Knowing that they could climb to the top of the Western Conference this weekend, Kansas FC will host Austin FC on Saturday night.
Starting with the hosts, only continuing on what has been a real purple patch, Kansas know that they have a golden chance to climb to the top of the table this weekend. In their opening eight MLS matchups this season, they have recorded five wins, one draw and two defeats, scoring 15 and conceding 10 in return. Mustering themselves a points tally of 16 and sat just two points adrift of league leaders Seattle, it should also be noted that Saturday’s hosts hold the best-attacking tally in the division. As for their recent run of results, last seen picking up a 3-2 win against the Houston Dynamos, Kansas have won each of their last three MLS matchups on the spin. More impressive, with 12 points from their last five contests, they have also won their last three matchups by an aggregate score of 9-3.
As for the visitors, enduring what has been a real sluggish run of form, Austin find themselves battling it out at the other end of the table. In their opening seven MLS matchups this season, they have recorded two wins, one draw and four defeats, scoring five and conceding eight in return. Managing to muster themselves a points tally of seven out of a possible 21, they open this weekend’s fixtures sat down in 11th and holding just a one-point buffer from slipping to the foot of the standings. As for their recent run of results, Austin have managed to land themselves just a single point from any of their last four MLS matchups, their worst run of the campaign. Given the huge recent gulf in class between the two sides, we’re backing what should be another tough task for the Western Conference strugglers this weekend.
