San Jose Earthquakes vs Vancouver Whitecaps
Major League Soccer 2016 (USA)
Date: Sunday, 16th October, 2016
Kick-off: 22:00 UK
Venue: Avaya Stadium, San Jose.

We are only two weeks away from the end of the regular season in the MLS. The race for the post-season spots has never been this interesting as there are many teams fighting for top six positions. Unfortunately for their fans, San Jose Earthquakes and Vancouver Whitecaps are not one of those.

These two sides will play more or less a friendly match at Avaya Stadium on Sunday night, where we should expect a bit more relaxed approach and high scoring game. The recent form of both sides is very inconsistent.

San Jose Earthquakes vs Vancouver Whitecaps: Head-to-Head Stats

The Caps have visited San Jose eight times so far and a majority of those duels have ended as a draw, five of them to be exact. The hosts were victorious twice, while the squad from Canada has claimed only one victory. The average number of goals seen in those games is slightly under 2.00.

The teams have already met once this season at Vancouver on August 2016. The Earthquakes were 2-1 winners on that occasion. This was the third consecutive match that saw both teams scoring at least a goal.

San Jose Earthquakes vs Vancouver Whitecaps: Prediction

Even though the tradition suggests a low scoring match, we believe this game is going to be completely different. MLS stands for one of the most entertaining leagues in the world, and since these two teams have lost the chances to compete to the playoffs, we should see a relaxed approach to the match. Both teams to score seems like a great choice, plus the value offered by the bookies is great.
