Sunday at Children’s Mercy Park, as Kansas host San Jose in the MLS.

San Jose (twelfth), travel to Children’s Mercy Park with high expectations, as they take on fourteenth placed Kansas.

With the MLS season well into its stride, Sporting Kansas City have managed to gain 23 points

Another victory would be a terrific achievement, but that is what Peter Vermes will be asking from his team, as they go into this game on the back of strong results after beating Austin 4-3 and LA Galaxy 4-2

Also, Kansas need to find a way to generate wins on a consistent basis, as they’ve recorded eight losses in their last 12 meetings. With a fourteenth position in the league and 0 wins, 0 losses and 0 draws, they currently have 23 points in the League.

When Kansas host San Jose, they will do so on the back of four victories, two draws, and six losses on their own ground.

A win in this fixture would take Sporting Kansas City’s points to 26 in the League.

San Jose go into this match with 27 points secured

Following two straight wins for San Jose in their most recent games, they will be keen to continue that form going into this fixture.

Also, suffering four losses in seven meetings is a terrible run of form for any club, Álex Covelo’s San Jose will know this and will be hopeful of turning it around. Now they have 0 matches won, 0 games lost and 0 duels drawn; that’s why they currently sit in twelfth place, with a total of 27 points.

San Jose now travel, knowing that their current away form is woeful. So far this season they have won one game, drawn four games, and lost eight matches matches on the road.

A win in this fixture, would take San Jose’s points from 27 to 30, so far this season.
