San Jose Earthquakes vs New York Red Bulls
Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 7th October 2018
Kick-off at 3:30 UK/ 4:30 CET
Venue: Avaya Stadium (San Jose).
The season is over for the Quakes, as they are at the bottom of the Western Conference table. Under interim Coach Steve Ralston, the team has only 4 wins in 31 games.
The Goonies, has lost 5 of their last 6 games, and are going to meet a strong NY side from the Eastern Conference. The last action of the Quakes in the league was against Houston Dynamo away, which they lost 3-2.
Individual errors from the players lead to too many corners awarded to the Dynamos. Fouls committed around the box resulted in free kicks to the Houston team. Their frailty to defend set pieces will give them nightmares against the Metros on Sunday.
The Bulls from New York will look to improve their record of 19 wins in 13 games. Streak of 4 wins in the last 6 matches sounds impressive. The last match win against Atlanta has made the team stronger mentally. Atlanta fell 2-0 at San Jose.
Head coach Chris Armas has to teach his team some obedience on the pitch. The Bulls committed 17 fouls and picked up 3 yellow card against Atlanta. The forwards has to time their runs into the area better without straying offside like they did 6 times last match.
NY Red Bulls has the second best away record in the league. If that continues, San Jose will be looking at a home defeat.
