FC Dallas vs San Jose Earthquakes
Major League Soccer
Date: Saturday, 27 April 2019
Kick-Off 20:30 UK / 21:30 CET
Venue: Toyota Stadium (Frisco).
Dallas got off to a surprisingly strong start to the new season. They’ve been in great touch lately and will come into Saturday’s home tie against San Jose Earthquakes in the highest of spirits following a thread of four wins in last five MLS adventures.
The Hoops bagged two or more goals in each of these four wins and they should really be in position to keep such form going here against the ‘Quakes. Jesus Ferreira and Bryan Acosta were goalscorers in the previous victory away at Atlanta United last weekend.
The hosts should have plenty of room to deliver past the vulnerable defensive line of San Jose’s here. The visitors were very easy to break down so far in the season, especially on the road.
The ‘Quakes lost two and drew one of three away games conceding eight goals in the process. Matias Almeyda’s men own the second weakest defensive record in the entire league with 19 goals shipped in eight matches.
FC Dallas vs San Jose Earthquakes: Head-to-head
San Jose will try and rely on the head to head tradition looking for success here.
The visitors lead the head to head tie by ten wins coming into 48th meeting with Dallas.
‘Quakes won each of past three clashes against the Hoops and they notched seven goals in past two wins along the way.
FC Dallas vs San Jose Earthquakes: Prediction
It seems the time has come for Dallas to finally bring the negative streak in head to head games with the ‘Quakes to an end. The hosts are massive form favourites here. They won each of past three home outings in the league.
Given San Jose’s defensive holes, the home win in a high-scoring contest is the way we imagine this match to end in. Braver tipsters can try with the home win & BTTS at 2.60 odds knowing the Hoops failed to keep a single clean sheet in any of last six matches.
