Our prediction for this MLS match:
After suffering a 1-0 loss to Dallas, New England Revolution played out a 2-2 draw with Columbus Crew in their last league fixture. The Revs are still sitting in the top half of the standings and a win over Sporting Kansas City should see them stay in the race for top position in the Eastern Conference. New England rolled over Montreal Impact 4-0 at home earlier in April, which is certainly giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of Sunday's football match. The Wizards, on the other hand, proved their worth in a splendid 6-0 win over Vancouver Whitecaps, with former Derby County ace Johnny Russell scoring a hat-trick. Sporting KC cemented top position in the standings and seeing that they are brimming with confidence ahead of the trip to New England, away win should be considered. It has be noted that over 2.5 goals were netted in each of their last five meetings in MLS.
Highlighted Player (Antonio Delamea Mlinar):
Antonio Delamea Mlinar is a Slovenian footballer who plays for New England Revolution in MLS. Milnar was born in Celje, Slovenia on 10 June, 1991 and his main position is centre back. The New England Revolution defender played for the likes of Celje, Sampion, Aluminij and Interblock during his youth career and he signed his first professional contract with Interblock senior team.
Mlinar scored one goal in 23 league appearances for “the Gamblers” from 2008 to 2011 and in 2011 he joined Slovenian giants Olimpija Ljubljana. He played an important role in the capital club for seven years, but in 2017 he decided to take a step forward in his career.
Mlinar signed a deal with New England Revolution in January, 2017 and he has been playing for the Revs ever since. He made his debut for the Slovenia national team against Poland in November, 2016, replacing Miral Samardzic in the second half of the match.
Highlighted Team (Sporting Kansas City):
Sporting Kansas City have been competing in Major League Soccer since 1996 and they won their first MLS Cup trophy in 2000. The club faced Chicago Fire at Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium in Washington in the play-offs final and Miklos Jon Molnar scored the winner for Bob Gansler’s team. 13 years later Sporting Kansas City met with Solt Lake in the title game and they were fortunate to defeat the Royals on penalties.
The Wizards welcome their rivals at Children’s Mercy Park, but they used to play some games at Blue Valley Sports Complex, Julian Field, Hermann Stadium and Durwood Soccer Stadium in the past as well. Sporting Kansas City were founded in 1995 and the club’s original name was Kansas City Wiz.
The Wizards wear navy blue shirts and dark blue shorts when playing at home, while the colour of their away kit is blue. Former Wigan Athletic man Roger Espinosa is regarded as one of the club’s most notable players and he has been playing for the Children’s Mercy Park outfit since 2015.
