Prediction and Preview

Vancouver Whitecaps’ two fixtures held in March both saw goals after the 70th minute, with the team to score first securing victory on both occasions. As a bonus, the Canadian outfit secured a win as a betting outsider before the hiatus, having done so only five times in 2019 – for a win rate of just 17.86% in such matches.

Vancouver have taken points from four of their last six MLS trips to the USA (W3, D1, L2), including winning their last two within that sequence. However, their round two defeat of LA Galaxy marked just a second clean sheet in their last 36 MLS matches played in the USA.

San Jose Earthquakes’ first ‘MLS is Back’ fixture snapped a run of three MLS games with over 3.5 total goals, and 27 without a 0-0 draw. But with five of the last six H2H meetings at any venue producing at least four total goals, and both teams scoring in each of the last five, the goals could be back immediately.

The expectations that come with ‘betting favourites’ status could be troublesome for the Californian outfit. They had a below-average win/draw rate of 68.75% (W9, D2, L5) in 2019.

Players to watch: With Vancouver missing three strikers, the pressure will be on Yordy Reyna, who has recorded the Whitecaps’ first goal in three of his last seven MLS starts. Meanwhile, Magnus Eriksson has recorded the Earthquakes’ final goal in two of his last four starts against Vancouver.

Stat attack: Vancouver have not taken the most corner kicks of the game in any of their last 16 regular season matches in the USA.

Vancouver have received the fewest cards in three of their last four MLS fixtures, as well as in five of their last seven against San Jose.

San Jose’s last six MLS matches have produced at least ten corner kicks, with exactly ten in three of those six.
