We have four fixtures to look forward to in Major League Soccer on Sunday and one of them involves a team struggling at the bottom of the table.

The game between Sporting Kansas City and Seattle Sounders will be played on the 9th of June at Children's Mercy Park. The hosts are currently 13th in the Western Conference on 11 points while the visitors are in 10th place on 18 points.

Sporting Kansas City come into the match on the back of a 3-1 defeat at Minnesota United last time out. The opening goal of the game was scored by Minnesota United and they led 1-0 at halftime.

Into the second half and Minnesota United pulled away from Sporting Kansas City with goals in the 67th and 83rd minutes. Sporting Kansas City pulled one back in the 86th minute but it was too little, too late.

The defeat at Minnesota United means Sporting Kansas City have lost each of their last 3 fixtures in all competitions. The additional defeats came at Portland Timbers and at home against Vancouver Whitecaps.

The stats show Sporting Kansas City have won only 1 of their last 12 Major League Soccer matches. They have failed to win any of their 6 most recent MLS games on home soil and in 9 of their most recent home matches in Major League Soccer, both teams scored.

Seattle Sounders travel to Children's Mercy Park having been held to a 1-1 draw at home by Real Salt Lake in the MLS.

With the score 0-0 at halftime, Seattle Sounders took the lead in the 68th minute but could not hold on for the win, conceding the equaliser in the 9th minute of added time.

The draw with Real Salt Lake means Seattle Sounders are undefeated in their 4 most recent fixtures in all competitions.

There have been wins at St. Louis City in the MLS and at home against Phoenix Rising in the US Open Cup. Seattle Sounders were also held to a 1-1 draw at home by Vancouver White Caps in the league.

Trends show Seattle Sounders have not lost in 6 of their last 7 matches in Major League Soccer. They have won 3 of their 4 most recent away trips in the league and have seen both teams score in 4 of their last 5 away MLS games.

Looking ahead to the team news and Sporting Kansas City have five players in the treatment room, with Erik Thommy, Danny Flores, Kayden Pierre, Remi Walter, and Logan Ndenbe all missing out.

Seattle Sounders make the trip without five players of their own as Pedro De la Vega, Jon Bell, Leo Chu, Nathan Cardoso, and Braudilio Rodrigues are all unavailable due to injury.

Our algorithm suggests we should see both team score in this game and that prediction aligns with their recent results.

Real Salt Lake have been struggling to win games but could claim a point against a team only three places above them in the Western Conference.
