Los Angeles Galaxy
San Jose Earthquakes
After 18 games, LA Galaxy has had a fantastic season thus far, and they are currently ranked fifth going into this specific matchup.
They have encountered some issues in their most recent games, losing three of their previous six games overall in all competitions, including their most recent game.
The LA Galaxy’s latest match was a derby day match against Los Angeles FC, and although twice coming from behind, they were defeated 3-2.
In that contest, Rayan Raveloson scored, continuing his remarkable displays from midfield, where he has established himself as a formidable talent.
If other outcomes go their way, a victory might allow LA Galaxy to move up to third, giving them a lot to play for going into this match.
The San Jose Earthquakes will be hoping to advance from 13th place, and the visitors are aiming to do the same. A win could see them rise two spots.
The Goonies are currently tied for last place with Sporting Kansas City on goal differential alone, despite having the weakest defense in the division.
The San Jose Earthquakes have let up the most goals of any team, with 37 goals allowed after 18 games, according to Alex Covelo’s team.
In their most recent match against Toronto, which resulted in a draw, they surrendered their early advantage after conceding two goals in the space of four minutes.
The San Jose Earthquakes’ ability to compete for points in that game was demonstrated by Jack Skahan’s goal in the 92nd minute to secure a crucial point.
Even though LA Galaxy have recently struggled with their performance, this game might be the ideal chance for them to rebound.
Overall, the San Jose Earthquakes have had a challenging season, especially in terms of goals allowed, which should aid the home team in securing three points.
