After beating Minnesota United FC with 1-0, Real Salt Lake will face the Earthquakes at Avaya Stadium. Both sides are struggling to find the desired form, so this match could easily go both sides.
San Jose Earthquakes
The Quakes are in the 7th place after 16 games played. Their point count stands at 20 and they will fight for their spot in the playoffs in the remaining matches of the regular part of the season.
San Jose are winless in the last three games. After two consecutive defeats, they only managed to draw Sporting Kansas City on the home turf. Also, SJE’s troubles are tied to Avaya Stadium, too. After 8 home games, their record reads 3 wins, 4 draws, and a loss.
Real Salt Lake
RSL victory over Minnesota ended their two-game losing streak. However, they have a reason to be worried ahead of San Jose visits. In the last two matches on the road, they allowed five and six goals, respectively.
The visitors are on a five-game winning streak in MLS. They were even beaten by a lower-tier side Sacremento Republic with 4-1.
