LAFC don’t change their XI after their big win last time out:
San Jose bring young goalkeeper JT Marcinkowski back, and start Chris Wondolowski:
LAFC are coming off a record 6-0 win over the Vancouver Whitecaps at home on Wednesday, the black-and-gold’s best-ever win. It was a rousing victory for a team in need of one, as they have been slumping hard since the local return to play began. But believe it or not, LAFC haven’t won consecutive games in regular-season play yet this season. If ever there was a time to do it...
Their opponent, San Jose, are slumping much, much harder and haven’t won since the local return to play, still. The Earthquakes have racked up mostly lopsided losses this month and morale is sinking. Given the Quakes also have not beaten LAFC in their history, this looks like a very winnable three points for the home side but not so fast. This is MLS, and this is 2020, the team that takes a mental break or is having an off night can easily get got. LAFC look like they can get the win here, certainly, but they need to go out and actually get the win.
According to DraftKings Sportsbook, as of Saturday afternoon, LAFC are (-420) while San Jose are (+900). The odds of a draw are (+540). The bookmakers have LAFC enormous favorites again, not quite as big as against the Whitecaps midweek, but given LAFC’s unbeaten history against San Jose it makes some sense.
