Saint Paul, USA
Minnesota United need to end their poor form as quickly as possible. The team have seen their form hit rock bottom in the last 5 league games. They are only 2 points away from the playoff spot and qualifying for the Playoffs will be a huge achievement for this side, but first they need to get to the root of their bad form. Their next opponents are the San Jose Earthquakes, who are also not in good shape.
San Jose Earthquakes are coming off a draw against Nashville SC. The game was tight and both sides had to settle for a goal each.

San Jose Earthquakes

Analysis and Predictions
There's no big difference between these two sides and I don't expect to see any on the pitch. Minnesota United have lost back-to-back games at home and San Jose Earthquakes have failed to win in their last 3 away games, which makes this a close call for either side. I expect a close game between the two, possibly ending in a draw at full time. And they should be less goals with these two clubs playing against each other.
