Our football match prediction:
San Jose Earthquakes will be aiming to make amends for back-to-back losses to the likes of LA Galaxy and Portland Timbers when they take on Sporting Kansas City at their Avaya Stadium. Dominic Kinnear’s troops recorded only one win in last five home fixtures in MLS, but they are definitely capable of grabbing something from Sunday’s football match. Sporting Kansas City were on the verge of beating Montreal Impact at the weekend, but the Canadians eventually scored a late equalizer in the Children’s Mercy Park clash. The Wizards remained in top position in the Western Conference and they will be looking to retain first place in the standings with a victory over San Jose. However, seeing that San Jose are on a five-game winless run on the road, we predict that the two teams are going to share the spoils in Sunday’s clash at Avaya Stadium.
