Sporting KC will welcome Minnesota United to Children's Mercy Park for a matchday 0 fixture in USA MLS. The last meeting on 21st August 2021 ended in a 0-0 draw. Both sides have met fourteen times in the most recent seasons. Sporting KC has won 6 matches, and Minnesota United triumphed in 5. Recent outings average 2.50 goals, while both teams score 50% of the time.

Sporting KC's last game in the USA MLS against Chicago Fire at home ended in a 2-0 win. SKC had more possession of the ball and took advantage of it. Sporting KC was dangerous in both halves and scored in the 4th and 6th minute.

Minnesota United's previous game in the competition versus Seattle Sounders ended in an away 1-0 loss. Minnesota United didn't turn up and failed to create clear cut chances for most of the game.

Since the start of the season, The Wiz is more dominant at home. They have seven wins out of 13 games on home soil. Although Sporting KC is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 23% home clean sheets.

Minnesota United has picked up 8 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Minnesota United wins 0.92 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Minnesota United kept a clean sheet in just 8% of their visits.

It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one. Recently they enjoy playing at home, having won two consecutive matches. Sporting is currently unbeaten at home in four games. Since the start of the season, they have lost at home on just one occasion.

Loons failed to win in two consecutive away games. It will be a big surprise to turn up on Thursday and win against Sporting. Furthermore, they are in really bad away form, having lost two consecutive games on the road.

I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory. Sporting KC wins on average 2.00 points per home game, compared to 0.92 points per away game for Minnesota United. My prediction is Sporting KC to win.

Both teams struggle in defence and concede on regular occasions. Sporting KC failed to keep a clean sheet in 23% of home games, while Minnesota United conceded in 8% of away games. On average, both teams score in 74% of Sporting KC's home and Minnesota United's away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
