San Jose Earthquakes vs LA Galaxy
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 30 June 2019
Kick-off at 03:00 UK/ 04:00 CET
Venue: Avaya Stadium (San Jose).
Both the LA teams are vying for the top spot, but LAFC is currently at the pinnacle while Galaxy is paying the price for their stumbles a few match-days back.
The last day, they did not waste much time in taking control of the proceedings, despite being on the road. Against Cincinnati, the side registered two early goals and then held on the scoreline till the end to take the three points on offer.
Without making much noise, San Jose is slowly making an ascend towards the top tier of the table. They are unbeaten in their last five match-days, and recorded a win over Houston the previous day, at home. A goal apiece in each of the halves, and some admirable defending saw them cruise through to post a home victory.
San Jose Earthquakes vs LA Galaxy Head-to-head (h2h)

San Jose Earthquakes vs LA Galaxy Prediction
San Jose was unbeaten in 11 of their last 13 matches, and in their last seven at home. Of these seven home ties, six were wins. The team also managed to register two or more goals in six of these seven attempts as well.
On the other hand, Galaxy lost six of their last ten fixtures and conceded twice or more in two of their last four. They were also winless in 11 of their last 16 away ties.
Importantly, h2h fixtures firmly point towards San Jose as the favorite. Four of the last five such wins went to them, and the squad registered two or more goals in the last four clashes at this venue.
As such, we can expect Zlatan Ibrahimovic and co to go through their away demons once more. But it won’t be an out-and-out home win. Consider that 12 of the last 16 face-to-face encounters had goals from both teams, and so did 11 of the last 14 at this ground. Moreover, San Jose conceded in seven of their last eight overall games, and in 14 of their last 18 at home.
By all means, expect either side to get their name on the scorecard.
