LA Galaxy vs San Jose Earthquakes Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

LA Galaxy slumped to yet another defeat, as they lost 2-0 against Columbus Crew. Sigi Schmid was relatively confident about a positive result, but a red card for Ashley Cole in the 18th minute changed the complexion of the game. Late goals in either half from Ola Kamara and Justin Meram dealt another blow for Galaxy. San Jose Earthquakes’ disastrous form away from home continued as the club lost 4-0 against Real Salt Lake. Luis Silva came up with the opening goal, but Anibal Godoy’s marching orders in the second half gave the home team with impetus to score three through Jefferson Savarino, Albert Rusnak, and Yura Movsisyan.

Betting Tips and Predictions

San Jose have been able to win the last two meetings with LA Galaxy, but this game is a different proposition. Even though Galaxy come into the match on the back of a poor run, circumstances have also played a huge role. San Jose’s horrendous run of form on the road is likely to help Schmid achieve his first win as the Galaxy manager. I would pick this game to end up with a Galaxy win.

Galaxy have not scored in the last three home matches, but San Jose have conceded three goals on an average in the last six away games. Even in the last six matches against this opponent, Galaxy have a reasonable 10 goals. I see plenty of value in backing LA Galaxy to score over 1.5 goals.

LA Galaxy win – 19/20

LA Galaxy to score over 1.5 goals – 4/6

 

LA Galaxy saw over 1.5 goals in 10 out of their last 10 games played

LA Galaxy Preview

Galaxy decided to sack manager Curt Onalfo after a poor run of results. Even though Schmid has been brought in to provide wealth of experience as one of the successful MLS managers, he has been unable to turn things around. Galaxy have lost four out of the last five league matches. The latest defeat against Columbus Crew saw the club slip to 9th in the table. While there is no immediate danger of Galaxy falling to the bottom of the table, the glimmer of hope with regard to play off have quickly evaporated. Romain Alessandrini is the top scorer with eight league goals.

LA Galaxy Team News

Sebastien Lletget (foot), Robbie Rogers (ankle), Baggio Husidic (leg), Jermaine Jones (toe), and Giovanni Dos Santos (hamstring) are the injury worries for LA Galaxy manager Schmid.

San Jose Earthquakes Preview

San Jose Earthquakes have been two different outfits depending on the location of the games. Chris Leitch has been able to go undefeated in the home games since his appointment towards the end of June. However, the club has had a disastrous run of results on the road under his regime. San Jose have lost six consecutive away games, while failing to score in four of those matches. Crucially, the club has conceded 21 goals in this run. Chris Wondolowski is the top scorer at the club with 10 goals in the league.

San Jose Earthquakes Team News

Marvell Wynne (heart), Mark Sherrod (meniscus), Harold Cummings (ankle), Nick Lima (thigh), Marc Pelosi (knee), Kip Colvey (knee), and Florian Jungwirth (shoulder) are the injury concerns for San Jose Earthquakes.
