Our prediction for this MLS match:
Philadelphia Union and San Jose Earthquakes face each other at Subaru Park in what is expected to be one of the most entertaining games of Sunday’s program. Philadelphia Union kicked off the new MLS season with a 2-0 loss to Dallas, with the team playing out a thrilling 3-3 draw with Los Angeles FC in their first away game of the season. The U are eager to record their first win in 2020, and we are positive that they will leave their hearts on the field in Sunday’s football match.
SJ Earthquakes, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 5-2 loss to Minnesota United, which is probably the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on the hosts. In their last meeting in MLS Philadelphia Union recorded a 2-1 win over San Jose Earthquakes.
This game is postponed.
