San Jose Earthquakes vs LA Galaxy Prediction & Match Preview


STRUGGLING San Jose Earthquakes will be aiming to turn their fortunes around as they host LA Galaxy in an MLS fixture. San Jose are bottom of the Western Conference and should pose no problems to the Galaxy, who are challenging at the top of the standings.

It has been a difficult campaign for San Jose Earthquakes, who are rooted to the bottom of the Western Conference. They are currently on a four-match losing run and were thrashed 6-2 at Los Angeles FC in their previous MLS fixture.

The loss at Los Angeles is among a string of recent heavy defeats for San Jose Earthquakes, who were also beaten 5-1 by New York City. Ian Russell’s men are also struggling at home, losing three of their last four matches at Stanford Stadium.

In contrast to San Jose Earthquakes’ struggles, LA Galaxy have enjoyed a fine campaign so far. Greg Vanney’s men are challenging at the top of the Western Conference and head into Sunday’s clash with five wins from their last six matches.

LA Galaxy have also been decent on their travels and picked up a 1-0 victory at Real Salt Lake in their previous away fixture. However, they are often a bit suspect at the back and have kept just three clean sheets in their last 11 fixtures on the road.

The bookies appear to be anticipating a closely fought contest with a win for San Jose Earthquakes priced at 6/4 by Betfred, who is also offering 11/8 for an LA Galaxy victory. A draw is set at odds of 5/2 by Betfred.

LA Galaxy have the upper hand in recent matches against San Jose Earthquakes having won the last three meetings. They triumphed 4-3 in their last MLS clash back in April.

Dejan Joveljic is the leading scorer for LA Galaxy with 11 goals and will be the one to watch on Sunday. The striker has also found the net in two of the last three matches against San Jose Earthquakes and is priced at 5/4 by Betfred to maintain his scoring run.

Amahl Pellegrino will be the one tasked to provide the spark in attack as he looks to add to his five MLS goals this season. The striker could be worth keeping an eye on to score anytime at 8/5 with Betfred.

Carlos Akapo, James Marcinkowski and Bruno Wilson remain sidelined for San Jose Earthquakes and will miss Sunday’s clash. Benjamin Kikanovic could be handed a start after scoring off the bench last tine out.

LA Galaxy are still without Riqui Puig, who continues to nurse a groin injury. The visitors are likely to retain much of the same team that won at Real Salt Lake last time out.

San Jose Earthquakes: Jackson, Marie, Munie, Rodrigues, Vitor Costa, Yueill, Tsakiris, Espinoza, Lopez, Pellegrino, Kikanovic
LA Galaxy: McCarthy, Yamane, Caceres, Yoshida, Nelson, Lepley, Cerrillo, Gabriel Pec, Fagundez, Paintsil, Joveljic

It was a seven-goal thriller in the last meeting between San Jose Earthquakes and LA Galaxy and another high-scoring encounter could be on the cards. Over 4.5 goals is priced at 9/4 by Betfred, who is also offering evens for over 3.5 goals.

LA Galaxy have opened the scoring in the last six meetings with San Jose Earthquakes and could be backed to grab the first goal on Sunday at 9/10 by Betfred.
