LA Galaxy Preview – Can Galaxy avoid a sixth successive defeat?

LA Galaxy’s season has failed to take off. The Los Angeles outfit have won just four of 15 matches, drawing three and losing eight of the other 11. They have shipped 30 goals and scored 21 at the other end. Even more alarmingly, Galaxy are 24th in the combined table, four points above bottom club DC United.

Guillermo Barros Schelotto’s troops have been in dreadful form of late. Since beating Los Angeles (twice), San Jose and Portland Timbers in successive matches, the Carson club have taken just one point from the last 18 on offer. After drawing with San Jose in mid-September, LA Galaxy have lost each of their last five.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

Their misery was compounded last time out when they were hammered 6-3 at home by the Timbers. Can Galaxy restore some pride at Dignity Health Sports Park on Thursday?

San Jose Earthquakes Preview – Will Quakes make it 12 points from a possible 15?

Matias Almeyda’s San Jose Earthquakes have had a mixed bag of results this season. Quakes are 15th in the combined table and seventh in the Western Conference at present. They have won five, drawn five and lost seven of 17.

Last time out, San Jose’s impressive winning streak came to an end when they were beaten 3-0 by Portland Timbers. Prior to that, the Goonies had won three on the spin in MLS, seeing off Los Angeles, LA Galaxy and Vancouver Whitecaps. Before those victories, San Jose had not won since July.

Almeyda’s men will be hoping to finish the season in strong fashion. After defeat to the Timbers a few days back, can San Jose get back to winning ways with three points in California in midweek?

These two sides know each other well having already met three times this term. Galaxy won 3-2 in Carson back in August before the pair played out a goalless draw in San Jose in September. Earlier in the month, San Jose beat LA 2-1 at home, with a late Andres Rios penalty giving the hosts the points.


Key Facts – LA Galaxy vs San Jose Earthquakes Betting Tip

  • This will be the fourth meeting between Galaxy and Quakes this season
  • A couple of weeks ago, San Jose beat LA 2-1 at Earthquakes Stadium
  • LA have lost each of their last five MLS fixtures


LA Galaxy are in poor form, which San Jose will be hoping to capitalise on this Thursday. We fancy the visitors to secure a narrow victory at the Banc of California Stadium. Earthquakes are priced at 5/1 to win by one goal.
