Nashville SC vs. Sporting Kansas City Match Analysis and Prediction

  Nashville SC remains undefeated in 25 consecutive games played in the Music City, returning to GEODIS Park for a matchup against Sporting Kansas City on Sunday with kickoff at 1 am.

Since opening their new stadium 18 months ago, Gary Smith’s side has looked like a different team. They look more like the side that reached the MLS Cup final in 2021, conceding fewer goals than any other side in the league this season.

Last weekend they only conceded six shots on target, although those chances were rarely from dangerous positions. They are one of the best sides at closing down space in their penalty area, making it hard for teams to score against them.

Although they have never missed out on the playoffs during their history, nobody knows if this current group can take them to be a truly elite team.

Sporting Kansas City is experiencing some tough times in 2022. Currently the second-worst team in the league, just two points ahead of the Chicago Fire.

After contending for the top spot in their conference until the final day of the 2021 regular season, they have made history by becoming only the second team in Major League Soccer’s history to go an entire campaign without having two Designated Players (DPs) on their roster. Alan Pulido and Gadi Kinda have not seen any action this year.

The team’s leading scorer, Johnny Russell, has four goals in his last four matches. Academy products Cameron Duke and Felipe Hernandez have three assists apiece. At the same time, Daniel Salloi can reach the century mark in MLS starts should he feature in the opening lineup on Sunday.
