Orlando City at San Jose Match Preview
The Earthquakes have gotten off to a solid start on the season and they are unbeaten in their last 4 matches. They sit in 4th place in the Western Conference 4 games back of FC Dallas.
Orlando City is playing in their first season in the MLS and they got off to a good start before going 4 matches with 3 losses. However, in their last match they shocked the defending champion L.A. Galaxy. Orlando made some history in their recent 4-0 win over the Galaxy, as it was the largest victory for an expansion team over the defending champion.
While the Earthquakes have been solid on the defensive side of the pitch this season giving up 11 goals in 11 matches their offense has been less than stellar. Their last match was the first in their last 7 when they scored multiple goals.
San Jose has 2 clean sheets in their last 3 matches.
Chris Wondolowski has scored 2 goals in his last 2 matches and he is only 1 behind the league leaders in goals scored. He has half of the Earthquakes goals this season and they Orlando City defense will have to key on him.
Cyle Larin leads Orlando City with 4 goals on the season and the L.A. win saw Kaka score for the first time since April 12th. These 2 players have combined for 8 goals on the season and their attack will be key in this non-conference match. Kaka also has to play well in the midfield both on the attack and on defense.
Orlando City won 2 of their first 3 road matches of the season, but they have lost their last 2 away from the sunshine state where they have given up 5 goals and only scored 1.
San Jose has only 1 loss at home this season and their last match at home was the first since April 12th.
Free Soccer Pick
Orlando City has to be confident after beating the MLS Cup holders in their last match, but on the road and facing the San Jose defense the result will be much different. This will be a low scoring match that the Earthquakes will win.
