Our prediction for this MLS match:
Sunday’s football game between Seattle Sounders and Sporting Kansas City will bring down the curtain on this MLS round. The Sounders made a promising start to the season, with the team leading the Western Conference ahead of the visit of Sporting. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team, but all Cristian Roldan, Raul Ruidiaz, and Jacob Castro remain on the sidelines with injuries. Joao Paulo is banned for the match.
The Wizards, on the other hand, are on a four-game losing run in the Major League Soccer, which is yet another reason why we are going to bet on the hosts. Andreau Fontas is back from suspension, while all Graham Zusi, William Agada, Nemanja Radoja, Kayden Pierre, Tim Leibold, and Kortne Thompson-Ford are out of contention through injuries. You should know that Seattle outclassed Sporting 4-1 in their last encounter.
