Our prediction for this MLS match:
Los Angeles FC will be looking to build on a thrilling 6-0 win over Vancouver Whitecaps when they take on San Jose Earthquakes in yet another home fixture. In Carlos Vela’s absence, Bradley Wright-Phillips impressed in the midweek fixture, with the veteran scoring a brace, and, no doubt, the former New York Red Bulls striker is going to make life difficult for San Jose defenders as well.
The Earthquakes have been struggling at the back of late, with the team conceding 11 goals in total in the previous two league fixtures, and is no wonder they are seen as big underdogs in Monday’s showdown. David faces Goliath at Banc of California Stadium, and anything but a routine home win would be a major surprise. The likes of Kashia, Oswaldo, Walls, and Akanyirige are all likely to miss the game with injury for the visitors.
