Full time: Earthquakes 3, LAFC 4 - What a crazy game. Still in shock over that one, but better a good shock than a bad one. Catch the full recap here.
97th minute: OH MY GOD! LAFC WIN! Joao Moutinho scores his debut goal at the death as LAFC take all three points!
90th minute: GOOOOOOOOOAL LAFC! Diomande scores his second equalizer of the night. This may not turn out so bad after all.
63rd minute: Wondo scores again, as he pressures Miller on a backpass and the GK struggles to play it at all. Wondo steals it and scores in the open net. Embarrassing. Quakes take the lead.
52nd minute: Goal Earthquakes. Chris Wondolowski hits a swerving chip that Miller can’t get to. Quakes tie up the match.
39th minute: SAVE! Tyler Miller with a huge stop on a Vako shot.
19th minute: GOAL LAFC! Steven Beitashour scores against his old side, off a misplayed ball by a Quakes defender, and doesn’t celebrate. Class. LAFC lead.
15th minute: GOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL LAFC! Diomande scores on an opportunistic rebound in front of goal, his second in two league matches. Tie game.
11th minute: Goal, Earthquakes. Vako makes a run between LAFC’s center backs and turns in a cross. Time for LAFC to wake up.
LAFC start Adama Diomande after he came off at the half on Wednesday with a head/neck injury, and Dejan Jakovic is back in the center of defense after his suspension against FC Dallas:
San Jose hand a debut to draft pick Kevin Partida, and the rest of the group is pretty much as you’d expect:
Both teams are in not-amazing form at the moment, but even with LAFC’s wobbles, they’re doing better than their counterparts, who have lost four straight across all competitions and have only won two games all season, both over Minnesota United. LAFC are winless in the league in four, but they won midweek in the U.S. Open Cup and have at least picked up a couple draws in regular season play recently.
Can LAFC get the better of the Quakes? No game in MLS is easy, but this is about as good a draw as a team missing several key players due to the World Cup can ask for on the road. San Jose will be motivated, to be sure, but LAFC have to like their chances of picking up a win.
