What to expect from Sporting KC vs. Minnesota United

Time: Dec. 3, 9:00 p.m. ET

Channel: FS1

This looks like it might be the most evenly-matched game of the bunch as both clubs have even goal differentials and similar records. Sporting KC has a remarkably multi-faceted attack that has 11 players with at least one goal and nobody with more than six. Minnesota United is more reliant on Kevin Molino and Robin Lod, who’ve potted 41 percent of their tallies combined, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re less dangerous.

These two teams met recently—on November 1— but considering that game ended in a 0-0 draw, we didn’t learn much from it. Minnesota United is in fine form after dismantling the Colorado Rapids 3-0 in the first round, but it’s hard to penalize Sporting KC for a slightly less decisive win. If anything, their shootout victory provided proof that goalkeeper Tim Melia is ready for the spotlight.

Who will win the 2020 MLS Cup?

The Philadelphia Union finished the season at the top of the table and led the league in goals and goal differential while posting a perfect home record, but that didn’t save them from an early exit. Toronto FC was the other favorite in the East considering they’d made the MLS Cup Final in three of the last four seasons, but they too went down early. That left the East wide open, with Columbus taking the mantle of conference favorite.

In the West, the biggest threats are Sporting KC, who posted the best record during the regular season, and the Seattle Sounders, who are the defending champions. Minnesota United is a pretty heavy underdog, but based on what we’ve seen so far, anything is possible.

Here are the odds of each team to win the MLS Cup according to FiveThirtyEight.com:

TeamMLS Cup Odds
Seattle Sounders30%
Columbus Crew SC 25%
Sporting KC 22%
New England Revolution17%
Minnesota United5%
