San Jose Earthquakes vs Houston Dynamo
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Thursday, 27 June 2019
Kick-off at 03:30 UK/ 04:30 CET
Venue: Avaya Stadium (San Jose).
Houston faced a huge loss the last day, and that too against Portland, who lies in the bottom tier of the table. Given that Dynamo was on the road, but it certainly is no excuse for losing by a four-goal margin.
It took the Timbers 40 minutes to break the deadlock, and the first half ended in a considerably even 1-0 scoreline, but once the latter half commenced, the visitors lost all control of the proceedings and conceded three more goals in the space of just fourteen minutes.
Counterparts San Jose is one of the best teams at home in the last several match-days, with them returning four wins and a draw from the last five attempts. The last match-day, they were just unlucky to have lost out on three points against visitors Dallas.
The own goal gifted by the hosts did not help them at all, and if not, they could have boasted of five wins in a row in front of their home crowd, instead of the Dallas tie ending in 1-1 draw.
San Jose Earthquakes vs Houston Dynamo Head-to-head (h2h)
- 17 of the last 23 wins went to the teams at home.
- The last three, and seven of the last ten matches had goals from both teams.
- Three of the last four encounters at this venue had the same stat as well.
- The last time these two met at this stadium, the result was a 2-2 draw.
San Jose Earthquakes vs Houston Dynamo Prediction
Houston lost their last four games on the road and was winless in 14 of their last 17. Of these 17, 11 were losses as well. Also, the team could post just two wins from their last eight match-ups and conceded twice or more in their last three fixtures.
Meanwhile, San Jose has lost just twice from their last 11 attempts and is on an unbeaten run of six ties at home. Of these six, five were wins. They had also managed to score two or more goals in five of these six clashes.
Importantly, 17 of the last 23 h2h wins went to the teams with home advantage, and expect the same to happen this Thursday.
Going on, San Jose conceded goals in their last seven battles, and in 14 of their last 17 at home. Importantly, the last three face-to-face games and seven of the last ten had goals from both sides, and so did three of the last four at this ground.
As such, expect both squads to chip in with goals.
