Minnesota United vs San Jose Earthquakes, Thursday’s match for the Major League Soccer at the Allianz Field in Minnesota.
Minnesota United are aiming to continue this positive phase following a 7-1 win over Cincinnati when they host San Jose Earthquakes on Thursday. The Loons are in good shape right now, in the last three games they have scored fourteen and conceded five, and now they have three consecutive wins.
Minnesota playing in their home should be considered the favourite to win the three points, but it is noted that against this opponent, they have always felt many difficulties and statistics do not cheat. Five of the last six meetings were lost to San Jose. The team currently has twenty-four points (seven wins, three draws and seven losses) and is sixth in the Western Conference.
To face the San Jose Earthquakes, this formation does not count on Romain Metanire, while Colin Martin is injured.
San Jose Earthquakes
San Jose Earthquakes have beaten the Houston Dynamo and the LA Galaxy, but it’s worth noting that this away-from-home team has had poor records in the past thirteen away games, only to have won one. Since their campaign as a visitor has not been so good, it makes their participation compromised and therefore can not improve ranking.
San Jose Earthquakes now has twenty-five points (seven wins, four draws and six losses), ranking fifth in the Western Conference. However, San Jose aims to achieve the best position possible, but its shape has complicated things. For the Minnesota meeting, Harold Cummings is expected to return as Jamaica eliminated the Panama team in the Gold Cup.
The San Jose Earthquakes have presented great difficulties when playing as a visitor, and so my guess is in the win of the host team.
