San Jose will look to advance to the last 16

In Sunday’s match at Geodis Park, San Jose Earthquakes and Nashville SC fought hard to draw even and earn a point. But they won their following encounter, defeating LAFC 3-1, to recover.

Hany Mukhtar’s opening goal put Luchi Gonzalez’s team behind early on, but Jack Skahan’s header just after the hour mark brought them back level.

The Goonies’ dismal start to the season is summed up by the fact that they are still at the bottom of the MLS table’s Western Conference.

Oakland Roots will come into this game on the back of a 2-2 draw with San Antonio they are 10th in the USL Championship table and have won only twice and if they hope to go farther into the tournament they need to quickly start winning matches.

Kick-Off:

Timing: IST – 8 May 7:30 A.M., GMT: 2 A.M.

Location: PayPal Park

Form:

San Jose Earthquakes: W-L-L-L-L-W

Oakland Roots: D-L-W-D-L

Players to watch

San Jose: Rodrigues

The centre-back has been in excellent form for San Jose his presence added solidity at the back and provided a steal helping his side concede fewer goals this season. He will once again make an impact when San Jose plays Oakland Roots.

Oakland Roots: Miche Naider Chery

Chery hasn’t had the impact he expected this season but the forward hopefully try to get his groove back as the tournament gets underway. The striker was on the scoresheet in his previous game and will hope to continue his goalscoring streak.

Team news

Since September 2023, defender Lorenzo Dellavalle has suffered a chronic knee ailment that keeps him out of the picture for Los Angeles.

Additionally, 18-year-old David Martinez, who has missed the last three games due to a back injury, will not be playing for the away team. JT Marcinkowski of San Jose is out due to a knee ailment, and fellow American Alfredo Morales will not play this weekend due to a hip injury.

Oakland Roost seems not to have any injury reported ahead of their US Open game and will be a fully fit squad ahead of the San Jose Earthquakes game.

Predicted lineup for San Jose Earthquakes vs Oakland Roots

San Jose Earthquakes

Yarbrough; Costa, Beason, Rodrigues, Akapo; Tsakiris, Gruezo, Yueill; Espinoza, Ebobisse, Kikanovic

Oakland Roots

Syrel; Alekseev, Camier, Riley, Njie, Bracken, Matsoso, Cruz, Elmasnaouy, Reid, Chery

Match Prediction

Given their recent defensive struggles, we don’t think either team will win this game with a clean sheet. Even after the conclusion of the ninety minutes, we support a share of the spoils with honours. However, San Jose Earthquakes, who defeated LAFC 3-1, could win this match.

Prediction: San Jose Earthquakes 2-2 Oakland Roots
