Sporting Kansas City will be aiming to continue their strong recent form when Colombus Crew visit Children's Mercy Park in Sunday's MLS clash.

Peter Vermes' team go into the weekend four points clear at the top of the Western Conference, while their opponents are just one adrift of top spot in the Eastern Conference.

Latest Odds

Having taken 13 points from the last available 15 on home turf, they are available at 5/6 (1.83) with SportPesa to come out on top once again here.

However, the Black and Gold have won four and lost none of their previous six fixtures, and are priced at 16/5 (4.20) to collect maximum points in this one.

The side shared a 1-1 draw when they last met back in September, and there are odds of 5/2 (3.50) on offer on them sharing the spoils once again on this occasion.

Team News

Felipe Gutierrez and Colton Strom are ruled out with injury for Sporting, while Jimmy Medranda is also lacking match fitness.

Aside from long-term absentees, Pedro Santos is the only injury doubt for Gregg Berhalter’s outfit.

Sporting strong at home

With just one defeat to their name in the last 11 fixtures, SKC are currently the in-form team across both conferences.

Considering their opponents are enjoying the longest unbeaten streak in the whole of MLS, Sunday’s clash has all the makings of a tightly-fought encounter.

However, three of the guests’ last four victories have come in front of their own fans, while they have taken just five points from the last available 15 on the road.


Given Sporting have won four and lost none of their last five games in their own back yard, as well as emerging victorious in each of their last four home games against Columbus, those 5/6 (1.83) odds look like solid value on them coming out on top once again in this one.
