Orlando City will be aiming to extend their winning run in MLS to four games when they take on San Jose Earthquakes at their Orlando City Stadium. San Jose Earthquakes, on the other hand, are on a four-game winless run in the Major League Soccer, but they have been showing signs of improvement of late. Following back-to-back defeats to the likes of Sporting Kansas City and New York City, San Jose shared the spoils with the likes of Philadelphia Union and Houston Dynamo in previous two league fixtures and we predict that they are going to extend their unbeaten run in the league. Dom Dwyer, who has already netted four goals in the league so far this term, will be the man to watch in the home team and the opposition defenders should have him at bay. The Lions have been scoring goals for fun in MLS of late and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against San Jose Earthquakes.

But thats what the Lions will be doing and, regardless of the travel, they expect to show up at the stadium ready to play and leave with three points. The Lions did, at least, charter a plane to California, and will fly back immediately after the match, but its still not easy for any team to jump on a plane, fly across the country, and play a soccer match a day and a half later. Just as they did in Toronto and Houston earlier this month, the Lions face a tough task when heading to San Jose.

With just a week off after a run of three games in eight days, Orlando kicked off its second crowded fixture schedule this time a span of three games in nine days over the weekend with a 2-2 draw at home against Sporting Kansas City. Cyle Larin scored his seventh goal of the season, breaking a three-game scoreless streak, while Kak also added a goal, his third of the season since returning from a hamstring injury four games ago, but it wasnt enough to hold off Kansas City, which scored late in the second half to level and leave town with a well-deserved point in hand. It was the first non-win at Orlando City Stadium in six games this season.

2 was retired by the New York Yankees, to leave out a very large handful of things that also happened. A lot has happened since the last time that Orlando City last took the field: Katy Perry announced her next album and a tour stop in Orlando; the president did something that made a lot of people upset; the NWSLs non-allocated players formed a players union; and Derek Jeters No.

All-Time Series

All-time, neither team has been able to gain an edge between the two clubs: Orlando City traveled to Levis Stadium in Santa Clara in 2015 and played the Earthquakes to a 1-1 draw, despite being down a man for more than half the match due to Brek Sheas red card. And just last season, the Quakes came to Orlando and Camping World Stadium and finished 2-2 on a very late equalizing goal from San Jose.

The Dutch footballer, who was born on January 15, 1991 in Heerlen, Limburg will play for the MLS outfit (on loan) in the 2017 season. In 2012 the 186-cm tall attacker signed a deal with Ajax and he scored seven goals in 32 league appearances for the Amstedammers from 2012 to 2014. In 2014 he joined fellow Eredivisie outfit Groningen and during the 2016/2017 season he was on San Jose Earthquakes radar.

The construction of the stadium cost no less than $100 million and the venue was opened in March, 2015. The clubs home colors are blue and black, whilst the Quakes wear white and red shirts and white shorts when playing on the travels. Avaya Stadium is the home ground of San Jose Earthquakes and the capacity of the venue is 18.000. Two years later the Quakes managed to repeat the success, with the team beating Chicago Fire in the 2003 MLS Cup final.

Highlighted Player (Anibal Godoy):

This match-up has the potential to deliver a couple of fun moments. The Argentine midfielder logged over 2,000 minutes for the Quakes from 2014 to 2016, but even though he was marked as a Designated Player with tons of potential, he never quite found his place in San Jose, thus was sent to Orlando City in exchange for Darwin Cern, another former Lion who was among the big-time fan favorites since he joined the team during its USL days in 2014. For starters, itll be Matias Perez Garcias first trip back to San Jose since he was traded to Orlando last season.

What a difference a week can make after flying high with back-to-back victories, the San Jose Earthquakes were crushed in Colorado, a 3-0 trouncing that likely has them ready to return to the Bay after road dates in four of their last five. Though they remain undefeated following the draw, the luster shines a little less brightly on Orlando City Stadium. Orlando City SC, meanwhile, dropped home points for the first time this year, tying Sporting Kansas City 2-2 on Saturday.
