New York City vs Kansas City for the Major League Soccer championship match on Saturday at Yankee Stadium.
Start of a new round of the MLS, New York City and Sporting Kansas City face each other at the Yankee Stadium, located in New York City.
New York City
New York City, the home team, goes in search of the 3 points after not being able to get it in the last time they played, where they fell to Portland Timbers 1-0.
The local team this time hopes to return to the path of triumph and not lose track of the leader because the difference is just 7 points. New York City is currently in fifth place with 32 points, but with 3 games less, so if they win their pending matches they may reach the lead.
New York City comes from winning as a visitor to Colorado Rapids 2-1, now has the responsibility of winning at home after not having done so in their last game.
Sporting Kansas City
Sporting Kansas City as the visiting team, in its 11 games that it has played has won 4, drew 4 and lost 3, however, in the last games with direct rivals it has not gone very well.
Kansas is currently in the tenth position with 25 points, and 5 away from the playoff positions, the difference is not much so I think that if they lose this game, they can recover in the following days.
Regarding confrontations we have that, at Yankee Stadium they have faced 3 times, of which New York City won 2, and Sporting Kansas City won 1. The last time they played, it was at the home of Kansas, where New York City won 2-0, this duel has been recent, they played it in March 2018.
Today I think New York City is stronger, so at home, they shouldn’t have problems with Kansas.
