San Jose Earthquakes vs Real Salt Lake Match Preview
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. 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.
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. 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.
Real Salt Lake have seen similar records home and away, which could feel worrying ahead of the trip to San Jose. They’ve jumped the rivals with a narrow 1-0 win over Columbus Crew midway through the week, where a single goal from Sam Johnson proved enough for the points, but could need more to cause an upset now.
Claret and Cobalt have snatched just two wins in ten league trips this term and six losses and two draws along the way, including a 1-1 draw at troubled Chicago Fire two weeks ago – where they conceded an early opener and only bounced to earn a point through an equalizer from the spot.
We do feel San Jose Earthquakes now have what it takes to capitalize on the rivals’ away woes and we’ll back them to important points here, as they keep up their great records with a win priced at 3/4 with Unibet. They’ve been rock-solid here and building on it will be essential for their ambitions.
However, we don’t see them doing so without conceding and with that in mind, we’re also going for a high-scoring contest with Over 2.5 Goals FT at 1/2 with MansionBet – which has been rated a banker bet by many in the know already.
