*These Sporting Kansas City vs LA Galaxy odds are subject to change

A draw and an LA Galaxy win are both priced the same at +280 (23.5%). Understandably, this makes coach Peter Vermes’ boys the expected winners ahead of the kick-off, with a 53.0% win probability. However, we do believe that a 1-1 tie is far more likely to happen than for any of the two teams to get the three points.

We should also see Under 2.5 Goals at Children’s Mercy Park this week. The odds are valued at -137, giving out key Sporting KC vs LA Galaxy prediction a 57.71% success chance.

It’s been some time since Los Angeles Galaxy last managed to get a win over Sporting KC. The last such occurrence was on the 16th of September, 2019.

Sporting KC team news and form: Shelton out

Khiry Shelton’s absence will hit Sporting Kansas City hard, and we will be eager to see how coach Peter Vermes will handle this blow, as there aren’t that many strikers he can choose from. There aren’t any other major injuries in front of the manager to deal with, but that one is enough for us to consider a draw as the likeliest outcome, according to our Sporting KC vs LA Galaxy predictions.

La Galaxy team news and form: Caceres to miss out

Martin Caceres earned himself a 99th-minute red card in the game against St. Louis City last week. Now, he’ll have to miss the game against Sporting Kansas City at Children’s Mercy Park. This will undoubtedly hurt the visitors’ chance of winning this event.

Predicted lineup: McCarthy (GK), Yamane, Yoshida, Brugman, Aude, Delgado, Cerrillo, Puig, Paintsil, Joveljic & Fagundez

Player to watch: Riqui Puig

The former Barcelona starlet is the player to watch in our Sporting KC vs LA Galaxy prediction, as he’s by far the top asset under coach Vanney’s guidance. With a market tag of €12m on his head, Riqui Puig is truly the heart and soul of the team.

Puig enjoying life in MLS

Riqui Puig made four appearances for LA Galaxy this season, during which he scored twice and earned himself two yellow cards. He’s a firm starter under coach Vanney’s rule and we are sure he’ll be a starter against St. Louis City as well.
