San Jose Earthquakes vs Real Salt Lake
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Tuesday, 28 July 2020
Kick-off at 1:30 UK/ 2:30 CET
Venue: ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.
The Goonies came through to the Round of 16 as Group B champions, and have made it in style as well.
After holding reigning champions Seattle Sounders to a draw in the opener, they then proceeded to orchestrate a great comeback win in their next game against the Whitecaps. Later, they added one more win against the Chicago Fire.
Meanwhile, the Claret and Cobalt was completely overwhelmed by their competition in the Group Stage, and was just lucky to qualify for the knockouts. They managed to score a total of two goals in the process, and both of those had come against the Colorado Rapids – the worst team in the Group.
Likely, momentum is obviously with Matias Almeyda’s men, and they also have been the better team in h2h clashes in the last five years. As such, expect them to win this upcoming match-up.
San Jose Earthquakes vs Real Salt Lake: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Goonies had recorded four of the past six overall h2h wins.
- They had conceded a total of one goal from the past three games.
- In the last five years, they have lost just twice against this rival.
- Moreover, it’s been five years since Freddy Juarez’s men have won away from home as well.
San Jose Earthquakes vs Real Salt Lake: Prediction
Not only did Almeyda’s men hold the reigning champions to a draw in this tournament, but since then they scored a total of six goals in two games as well. On the other hand, their counterparts have a total of just one win from their past nine fixtures.
Moreover, they had recorded four of the last six h2h wins, and had kept clean sheets in two of the preceding three such fixtures as well.
Going on, the Claret and Cobalt were just lucky to qualify as one of the third-placed teams. If not for one of the worst teams in the whole competition – the Colorado rapids, Juarez’s men would not have even scored a goal.
As such, expect the San Jose Earthquakes to deliver a memorable performance this Tuesday.
