LA Galaxy won 2-0 last time out to make it two competitive home wins in a row, and claim their seventh win ‘to nil’ of the season (inc. USO). In fact their last five competitive games have now seen the victors win ‘to nil’ by two or more goals, although the Galaxy remain the worst Western Conference team over the last five MLS home games.
Without a draw in 11 MLS fixtures – and carrying the third-worst average total goals-per-game ratio of the entire MLS (2.53) – both teams have scored in just 42.11% of Galaxy’s 19 league features. However, they are favourites to take their 32nd California Clásico here (H2H: W31, D23, L15), and manager Guillermo Barros
Schelotto needs a response after a 3-0 defeat in the reverse.
Looking to make ground on their hosts, San Jose Earthquakes (W8, D4, L7) are six points behind Galaxy but have claimed almost double the points over the last ten MLS fixtures (SJE: 20/LAG: 12).
However, the Quakes have won just one of their last 13 MLS awaydays stretching back to August 2018 (W1, D3, L9), but have scored first in 37.5% of their eight trips this season, failing to score in just one of those road trips. Yet with just one league win here since 2012 (W1, D3, L4) San Jose face a stern challenge, but did cause an upset with a 3-0 win here in August 2017.
Players to watch: Thirteen-goal Zlatan Ibrahimović (LAG) scored a brace last time out and was dismissed in his first Clásico, whilst Chris Wondolowski’s (SJE) record against the hosts speaks for itself (W12, D7, L7 G:14).
Stat attack: Galaxy have scored in both halves in 21.05% of their MLS games.
San Jose have conceded one third of their 30 MLS goals from the 61st-75th minute.
Six of the last seven competitive H2Hs have produced over 2.5 goals.
