San Jose Earthquakes Preview – Will the Quakes’ unbeaten run go on?

San Jose Earthquakes have had a tough season up until now, winning just five of 19 MLS games. The club have suffered seven defeats and drawn seven of the other 14. However, San Jose have been tough to beat in recent months.

The Quakes may be languishing in the table, but they are undefeated in eight league matches. The problem is, six of those eight have ended in draws. They have won two of their last four, though, seeing off Seattle Sounders and Los Angeles. Those are their only two victories since early May.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 1040 GMT, Tuesday 17 August)

If San Jose can turn draws into wins, they could fire themselves up the Western Conference table. Can they claim a third victory in five on Wednesday?

Minnesota United Preview – Can the Loons pick up second away win?

Adrian Heath’s Minnesota United have been in fine fettle of late. Before last weekend’s narrow home loss to LA Galaxy, the Loons had won three and drawn two of their previous five.

United have struggled away from home this season, picking up just one MLS away win. However, they have also been tough to beat on their travels, losing only one of the last six. Four of those six have ended level, so Minnesota could certainly do with some more away points.
