Major League Soccer 2012 Preview: Sporting Kansas City vs Chicago Fire Predictions

Sporting KC and the Fire will meet on June 30,2012 at Sporting Park, Kansas City. Catch real time updates on your favorite Major League Soccer 2012 Match.

Sporting Kansas City Preview

Sporting Kansas City holds a five-point advantage over the Chicago Fire in the Eastern Conference standings and they are just a point behindEastern leaders D.C. United and New York Red Bulls for the top spot.Keeper Jimmy Nielsen is currently tied as the league leader in shutouts with six on the season. The Danish footballer is nearly on pace to break Tony Meola’s single-season club record of 16 shutouts in 2000.

However, many doubts on wether Kansas City (9-4-2) will prevail against Chicago on this upcoming match-up. They have suffered their heaviest defeat of the season last week, with a 4-0 lost to the Philadelphia Union. Plus, Kansas City has not beaten Chicago Fire on home territory since 2007 and the teams have played to draws in four of their last five meetings at the Sporting Park.

Chicago Fire Preview

Chicago (7-5-3) had back-to-back victories in the last two games, defeating Eastern Conference heavyweightsand first placer New York Red Bulls 3-1 and then Columbus Crew 2-1 on the 23rd of this month. Forward Dominic Oduro leads the club with five goals this season while Marco Pappa has scored four and Sebastian Grazzini has contributed five assists from the midfield.

But the team’s playmaker, Brazilian Sebastian Grazzini’s contract situation is uncertain. Grazzini’s contract will end on the 30th this Saturday well after the match against KC but this will surely affect the player’s performance. Plus, the team will be without Costa Rican defender Gonzalo Segares, who will serve a one-game suspension for the red card he received in the club's last match.

Sporting Kansas City vs Chicago Fire Predictions: Draw 1-1

Ridiculous as it may sound but a draw will most likely happen in this match-up. Although Kansas City is at a much favourable rank than Chicago, the Sporting team has had trouble against the up and coming Fire during their last five bouts winning one, losing two and being tied at two.Both Sporting Kansas City and Chicago Fire are technical and clever and the match is guaranteed to be entertaining and likely to end in a tie.
