Thursday Major League Soccer action from Children’s Mercy Park, as Kansas take on Minnesota.

As it stands, Minnesota will go to Children’s Mercy Park in sixth place, Kansas are currently in second.

Sporting Kansas City go into this meeting with 43 points secured

With a win in their previous game, (2-0) against Chicago Fire, Kansas will likely be in a positive frame of mind.

Kansas keep finding ways to win, having secured 10 victories in their last 19 matches is astonishing this season. With 43 points, they are established in second in the League having won 12 fixtures, drawn seven meetings, and lost five games.

When Kansas host Minnesota, they will do so on the back of six victories and five darts on their own ground.

Sporting Kansas City will see 46 points so far this season, should they secure a win.

Minnesota United have 31 points to their name, going into this tie

It was a humbling defeat at the hands of Seattle Sounders for Adrian Heath’s men in their last match, they will be hoping to get something out of this game for sure.

Football is a simple game, first don’t lose, and Minnesota achieved this now in 15 of their last 18 games. They currently sit in sixth place, with a total of 31 points having won eight meetings, drawn seven matches, and lost seven fixtures.

It must be a worrying prospect for Minnesota to go back on the road, with a bud run of away performances under their belt this season. So far they have only secured two wins and five draws to the home team.

Winning this fixture will see Minnesota United on 34 points.
