DC United vs San Jose Earthquakes Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

DC United were the architect of their own downfall, as the team fell to a 3-0 loss against Chicago Fire. Ian Harkes put the ball into his own net in the 22nd minute from a long throw in, while Brandon Vincent doubled the advantage in the 62nd minute. Chicago added a late third through a penalty from Nemanja Nikolic. San Jose managed a narrow 1-0 win over Houston Dynamo to stay in the top six. Danny Hoesen provided the game with the breakthrough in the 33rd minute, and San Jose were able to keep Houston Dynamo at bay quite comfortably. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

San Jose come into the game with a disastrous away form for much of the Leitch era. I have seen some decent performances from DC United in recent matches. Even though the team lost against Chicago Fire, their overall performances coupled with San Jose’s disastrous away form is a reason to expect this game to end up as a home win. I would go with a victory for DC United.

San Jose have netted only 10 goals in the away matches and three of those came in the game against LA Galaxy. DC United are the lowest scorers in the division, and the team has scored just four goals in the last five games. I would go with this game producing under 2.5 goals.

DC United Preview

The back-to-back losses have come at a bad time for DC United, as the club were realistically thinking about the possibility of getting away from the bottom of the table. Philadelphia Union seemed a likely contender to take over this position, but they have been able to pull away by two points in the last two matches. DC United have been rooted to the bottom of the table for most of the campaign, and the club have their inept forwards to blame for much of this troubles. The club has scored just 23 goals – the lowest in the 2017 MLS campaign – so far. Luciano Acosta is the club’s top scorer with just five goals.

DC United Team News

Patrick Nyarko (eye), Robert Vincent (meniscus), Taylor Kemp (hip), and Chris Rolfe (concussion) are the players unavailable for DC United.

San Jose Earthquakes Preview

The victory over Houston Dynamo was extremely crucial as it kept San Jose in the top six with five matches left in the season. The club have been going through a highly inconsistent spell since the arrival of Chris Leitch as the new manager. This inconsistent spell has largely been down to a disastrous away form under the regime of Leitch. San Jose have lost seven out of the recent eight away games. San Jose will be relieved that the club has to negotiate only two away games in the remaining five matches. Chris Wondolowski leads the goalscoring charts at San Jose with 11 league goals.

San Jose Earthquakes Team News

Marvell Wynne (heart), Mark Sherrod (meniscus), Harold Cummings (ankle), and Marc Pelosi (knee) are the players unavailable due to injuries.
