LA Galaxy

The Galaxy ride into this Friday’s contest sporting an 11-1-7 record that ranks them 2nd overall in the MLS. Right now the club is sitting on 34 points on the year, which places them 9-points behind the conference leading LAFC. With this in mind, it’s clear that LA Galaxy could use a lengthy win streak to challenge LAFC. Nevertheless, the team is at least happy to be in the running for a great postseason berth. Coming off a 2-0 win over Toronto FC, LA Galaxy should be able to pick up this win over San Jose. The online soccer betting odds seem all but certain of this.

Players to Watch: Zlatan Ibrahimovic (15 GP, 13 G, 3 A), Daniel Steres (19 GP, 3 G, 0 A), and Uriel Antuna (16 GP, 2 G, 2 A).

San Jose Earthquakes

Following their win over Real Salt Lake, San Jose steps into this matchup sporting an 8-4-7 record that ranks them 6th overall in the Western Conference. The club has reached this ranking thanks to the 28 points they’ve racked up this season. And since the last time San Jose faced LA Galaxy they managed to deliver a 3-0 win over Los Angeles, it’s safe to say the club is feeling pretty good about their chances here. The odds might not give them much of a shot on the road but that’s still not enough to rule out San Jose.

Players to Watch: Chris Wondolowski (18 GP, 8 G, 0 A), Shea Salinas (15 GP, 5 G, 3 A), and Valeri Qazaishvili (17 GP, 4 G, 2 A).
