Los Angeles Galaxy vs San Jose Earthquakes
USA – 2018 Major League Soccer
Date: Saturday 26th May 2018
Kick off at 04:00 UK/ 05:00 CET
Venue: StubHub Center (Los Angeles)

Los Angeles Galaxy will be the favourites to beat San Jose Earthquakes when the two sides meet in what could be described as a derby match. The Galaxy have been in the news for the wrong reasons lately after star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic was sent off for slapping a player, is it all going wrong for the super Swede in the states?

The good news for Galaxy is that they were able to beat Montreal Impact 1-0 despite Ibrahimovic’s red card and that ended a 4 game losing streak that was becoming a tad embarrassing for the side.

At home Galaxy have lost their last 3 games in a nightmarish season and they will be hoping to bounce back in this game, what is clear is that there is a lot of tension and frustration within the team.

San Jose Earthquakes could go one point behind Galaxy if they can get the win here. Their form has been poor with another loss last weekend meaning they have just 1 win from their last five and 2 all season so far.

Away from home they have just one win but what has been interesting is that they have gone the last 2 games unbeaten.

Los Angeles Galaxy vs San Jose Earthquakes: Head to Head

  • The last time the teams met here San Jose won 3-0
  • San Jose have scored 8 goals against the Galaxy in the last 3 meetings

Los Angeles Galaxy vs San Jose Earthquakes: Prediction

The Galaxy are in bad moment and we can see San Jose come into this game the more relaxed of the two teams. They will take the advantage that Ibrahimovic won’t play and so for small stakes we will take on the away side.

  • Best Bet: SJ Earthquakes to beat Los Angeles Galaxy at 5.00.
