Chivas USA Scouting Report
Chivas USA (3-3-1, 10 pts.) have lost two in a row after a 3-1-1 start to their season under first-year head coach Jose Luis Sanchez Sola. Chivas USA lost 1-0 in their last outing on April 20 against Real Salt Lake at Rio Tinto Stadium. Javier Morales scored the game winner in the 53rd minute, but both teams had their chance. Chivas USA matched RSL 14-14 in shots and 5-5 in shots on goal in the match. Young forward Juan Agudelo leads the way in scoring with a pair of goals while a trio of Chivas USA players – Edgar Mejia, Eric Avila and Jorge Villafana – are tied for the team lead with two assists apiece. Among the key players on the squad is All-Star goalkeeper Dan Kennedy, who is 3-2-1 with two shutouts during his five-year MLS career against the Earthquakes.
- All-Start defender Steven Beitashour and Honduran midfielder Marvin Chavez made their 2013 debuts in last week's 1-1 draw against the Portland Timbers at Buck Shaw Stadium. Beitashour started and played 90 minutes at right back after missing the club’s first eight games while recovering from surgery to repair a sports hernia. Meanwhile, Chavez came off the bench for Shea Salinas at right mid in the 60th minute; the speedy winger also sat out San Jose’s first eight games due to a sprained medial-collateral ligament.
- Earthquakes midfielder Rafael Baca made his 50th career start in last week's 1-1 draw against the Portland Timbers at Buck Shaw Stadium. The third-year central midfielder has started each of San Jose’s eight matches in 2013. The former Loyola Marymount standout signed with the Earthquakes on July 8, 2011 as an undrafted rookie.
