Our prediction for this MLS match:
Buoyed by a thrilling 5-0 win over San Jose Earthquakes, Colorado Rapids will be aiming to extend their winning run in MLS to three games when they host Sporting Kansas City at their Dick’s Sporting Goods Park. Robin Fraser’s troops have been in a splendid form of late, and is no wonder the odds for home win have been dropping. Andre Shinyashiki, who found the net in the triumph over the Earthquakes, is likely to lead the line for the hosts.
The Wizards, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form, with the team losing to both Dallas and Orlando City in the previous two league fixtures. Considering that Sporting have been struggling at the back of late, we do not believe that they are capable of grabbing something from Monday’s football match. The good news for the visitors is that talented midfielder Gianluca Busio returns from suspension.
Highlighted Player (Tim Howard):
Tim Howard is considered one of the best goalkeepers in the history of USA national football team. Howard is well known for his spell with English giants Manchester United. The experienced shoot-stopper played for the Red Devils from 2003 to 2007 and he spent the 2006/2007 season on loan at Everton.
At the end of the season he signed a permanent deal with the Goodison Park outfit and it has to be noted that he made no less than 354 league appearances for the Toffees. During the 2011/2012 Premier League campaign he scored his first and only goal for Everton as he found the net in a 2-1 loss to Bolton Wanderers. Thanks to the goal against Bolton he became the fourth goalkeeper to score a Premier League game.
In 2016 he decided to return to USA, signing a three-and-a-half-year deal with Colorado Rapids. Howard conceded 20 goals in 19 appearances for the Rapids in the 2016 MLS season and he managed to keep eight clean sheets. It is well known that the USA goalkeeper won the 2007 CONCACAF Gold Cup with the Yanks.
