USA – MLS: Sporting Kansas City vs Seattle Sounders

Sporting Kansas City vs Seattle Sounders Betting Tip and Predictions. Sporting Kansas City take on Seattle Sounders in the 30th round of American Major League Soccer (MLS).

Sporting Kansas City stand at the 5th position with only one point less than Seattle Sounders and only three points less than second FC Dallas, so in the case of win home team could move up at the second position. Their performance is not at the high level. Sporting have managed to win only once of their last seven matches (1-1-5), so they will have to their best in order to deserve three points. The main problem for home side is their defence. They have one of the worst defences in MLS.

Seattle Sounders have very good team and they are in a very good form. They are undefeated in the last five matches in all competitions and they are looking for another win. Good news for visitors is that Obafemi Martins has recovered from an injury recently and get back in a big a style – four goals in the last four MLS matches, including assists, so he could be the most dangerous player for home defenders.
