San Jose Earthquakes vs Orlando City
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 1 September 2019
Kick-off at 03:30 UK/ 04:30 CET
Venue: Avaya Stadium (San Jose).
San Jose put an end to their three-game losing run the last day with a win over the Whitecaps, and to boost their confidence further, at this venue as well. Now, they turn towards Orlando, with a view to climbing higher up the Western table. The chances for that to occur are high considering that the squad trails by just two points from the runner-up spot.
Improving their chances, even more, Orlando is winless in their last five road games in the league, and so far has recorded just three wins in total in these matches. As such, the home advantage will play a major role in determining the outcome of this tie.
