Los Angeles FC and the San Jose Earthquakes will lock horns with each other in Major League Soccer this weekend. The game between Steve Cherundolo’s side and Luchi Gonzalez’s team will be held at the BMO Stadium and is scheduled to kick off at 3:30 am UK time on Sunday.

Los Angeles FC

Los Angeles FC are doing extremely well in Major League Soccer at the moment. The Black and Gold Falcons finished as high as third in the Major League Soccer Western Conference table last season and could do even better this time around.

Steve Cherundolo’s side are second in the Major League Soccer Western Conference table at the moment with 34 points from 18 matches. Los Angeles FC are only three points behind leaders Real Salt Lake, who have played 19 games. There is a very good chance that the LA-based club could win the Western Conference title.

Los Angeles FC will head into the Major League Soccer match against the San Jose Earthquakes this weekend on the back of a 1-1 draw with Austin FC away from home in the league. It came after a 3-1 victory over Irland City on the road in Major League Soccer which followed a 1-0 win against FC Dallas in front of their fans in MLS.

Team News:

Los Angeles FC are likely to line up in a 4-3-3 formation. Hugo Lloris will be in goal and will have Sergi Palencia, Aaron Long, Eddie Segura and Omar Campos in front of him in defence. Timothy Tillman, Eduard Atuesta and Erik Dueñas will be the three midfielders. Nathan Ordaz, Mateusz Bogusz and Dénis Bouanga will be the three forwards.

San Jose Earthquakes

The San Jose Earthquakes are one of the biggest and most-well clubs in Major League Soccer, but they have not been at their best for a while. The Goonies ended up as low as ninth in the Major League Soccer Western Conference table last season, and things could get even worse this time around.

Luchi Gonzalez’s side are at the bottom of the Major League Soccer Western Conference table at the moment. They have picked up just 11 points from their 18 games so far this season. The San Jose Earthquakes are three points behind 13th-placed Sporting Kansas City.

The San Jose Earthquakes will head into the Major League Soccer game against Los Angeles FC this weekend on the back of a 2-1 defeat at the hands of the Portland Timbers in the league. It came after a 4-2 loss to FC Cincinnati at home in MLS which followed a 5-1 hammering at the hands of New York City FC on the road in the league. 

Team News:

The San Jose Earthquakes are likely to line up in a 4-4-2 formation against Los Angeles FC. Jacob Jackson will be in goal for the visiting team. Carlos Akapo, Daniel Munie, Tanner Beason and Vítor Costa will be in front of him in defence. Cristian Espinoza, Niko Tsakiris, Jackson Yueill and Amahl Pellegrino will be deployed in midfield. Cristian Espinoza and Hernan Lopez will lead the line for the Earthquakes.
