Our prediction for this MLS match:
Buoyed by a thrilling 6-3 win over Los Angeles Galaxy, Portland Timbers will be looking to extend their winning run to five games when they take on San Jose Earthquakes on Monday. Portland have been in a splendid form of late, and it is no surprise they are seen as hot favourites to win the Providence Park clash. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Chilean forward Mora Aliaga, who scored a brace in the midweek clash.
The likes of Duvall, Bodily, Blanco, and Asprilla are all sidelined through injury for the hosts. San Jose, on the other hand, proved their worth in a 3-0 win over Vancouver Whitecaps, with the team retaining their spot in top eight. However, given their anything but good away record, we are tempted to put our money on the high-flying hosts. In their last meeting in MLS Portland crushed San Jose 6-1.
