This could be an interesting match as SJ Earthquakes have their presumed home advantage while Seattle Sounders are ahead 7 points in the Major League Soccer table.
These are busy days for the home team, as they were in action only four days ago in the Major League Soccer. At least it's nice to return home after that away game at LA Galaxy.
SJ Earthquakes form and stats
SJ Earthquakes, who have the most conceded goals (43) in Major League Soccer, have played 8 Major League Soccer games at their own stadium so far this season, resulting in 2-4-2 (wins-draws-losses). The opportunity of a proper winning streak is there for the hosts, with two straight wins here.
A good away victory last time out for Earthquakes, who won 4-0 against LA Galaxy (placed 12th). Prior to that was the away defeat visiting Portland Timbers (0-3).
As mentioned above, Earthquakes "killed" LA Galaxy in their previous game. They need to reset completely for this one and beware of complacency.
The Earthquakes fans have had their share of opportunities to cheer home goals this season, having seen 12 goals in 8 league matches. It's worth mentioning that 6 of these goals has been scored in their last three home matches. SJ Earthquakes are struggling defensively, conceding on average more than two goals per home game (16 from 8 played).
Seattle Sounders form and stats
The story so far for the visiting team, who have the the best goal difference (+18) in Major League Soccer, on their Major League Soccer travels is 2 wins, 1 draw and 3 defeats.
It might be tough going out on the road again for Seattle Sounders, facing their second straight away game. Especially as the previous game, ended with a defeat 1-3 versus Los Angeles FC (placed 4th). That result followed a home victory 2-1 versus Real Salt Lake.
The travelling fans enjoy Sounders's attacking play in away games, having scored 10 goals in 6 league matches away. In the opposite end, Sounders have conceded 9 goals in their away games. It's worth mentioning that 5 of these goals has been conceded in their last 3 away matches.
Head 2 HeadThis is the result when the teams met earlier this season; Seattle Sounders - Earthquakes 7-1. Head-to-head totals (for the last ten meetings): SJ Earthquakes won one game, four matches ended with a draw and Seattle Sounders has five wins. Over 2,5 goals / under 2,5 goals: six / four
