San Jose Earthquakes vs Vancouver Whitecaps
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 25 August 2019
Kick-off at 03:00 UK/ 04:00 CET
Venue: Avaya Stadium (San Jose).
Despite the respective positions of both, the current form suggests something else entirely. The Whitecaps despite being placed dead-last in the table were unbeaten in three of the last four matches and won two of the previous three in the league as well.
Meanwhile, San Jose is at present in a playoff spot, but has lost their last three games in a row, and is winless in the last four.
The setting of this upcoming tie could complicate things, as San Jose is unbeaten in their last five home ties, whereas their counterparts were winless in four of the former five on the road.
San Jose Earthquakes vs Vancouver Whitecaps Head-to-head (h2h)
- Nine of the last eleven matches had goals from both teams.
- The Whitecaps scored two or more goals in four of the previous five fixtures.
- Three of the prior four meetings at this stadium satisfied the BTTS option as well.
- The Earthquakes won 1-3, on the road, when these two met just a month back.
San Jose Earthquakes vs Vancouver Whitecaps Prediction
Vancouver was winless in 16 of their last 18 away ties and conceded thrice or more in three of the last six such trips. Meanwhile, San Jose is unbeaten in their previous 12 appearances in front of the home crowd and had two separate four-game winning streaks here.
Also, they had won on the road 1-3 against this opponent just a month back. As such, count on them to have the upper hand right away in the game, and for them to score at least once in the first 45 minutes.
But, taking into account the recent form of both, and the stat that nine of the previous 11 h2h clashes having goals from both teams, the chances for the same to happen this time around is very high.
