Separated by just a single point, the San Jose Earthquakes return home to take on Seattle Sounders FC in a key match in the Western Conference standings. The Earthquakes haven’t lost in four games, last playing to a 2-2 draw with the LA Galaxy, while Sounders FC won for the second consecutive week, defeating the Colorado Rapids 2-1.
The Quakes are coming off a 2-2 draw on the road against the Los Angeles Galaxy. San Jose joined the New England Revolution as the only teams to score multiple goals on the Western Conference leaders in 2010. Bobby Convey has rejoined the team after playing 45 minutes for the MLS All-Stars against Manchester United Wednesday night in Houston.
Sounders FC are one of the hottest teams in the league, winning three of their last four matches against MLS opponents.
