Three Points or Nothing
As we close in on the end of the regular season and prepare for the MLS playoffs, the games are getting hotter and games have become more challenging to predict. The San Jose Earthquakes are set to host Inter Miami on Wednesday in an inter-conference battle.
Both teams are on the outside of the playoff picture and need to pick up the three points. Read our preview of the teams and our predictions for the game.
Wins Sparse for Earthquakes
The San Jose Earthquakes haven’t had a convincing run since the start of the season, and they’ve been struggling since the loss against New York Red Bulls in the first match. Their last few games reflect their season as they’ve only won five games from 22 matches.
The only team with a worse stat in the Western Conference is Sporting Kansas City. With only a few games left, the team needs to find a way to improve their stats if they want to get a chance to contend for a top-seven finish.
After the win against Los Angeles Galaxy, it seemed like the team was back on track, but the last four games, including a friendly against Celta Vigo, suggest otherwise. San Jose is winless in the previous four matches.
The final game was challenging and gave us a show until the end. We got a goal and red card in additional time, which were terrible for the Earthquakes.
Inter Miami in Poor Form
Inter Miami has had a roller-coaster season, winning seven games and losing 10. Inter Miami has more points than the San Jose Earthquakes and are closer to a top-seven finish.
However, they’ve been in a terrible stitch in the last couple of games. The team has only won two games in the previous eight. They had only two draws and four losses in that span. The last match ended with both teams scoring four goals each.
It was a close tie that gave us goals from the 23rd to the 97th minute. Inter Miami scored the first and last goal, and they also won the first half. Quick succession goals in the 80th minute saw them trail at the end of the game, but Christopher McVey saved the day for Inter, and many sports bets on them, by scoring to secure a draw.
San Jose Earthquakes vs Inter Miami CF Head-to-Head
Inter Miami only joined the league in 2018 and is meeting the Earthquakes for the first time. San Jose is coming on the back of zero wins in four games while Inter Miami has zero in three. Both teams are without a clean sheet in over seven games.
