SJ Earthquakes vs LA Galaxy
Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 2nd July 2017
Kick off at 03:30 UK/ 04:30 CET
Venue: Stanford Stadium.
The mid-table of Western Conference neighbours will take on each other in the Matchday No 18 of this term of MLS this Saturday at Stanford Stadium.
SJ Earthquakes will be hoping to maintain the fine run of four consecutive games without a loss, but LA Galaxy will have their own calculations having lost only a single out of last 11 matches in all competitions.
San Jose parted ways with Dominic Kinnaer as Chris Leitch was appointed as the new head coach.
The new manager made the victorious debut on Wednesday evening when the Quakes saw off last year’s MLS champions Seattle Sounders 2-1 on the home pitch in the US Open Cup’s last 16 round.
It was the third win in last four games for the hosts who look quite ambitious in hopes to clinch the playoffs spots at the end of the season.
The Galaxy successfully bounced back after a disappointing home defeat to Sporting KC with the comfortable victory over Sacramento Republic in the mid-week’s US Open Cup action.
The French midfielder Romain Alessandrini has been in good touch lately and he is our top option for the outside bet on the anytime goalscorer pick at the sky-high 3/1 odds.
SJ Earthquakes vs LA Galaxy: Head to head
We are in for a goal fest this Saturday if we are to judge by the most recent history of the head to head meetings between the two teams.
Each of their last four H2H matches saw both sides on the scoresheet. This includes a demolishing 2-4 win for the Galaxy exactly a month ago when the two teams played each other at Avaya Stadium.
SJ Earthquakes vs LA Galaxy: Prediction
We believe that the new manager shock will help the hosts clinch their third win on the bounce on the home pitch.
Additionally, we have to back the Over 2.5 goals FT at the attractive odds of 19/20 as an alternative betting prediction.
