Two sides who are looking to book their spot in the quarter-final of this year’s US Open Cup, Los Angeles FC will host San Jose in the early hours of Friday.
Starting with the hosts, continuing on what has become a stellar start to the year, Los Angeles FC have their sights set on silverware this campaign. In their 16 MLS matches this season, they have recorded 11 wins, four draws and just one defeat, scoring 39 and conceding 13 in return. With a points tally of 37, they sit nine points clear at the top of the Western Conference and also hold the best-attacking stats in the division. As for their recent run of results, despite recording just one clean sheet in their last four appearances, they are enjoying a three-match winning run and have scored three or more goals in each of those victories.
As for the visitors, enjoying a bright run of form, San Jose are looking to mount a play-off charge in the Western Conference. In their 15 matches this season, they have recorded five wins, four draws and six defeats, scoring 23 and conceding 27 in return. While only their goal difference sees them sat outside of the top-seven, the Earthquakes do hold the second worst defensive record in the division. As for their recent run of results, San Jose are unbeaten in their last five matches across all competitions, scoring two or more goals in four of those contests. While we do expect LAFC to come away with the victory on Friday, we would not be surprised to see San Jose come away with a consolation goal.
