Austin FC Outlook

Austin FC won 1-0 against Minnesota United FC last Saturday night away at Allianz Field, bringing the team’s overall record to 7-6-7 this season. Austin started the better of the two sides and were given a further boost when Minnesota’s Hassani Dotson was shown back-to-back yellow cards in the 26th minute. Austin capitalized and took the lead in the 31st minute with Diego Rubio finding the back of the net for his fourth goal of the season.

The Verde & Black shift their attention to their final match of June this weekend, a month in which the team has played four of its five matches away. Austin faced Sporting KC in May at Q2 Stadium, where Austin came out on top winning 3-2. Jáder Obrian found the back of the net twice, and captain Sebastián Driussi netted the game winner.

Austin will look to claim the season series and their second consecutive away win Saturday night. Keeping a clean sheet will be key to doing so – the Verde & Black’s six shutouts this year are tied for third most in MLS.

Sporting Kansas City Outlook

Sporting Kansas City is currently sitting in 13th place in the Western Conference, with a record of 3-12-5. SKC is coming off a 4-0 defeat against Columbus Crew last weekend.

SKC were missing seven players when they made the trip to Ohio through a mix of international duty and injury. The team has conceded four goals in each of its last three games, and its 44 goals conceded rank second most in MLS.

Sporting Kansas City currently has a 2-5-3 home record, with their last home victory coming in early June against Seattle Sounders. The Verde & Black will remember the close match they played against SKC last month though and will aim for another three points to continue climbing the table before returning to Q2 Stadium for three out of four league matches in July.
