Sporting Kansas City vs Columbus Crew SC Preview

Sporting Kansas City vs Columbus Crew SC

Competition – MLS

Stadium – Children’s Mercy Park

Date: 27th May 2018

Kick-off time – 23:59 GMT

This game is between two of the MLS best teams as top of the Western Conference table Sporting KC host third in the Eastern Conference table Columbus Crew.

These sides have a close head to head record and they have both proved hard to beat this season.

The hosts have conceded just a single goal in their last three games, while the visitors’ defence hasn’t been breached in their last four games, so this has the making of a low scoring game.

The last time these sides met, it ended all square in a fiercely competitive game.

Sporting KC took the lead on the 19th minute, and when it appeared like they would head into the break with a lead, Kamara popped up with the leveler for Crew. The second half offered nothing more than 3 yellow cards.

Crew have not lost any of their last six games, winning four and drawing two.

Sporting aren’t too far behind with three wins, two draws and a single defeat in their last six.

These teams have met on 56 occasions over the years and nothing separates them as they have both won on 23 occasions while the other 8 games ended in draws.
