San Jose Earthquakes
San Jose Earthquakes went to Alex Covelo when they failed to win any of their first seven MLS matches this season in the hopes that a temporary change in management would result in better performance.
Three months later, Covelo is still serving in an interim capacity as a result of his team’s 5 wins and 4 draws in their 12 league games.
There is still much work to be done, since the Earthquakes are only in 12th place, but they are at least still in the running for a berth in the top seven.
The Earthquakes have a game in hand, are only five points out of that spot, and are attempting to extend their three-match winning streak.
The Los Angeles Earthquakes defeated the Los Angeles Galaxy 3-2 in their most recent match, but it’s important to note that they almost let a three-goal halftime lead slip away.
From Houston’s standpoint, they enter this game after a four-match losing streak, which included three losses. The most recent of those defeats occurred earlier this week at league leaders Austin; Houston had a lead at one point before falling behind 3-1.
While Dynamo have scored in six of their previous seven MLS games, their only shutout in that span came against the struggling Chicago Fire of the Eastern Conference.
Paulo Nagamura, the team’s head coach, is aware that his job in the dugout is precarious because he has only earned six victories in his first 20 matches in charge
All things considered, neither team will benefit from a draw, thus we anticipate an entertaining game. Houston will be confident that they can win by any means necessary, but we believe the Earthquakes will add another victory to their current winning streak.
