Our Prediction:

Real Salt Lake will win

Real Salt Lake – San Jose Earthquakes Match Prediction | 12-09-2019 21:30

The Royals are a real force to be reckoned with at home, with the team recording three wins in previous four home fixtures in the Major League Soccer. Real Salt Lake are on the right track to book their place in the play-offs, but they will have to be at their sharpest in the remainder of the season if they are to turn their dream into reality. Real Salt Lake play host to San Jose Earthquakes at their Rio Tinto Stadium on Thursday morning.

The gulf between San Joses home form and Real Salt Lakes away form is too hard to ignore, and we see no other result than a home win here, and with how effective the Earthquakes have been in front of goal, we expect San Jose to cover the -1 goal Handicap in this one. We certainly expect a goalfest here, so were going with a 3-1 home win.

Anyhow, seeing that the Earthquakes produce much better displays at home than on the travels, we predict that they are going to grab something from Sundays clash. The Royals are determined to book their place in the play-offs, but given San Joses fine home record, the visitors would be happy with one point from the Avaya Stadium clash. The two teams seem to be evenly matched at the moment, therefore, there is a big value in betting on draw.

San Jose Earthquakes

The Quakes are on a three-game losing run on the road in the MLS, with the team conceding eight goals in total in those encounters. San Jose Earthquakes, on the other hand, are a team with two faces as they look sharp at home ground, whilst struggling on the travels. Seeing that the Royals have turned their Rio Tinto Stadium into a real fortress, we predict that the Quakes are going to return home empty-handed.

High-scoring wins over Sacramento Republic (4-3 in US Open Cup), Houston Dynamo (2-0), and LA Galaxy (3-0) surely prove to the point and should have them very confident again. Quakes have struggled to keep it up on the road but their home records have been near-perfect since April, where they bagged seven wins and a draw in last eight outings.

Sundays football game at Avaya Stadium pits together San Jose Earthquakes and Real Salt Lake, the two teams who are almost level on points in their respective tables. San Jose are eyeing their fourth consecutive win at home in all competitions, but it has to be noted that they will be without Nick Lima against Real Salt Lake as the 24-year-old defender is on international duty with USA.

They now host Real Salt Lake hoping to retake the 7th spot with another solid home performance and we do see them making it happen. San Jose Earthquakes have based their top 7 chase in Western Conference mainly on points earned at Avaya Stadium and seeing them drop points at Minnesota United (3-1) midway through the week was nothing strange really.
