One of the top clubs in the league Sporting Kansas City, looks to retake first place in the eastern conference this weekend as they take to the road and visit the New England Revolution. Kansas City through 22 games now sits just a point out of first place in third position with 37 points. The Houston Dynamo are in second with 37 points, while the New York Red Bulls remain in first for the moment.
Kansas City has been equally as strong on the road as they have been at home, winning five matches and losing just four times away, outscoring their opponents 15-14. Still, they have been inconsistent of late, losing two of three and winning just two of their last seven.
They will look to get back on track against a lowly New England Revolution club that sits second to last in the east. They have just six wins this year and 23 points, and while they have just 26 scores in 21 matches, they have only allowed 27 goals on the year. At home this year they have played well, winning five matches and losing just two, outscoring their opponents 16-9.
The Revolution are looking forward to their home field after a three game road trip that saw them lose twice and draw once. They scored just two goals in that span, and visited Kansas City to play to a scoreless draw. New England will be looking for more offense, after having scored just twice in four games, the club had prior score two goals a game for three straight matches.
Betting lines: On the road, Kansas City is the slight favourite as New England are very strong at home this year. Kansas City has been playing inconsistent of late, and as these two clubs clash again for the second time in as many weeks, look for another low scoring match. They will each get on the board as the clubs play to a 1-1 draw.
