San Jose Earthquakes vs LA Galaxy
2018 Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 1 July 2018
Kick-Off at 03:00 UK
Venue: Stanford Stadium (Stanford, California).
San Jose Earthquakes host LA Galaxy for their MLS clash on Sunday in search of a first win since early May, where a poor spell of form sees them rock-bottomed on the Western Conference table after 16 games played.
LA Galaxy have other plans but they come into the match after a narrow but disappointing 1-0 loss at Portland Timbers, which saw their away woes continue once again. Indeed, it has ended a streak of two wins in a row – where they outclassed Real Salt Lake and Golden State on the backs of in-form Ibrahimovic and later Lassiter. However, we have seen them often struggle to put on such performances on the road and this could prove costly once again.
It is questionable whether the Earthquakes have what it takes to capitalize on this, only ending a five-game losing streak with unconvincing draws against both New England and Real Salt Lake recently. They have been scoring more goals, though, and this does promise another very exciting clash tough to call at Stanford Stadium!
San Jose Earthquakes vs LA Galaxy: Head-to-head
LA Galaxy have bagged a narrow 1-0 win over the Earthquakes in late May 2018.
The win only ended a streak of four consecutive losses to the rivals, as San Jose bagged three MLS and one friendly win along the way.
We are used to more exciting head-to-head clashes at this ground, with 14 goals seen in the last three games.
