Sporting Kansas City booked a spot in the postseason last weekend by beating Minnesota United 3-1. Before the final round of the regular season, those two were on level points, meaning that it was a duel for a place in the Western Wild Card game.
When it comes to the San Jose Earthquakes, they finished the regular season just behind Sporting KC. They should consider themselves lucky for finishing in the Wild Card zone because they weren’t great in the last couple of rounds of the 2023 MLS.
In fact, if the Portland Timbers didn’t lose to Houston Dynamo at home in the final round, they’d be the ones to finish in the No. 9 place in the West.
Sporting Kansas City vs. San Jose Earthquakes Prediction
Sporting KC has been great offensively in the last couple of weeks, which is the reason why they got themselves to the postseason. When it comes to the Quakes, their strongest weapon has been their defense.
Sure, they did concede in each of their last nine MLS games, but in their last four, they kept the opposition to only one goal. This time, however, we think they’re going to allow more than one.
