Our prediction for this MLS match:
New York Red Bulls and Sporting Kansas City go head to head at Red Bull Arena in what is expected to be a close MLS encounter. New York Red Bulls suffered a 3-2 loss to Columbus Crew in the MLS Cup last 16 last term, and, no doubt, they are eager to record a much better result in the 2021 season. The club chiefs did well to sign loan deals with the likes of Fabio, Edwards, Coronel, Gutman and Diarra, but Daniel Royer is still expected to play key role in Gerhard Struber’s team.
The Wizards, on the other hand, did well to beat LA Galaxy in their last warm-up game, but beating New York Red Bulls on the road is easier said than done. A close match is on the cards at Red Bull Arena, and we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. Israel international Gadi Kinda, who signed a permanent deal with Sporting Kansas City, will be one of the men to watch in the away team.
Highlighted Player (Alejandro Romero Gamarra):
Born in Ciudadela, Argentina on January 11, 1995, Alejandro Romero Gamarra is an attacking midfielder who plays for New York Red Bulls. The Argentine footballer, commonly known as Kaku, began his youth career at Huracan and he continued playing for el Globo at senior level.
After scoring nine goals in 94 appearances for the club, Kaku joined New York Red Bulls in the winter of 2018. Alejandro Romero Gamarra made his MLS debut for the Metros in a 2-0 win over Olimpia in the CONCACAF Champions League. Gamarra scored his first goal for New York Red Bulls in a 3-1 triumph over Club Tijuana in the CONCACAF Champions League.
Kaku has yet to earn a call-up for Argentina national team, but he made 5 appearances for the U20 team. His main position is attacking midfielder, but he can be used as a winger as well. In the 2013/2014 season he won Copa Argentina with Huracan.
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.
