Sporting KC will welcome Real Salt Lake to Children’s Mercy Park for a matchday 0 fixture in USA MLS. The last meeting on 28th November 2021 ended in a Real Salt Lake 2-1 win. Both sides have met twenty-eight times in the most recent seasons. Sporting KC has won 7 matches, and Real Salt Lake triumphed in 13. Recent outings average 2.50 goals, while both teams score 61% of the time.
Sporting KC’s latest fixture against Chicago Fire ended in an away 3-1 loss. I expected more from Sporting. The lack of focus in the final third cost them three points. Sporting KC was more dominant in the second half and scored in the 56 minute.
Real Salt Lake’s recent game against Nashville SC ended in a home 2-1 win. Although Claret and Cobalt didn’t match their opponent’s intensity and quality while on possession, it was still enough. Real Salt Lake had good chances in both halves and scored in the 2nd and 54th minute.
Since the start of the season, The Wiz is more dominant at home. They have one wins out of 1 games on home soil. SKC has one of the best defence in the league. They have kept a clean sheet in 100% of their home games.
Real Salt Lake has picked up 10 points from the previous four league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. La Realeza wins 2.00 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows.
It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one.
Claret and Cobalt got the three points in their previous away games but are still off their best. Their away record does not convince me that they have what it takes to avoid defeat on Saturday.
I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory.My prediction is Sporting KC to win.
Both sides have plenty of quality in the attack which often results in high-scoring games. I don’t think this one on Saturday will be any different. On average, both teams score in 25% of Sporting KC’s home and Real Salt Lake’s away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
