East meets West as the Earthquakes take on the Fire at the Buck Shaw Stadium in Santa Clara, California on July 29. Catch real time updates on your favorite Major League Soccer 2012 Match.
San Jose Earthquakes Preview
The Earthquakes, the number 1 team in the Western Conference have a total of 22 games this season with thirteen wins, only five defeats, and four draws giving the team a total of 43 points. Strong in attack mode, the San Jose Earthquakes have a total of 44 goals, the highest of any team by far in both the Western and Eastern Conferences. Their defense is not as good as compared to a team like Sporting Kansas City but not bad either.
Their last game that was played against Vancouver Whitecaps on the 23rd of July however, did not go well ending in a 2-1 victory for the opposing team. But the biggest upset was during the match against the bottom dwellers of the West, the Portland Timbers when the Earthquakes were defeated 2-1.
Chicago Fire Preview
Eastern Conference team, Chicago Fire currently stands at number 5 with a total of 31 matches in which they have nine victories, seven losses, and four draws giving the team a total of 31 points. Their five previous matches saw two wins, two losses and one draw.
Not a team of choice when matched up with the San Jose Earthquakes. Any team from either the Western or Eastern conference with a rank below the top three are considered to be in a lower calibre when compared to the Earthquakes.
San Jose Earth Quakes vs Chicago Fire Predictions: San Jose Earthquakes 3-0
On paper, the Earthquakes are the team of choice when it comes to predicting the victor. But surprisingly, the Chicago Fire is the favourite. That’s according to the polls however. I will go with my gut instincts on this and say that the Earthquakes will shake Chicago down.
