San Jose Earthquakes take on Los Angeles Galaxy this weekend

The MLS returns to the fold with another set of matches this weekend as San Jose Earthquakes take on Los Angeles Galaxy in an important clash at the Stanford Stadium on Saturday.

San Jose Earthquakes vs Los Angeles Galaxy Preview

Los Angeles Galaxy are currently in seventh place in the MLS Western Conference standings and have improved after a slow start to their campaign. The away side thrashed Colorado Rapids by a 4-1 scoreline last week and will look to achieve a similar result in this fixture.

San Jose Earthquakes, on the other hand, are rooted to the bottom of the league table at the moment and have struggled so far this year. The Earthquakes played out a 1-1 draw against FC Dallas in their previous game and will need to take it up a notch to secure all three points this weekend.

Los Angeles Galaxy have grown in stature over the past year but will need to work on their consistency in the coming months. The likes of Javier Hernandez and Riqui Puig have shown flashes of their brilliance over the past week and have a point to prove in this match.

San Jose Earthquakes can pack a punch on their day and have been a robust outfit in their own backyard. Both teams are on an even footing at the moment and could play out a draw this weekend.
