Saturday MLS action from Avaya Stadium, as San Jose take on Galaxy.

When Galaxy visit Avaya Stadium they will be sat in eighth place in the League. San Jose, currently 14 will face an up-hill battle to handle the visitors.

San Jose go into this game with 31 points secured

With the memory of their last match, doubtless on their minds, a (1-1) draw against FC Dallas, San Jose will be keen to improve on that result in this game.

Also, San Jose need to find a way to generate wins on a consistent basis, as they’ve recorded seven losses in their last 12 matches. With 31 points (0W, 0L and 0D), they are established in fourteenth position in the League.

When San Jose host Galaxy, they will do so on the back of six victories, six draws, and three losses on their own ground.

A victory for San Jose would put them on 34 points.

This season’s MLS campaign, has so far seen LA Galaxy achieve 40 points

Galaxy will be buoyant, following a 3-0 away win against Vancouver Whitecaps in their last fixture.

Also, a draw statistic of four in six fixtures is not all bad, but unfortunately will not bring the success Greg Vanney’s men wishes for ultimately. Their position is eighth in the League and they have 40 points, that is, 0W, 0L and 0D.

Galaxy’s away record is remarkable and poses a significant threat to San Jose. In the 15 games they’ve played on the road this season, they have so far won four meetings, drawn four matches, and lost seven fixtures.

A win in this fixture would take LA Galaxy’s points to 43 in the League.
