Seattle Sounders vs San Jose Earthquakes Prediction & Match Preview

Seattle Sounders vs San Jose Earthquakes Predictions, Best Tips and Match Preview of the Major League Soccer match on Saturday, 11 July 2020. Kick off scheduled at 2:00 am UK/ 3:00 CET at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, Bay Lake, Florida.

A huge interest has been generated over Garth Lagerwey’s men in this shortened version of the Major League Soccer. They are the defending champions of the competition – after winning the MLS Cup in the 2019 season.

With this revamped version of the tournament being just seven fixtures long (for the finalists), it seems a great opportunity for the title-holders to defend their trophy.

Their first match is against the Goonies, who could not even qualify for the playoffs in 2019. And on top of that, they are terrible once away from home.

By all means, expect the reigning champions to start with a win.

  • The latest clash saw Lagerwey’s men win with a 0-1 scoreline on the road.
  • They had also won four of the preceding five encounters.
  • They last lost a league fixture against this rival back in 2015.
  • Four of the preceding six games saw them scoring two or more goals.
  • The Goonies have conceded two or more goals in the last four meetings away from home.

Seattle Sounders vs San Jose Earthquakes: Prediction

Lagerwey’s men are the defending champions of MLS, and they will be hell-bent on securing the title one more time. They are unbeaten in the past eleven overall games, and in the process had even gone through a seven-match winning run.

On the other hand, their counterparts could not even qualify for the playoffs, and they were winless in nine of their preceding ten fixtures. In the midst, they even went through a seven-game losing run.

Moreover, they are winless against this opponent since 2015 in the MLS, and most importantly, away from home, they are on an eight-fixture losing run.

Taking into account these stats, expect a win for Seattle Sounders this Saturday.
