San Jose Earthquakes

Since a losing effort in their last game against Houston Dynamo in MLS competition, San Jose Earthquakes and their fans will hope to get a better result this time. The stats don’t lie, and San Jose Earthquakes have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, seeing opposing sides hit 9 goals overall. In defence, San Jose Earthquakes have some weaknesses to address.

Verdict:

It certainly seems that San Jose Earthquakes will have a difficult task to break down a Portland Timbers team who look set to boss most aspects of this game if it turns out as we expect. We’re therefore predicting a convincing 3-0 margin for Portland Timbers by the conclusion of the match.
