San Jose Earthquakes vs FC Dallas
Major League Soccer
Date: Saturday, 8 June 2019
Kick-Off 20:30 UK / 21:30 CET
Venue: Avaya Stadium (San Jose).
San Jose Earthquakes are flying high going into Saturday’s tie with Western Conference rivals Dallas. The hosts won two and drew one of last three games, a streak which brought them on the brink of the play-offs spots on the West. Can they build on some fantastic attacking performances in the past couple of weeks to pick up a super-important home win against direct play-offs rivals here?
Dallas sit 5th on the West, but are just three points above 8th-placed ‘Quakes following the recent slump in form. They did manage to arrest it six days ago, though, beating Seattle Sounders 2-1 on the home patch. The win ended a run of four defeats and a draw in five rounds beforehand.
San Jose Earthquakes vs FC Dallas: Head-to-head
San Jose were the dominant force in the history of this match-up.
They lead the head to head tie by 10 wins coming into 49th encounter with Toros.
‘Quakes won three and drew one of last four meetings with Dallas.
Teams shared spoils in a goalless draw when they locked horns in this term of MLS back in late-April.
San Jose Earthquakes vs FC Dallas: Prediction
San Jose are form favourites coming into this tie without doubts. They won four on the trot in front of the home crowd netting at least three goals in three of these four victories. Given they go up against a team which lost four of last five away ties in the competition and they dominated the H2H match-up historically, we have to find the value in the home win pick at 1.85 odds.
Chris Wondolowski is enjoying an amazing spell of form. The veteran striker scored an impressive seven-goal tally in last three league ties. He should have plenty of room to keep it going past the struggling defensive line of Dallas’ here and we will alternatively back him as the anytime goalscorer at the odds of 2.10.
