SPKC vs MU Dream11 Grand League Prediction – Sporting Kansas City vs Minnesota United | Major League Soccer

SPKC vs MU Dream11 | Dream11 Grand League Match Preview, Team News, Lineups

Sporting Kansas City play host to Minnesota United in the regular season of Major League Soccer at Children’s Mercy Park.

The hosts have been struggling for consistency all season. They have done relatively well in the last two months though, winning five times in the last 11 games, but the bad start to the season where they won just three times in the first 15 league matches, have undone their repairing job.

However, it’s still possible for them to make the cut for the post-season. As things stand, six points separate them from the playoff positions. It’s bridgeable, provided Kansas City string together a good winning run.

Minnesota United, on the other hand, must be enjoying the view as they sit 2nd on the table in the Western Conference.

Catching Los Angeles FC is impossible, but the manager Adrian Heath must be happy at the progress this club has made in the last year.


MATCH Info: Major League Soccer
When: August 23, 2019, 07:00 AM
Where: Children’s Mercy Park


Team News:

Sporting Kansas City:

  • Rodney Wallace remains a long-term injury absentee for Sporting Kansas City. The 31-year-old Costa Rican forward has played just one game this season.
  • Furthermore, the hosts could also miss Krisztian Nemeth, Botond Barath, and Gerso. All three players will be assessed before the game.
  • We expect Peter Vermes to choose the same playing 11 which started the last game against San Jose Earthquakes.
  • However, a change at the left-back is possible because of the availability of Seth Sinovic. In that case, Luís Martins could lose his place in the starting 11.

Minnesota United:

  • Minnesota United will be travelling at full strength for this game.
  • However, Osvaldo Alonso missed the last game due to a knock but is expected to be fit in time to feature here.
