San Jose Earthquakes to Win

Early in the season, Matias Almeyda’s men are in the play-off qualifying slots, a position they would like to finish come the end of the 2021 MLS campaign. While the host’s performances have improved, DC United cannot say the same. They failed to score against New England, adding to their worrisome record on the road. Their task has been made tougher with six players missing due to injury for the away trip.

Total Goals Over 2.5

In their first two games of the season, San Jose Earthquakes have seen over three goals in their competitive engagements. The trend extends to their club-friendly fixtures in the preceding two games. While DC failed to get on the scoreboard in their last outing, they saw the Over 2.5 being realized in their 2-1 win over New York City. With injuries and travelling taking their toll, expect goals in this Round 3 meeting.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

Matias Almeyda has seen an improvement in the Quakes attacking output but they remain contentious at the back. They conceded against the Texas-based Houston Dynamo and FC Dallas, giving DC United the blueprint to score against them. Historically, three of the last four H2H meetings have seen goals on either end and this fixture should not be any different.

San Jose Earthquakes vs DC United Fixture Preview

San Jose Earthquakes

A new season and a new beginning. Matias Almeyda’s men seem to have turned a page in the 2021 MLS campaign with their exuberant attacking displays. However, their defence continues to pose problems as they continue to concede goals at the other end of the pitch. While Almeyda addresses these issues, he will also have to ensure the progress of Cade Cowell. The 17-year-old forward got on the scoreboard after starting against FC Dallas.

DC United

The Black and Red have a tall order to improve on their last year’s 13th place finish in the Eastern Conference. A slew of away fixtures has not helped their cause, especially with injuries catching up. Hernan Losada has six players under the care of the medics as fixtures start to come in thick. However, Belgian Jupiler League import, Brendan Hines-Ike is available and will be central to United’s defensive solidity against the Quakes.
