Tip Seattle Sounders - San Jose Earthquakes

Seattle Sounders San Jose Earthquakes Prediction published on July 29, 2021 at 5:35 PM - modifiedat July 29, 2021 at 2:05 PM

Table-topper Seattle Sounders lock horns with eleventh-placed San Jose Earthquakes during their MLS Western Conference clash at the Lumen Field. The Sounders suffered only the second defeat of the season in their last outing and are expected to conjure up a reaction during the upcoming game. Manager Brian Schmetzer will be hoping his team can bounce back from the loss at the expense of the San Jose Earthquakes, who are without a win in their last 11 games.

The Sounders were up against second-placed Sporting Kansas City in their last outing and lost 3-1. Goals from Johnny Russell and Daniel Salloi helped Sporting KC race to a two-goal advantage at the half-time interval. Although Fredy Montero pulled a goal back for Sounders early on in the second half, their hopes of a comeback were extinguished by Cameron Duke, who restored the two-goal advantage for Sporting KC. The result now means that Sporting KC can replace Sounders at the summit of the table, should the former win their game in hand.

Considering how the season has panned out for the Earthquakes, the Sounders couldn’t have asked for a better opponent to try and bounce back and return to winning ways. The Earthquakes have failed to win in their last 11 games and are just one point above rock-bottom in the table. Despite that worrying trend, the Earthquakes have avoided defeat in their last four outings with four straight draws.
