San Jose Earthquakes vs Colorado Rapids
Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 21st October 2018
Kick-off at 22.00 UK/ 23.00 CET
Venue: Avaya Stadium, San Jose.
The worst teams in the Western Conference take on each other in this second to last fixture in the MLS. There is no other polite way to put it.
Both teams have already been eliminated from the final rounds of the season. All they have left is to play for the loyal fans who have stuck with them all season long even when there was no hope left. The advantage lies with the home team for this match.
Though they wouldn’t like to admit this, the guests know, deep down, that this match is the only realistically possible scenario where they could come out with a satisfactory win this season. They will grab on to it with both hands.

San Jose Earthquakes vs Colorado Rapids Prediction
Historically the home team has won most of the matches when San Jose and Colorado met each other. With both teams playing for pride and fans, the hosts are expected to come out of this match victorious.
The teams will play it out safe, not eager to give away their one chance for a win in this season that easily. That being said the poor defence of the away team, as well as their inability to handle pressure at the dying stage of the matches will be their undoing.
The last 15 matches in a row between these teams have never saw over 3.5 goals.
