Columbus Crew at Sporting KC 5/27/18 - MLS Picks & Predictions

Sporting KC have been comfortably sitting at the top of the Western Conference for quite a while now. They will now play host to a Columbus Crew side who have also been great lately, and are sitting at the 3rd spot of the Eastern Conference.

Sporting KC (7-2-3) are coming into this match after a somewhat unexpected draw on the road against Minnesota United. They were dominant in that match, but failed to take the lead since they were equalized in the first half (1-1). Sporting KC are still leading the Western Conference with 24 points, four points ahead of LAFC who have played one less match. SKC have been really strong at home so far in the season (4-1-1), where they have scored 13 goals against 6 conceded. Columbus Crew (7-3-3) were engaged in a really balanced match against New England on the road last week. The two teams had their fair share of scoring chances in that match, but it was Columbus who scored the winning goal at the 85th minute for the final 1-0. That was their third consecutive win with a clean sheet, as Columbus are now undefeated in their last six (4-0-2). Their recent run has lifted them to the 3rd spot of the Eastern Conference, where they are sitting with 24 points. They have been really mediocre on the road so far (2-2-2), where they have scored just 3 goals, against just 2 conceded.

Columbus Crew have kept a low tempo in all their away matches so far, and there is a good chance we will see another low-scoring match once again.
