Manchester United vs SJ Earthquakes
Date: Sunday, 22 July 2018
Kick-Off at 22:00 UK / 23:00 CET
Venue: Levi’s Stadium, Santa Clara.
Manchester United will continue the US tour on Sunday when they take on MLS outfit San Jose Earthquakes in the second friendly of the pre-season schedule.
The first one saw the Red Devils draw 1-1 to Mexican heavyweights America. It was generally a solid performance from the mixed Jose Mourinho line-up on the occasion.
Anthony Martian led the line up front, while the lone goal came from Spanish veteran Juan Mata late in the second half.
We can expect a similar starting XI for Mourinho here against San Jose as well since the Special One still can’t count on his main stars.
These include World Cup contestants as well as Alexis Sanchez who is still having problems to get the US visa.

The two teams met each other once in the past.
The clash took place at the International Champions Cup during the summer off-season three years ago.
Man United won 3-1 back then.
Manchester United vs San Jose Earthquakes: Prediction
United should be greater favourites than they were against America here. San Jose are going through a nightmare season in this term of MLS as it’s already now crystal clear they won’t match the previous season’s success when they reached the play-offs.
The team led by Mikael Stahre sits at the very foot of the Western Conference standings with only 12 points from 19 matches. They come into this off the back of seven defeats and three draws in last ten MLS affairs. .
The likes of Martial, Mata and Mitchell should get plenty of space to deliver here as San Jose’ defensive line is anything but reliable this season.
We’ll thus go with Manchester United to win as the main betting option, while braver tipsters can try with the Red Devils to win & BTTS.
