to change anything. Expect to see Norwegian striker Adama Diomande start with Vela and Rossi on his wings.
also uses the 4-3-3 formation, but as these two teams face each other the away team has much stronger attacking force. This game might have lots of goals in it. Los Angeles FC is obviously in much better form and their squad has better material. With no injuries on the board as well I see only one favorite here and it’s the away team. Since total goals odds are so low, I’m picking Los Angeles FC to win with over 2.00 odds.
