ANALYST

The MLS returns to the fold with another set of matches this weekend as San Jose Earthquakes take on Los Angeles FC on Saturday. Both teams have been poor this season and have a point to prove this weekend.

Los Angeles FC are in eighth place in the MLS Western Conference standings at the moment and have not been at their best this year. The away side suffered a 2-1 defeat against Portland Timbers last week and will need to bounce back in this game.

San Jose Earthquakes, on the other hand, are in 10th place in the league table and have struggled this season. The Earthquakes edged Austin FC to a 4-3 victory in their previous game and will need a similar result from this match.
