Why you should back the Seattle Sounders
The Sounders will have the edge over Sporting KC in regards to rest. They have not been on the pitch since playing to a 1-1 draw with LAFC last Saturday. Meanwhile, Sporting KC played on the road in Nashville on Sunday and hosted Union Omaha in the U.S. Open Cup on Wednesday before flying to Seattle for Saturday’s match.
In addition, the Sounders have been prolific at home recently. In fact, they have scored two or more goals in five of their last six home games across all competitions on home soil. They won four of those six games and drew the other two.
Why you should back Sporting KC
The club has had success against Seattle recently. Sporting KC has won eight of the 14 meetings against the Sounders and is the only Western Conference team to win more than half of its games against the Sounders since the start of the 2015 season. Only Portland (nine wins in 21 matches) has more wins over the Sounders over that time.
In addition, Sporting KC is coming off one of its best performances of the season. On Sunday, the club pulled off one of the biggest upsets of the MLS season with a 2-1 win at Nashville. The victory ended Nashville’s 25-game home unbeaten streak.
