Our prediction for this MLS match:
Avaya Stadium will host Sunday’s football game between San Jose Earthquakes and Minnesota United. San Jose have been performing above expectations at the MLS is back tournament, with the team scoring goals for fun. The Earthquakes rolled over Real Salt Lake in the last 16, and it is no wonder they are seen as favourites to win the Avaya Stadium clash. A man to watch in the home team will be Christian Espinoza, who has found his goal-scoring touch of late.
The Loons, on the other hand, defeated Columbus Crew on penalties to set up a meeting with San Jose in the quarter-finals. Minnesota United’s display in the triumph over Columbus was anything but brilliant, and given San Jose’s attacking potential, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the nominal hosts this time out.
