Team News: San Jose Earthquakes
In an otherwise healthy squad, there’s only the one fitness issue for the San Jose Earthquakes manager Matías Almeyda to be concerned about. Danny Hoesen (Torn Muscle) misses out for this game.
We envisage that Portland Timbers are likely to get a lot of shots on goal and make them count.
In contrast, San Jose Earthquakes might well find it a difficult task to make a breakthrough but we do think that it’s more than likely that they will be being dangerous at times, too.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a pretty comfortable 3-1 winning margin for Portland Timbers come full-time.
