Odds: 1/1 @ 888sport
In a contest that famously produces lively outcomes, the San Jose Earthquakes will host Portland Timbers from behind closed doors in the early hours of Thursday morning.
Starting with the hosts, continuing on what has been nothing short of a woeful run of form since returning from the enforced break, San Jose already find themselves battling it out at the foot of the Western Conference. In their opening 10 regular-season contests this year, they have recorded just two wins, four draws and four defeats, scoring 15 and conceding a staggering 26 in return. Along with collecting just 10 points out of a possible 30 and already sat down in 11th, it should also be noted that San Jose hold the worst-defensive record in the division. As for their recent run of results, Thursday’s hosts have failed to win any of their six matchups across all formats since returning to action, collecting just two points. More worrying, along with a 7-1 defeat on their winless run, each of their previous four defeats have seen over 4.5 goals by the final whistle.
As for the visitors, also really struggling to find their feet over the past month, Portland have only continued to freefall down the Western Conference. In their opening 10 regular-season matchups this year, they have recorded four wins, two draws and four defeats, scoring 18 and conceding 22 in return. Collecting a points tally of 14 out of a possible 30, the Greens open the midweek fixtures sat in sixth and with just their goal difference keeping them inside the play-off places. As for their recent run of results, Portland have managed to win just one of their last five matchups since making a return to Western Conference duties and they have shipped over 2.5 goals in all bar one of those five appearances. With the last three meetings between the two sides producing 11 goals, we’re backing another lively contest on Thursday.
