SJ vs LAG Dream11 Prediction: Nothing but bystanders in the Western Conference, San Jose Earthquakes’ season looks to have come to an early end.
While San Jose Earthquakes were offering nothing for way too long in MLS 2020-21 to find themselves in bottom spot of the Western Conference, the nail in the side’s season was finally hammered down the last time around. Thumped 7-1 by Seattle Sounders, San Jose Earthquakes finally saw their luck run out with the side getting a result deserving of its performances this term.
The routing looks to be a defining moment, one which finally puts to bed any chances the club had of survival in the ongoing season. And the in the midst of this soup, the side is set to be decimated today as well when it takes on LA Galaxy.
On a four match winning spin, LA Galaxy have finally found their footing in the league. Revived after defeating their arch city rivals Los Angeles, the side made it two wins against Los Angeles after thumping them 3-0 the last time around to move all the way into 4th spot in the points tally.
With LA Galaxy functioning at their imperious best once again, this outing is a foregone conclusion. This will be a straightforward affair, one where LA Galaxy end up walking all over Earthquakes.

SJ vs LAG Dream11 Prediction
Daniel Vega will be inculcated in our Dream 11 side as the goal-keeper for today. The only player who has looked the least bit interested to try and bolster a failing backline, the shot stopper has shown immense valour and vigour despite coming across a barrage every tie.

Although both the defences are vulnerable to letting in goals, its LA Galaxy who are clearly likelier to keep a cleansheet in this one. Now having pulled up their socks, the side will control play today and is bound to close it out as it aspires.
The backline should protect the side’s integrity and help shun Earthquakes from scoring to see us rope in a trio from the home side. Nick DePuy, Rolf Feltscher and Emiliano Insua will be inducted into our setup from the side for the fixture.
Up against a side which was hit for 7 the last time around, LA Galaxy are going to absolutely cherish their time out on the pitch today. They themselves went onto score thrice in their foregone fixture, a side which is slowly transforming into a spitting image of the 2019-20 campaign.
We begin with the club’s leading scorer with four goals, Sebastian Lletget from LA Galaxy. A massive reason he’s piled on those goals is due to Julian Araujo who has pulled off the two assists with his passes serving the ball on a platter for Sebastian.
With one goal, Joe Corona will complete the trio of selections from the home side. San Jose Earthquakes on the other hand will see immerse in a duo, one comprising of two players who have been the fulcrum of the side’s attack.
While the club is resigned to a defeat, if these two players get going, the club can pull off the improbable. With the most goals at two, Valeri Qazaishvili and with the most assists at two, Cristian Espinoza were both going to be instant picks for us.
The attacking names from the side are wrapped up with the pick of Chris Wondolowski who has scored twice for the side. Elsewhere, with a neat four goals, striker Cristian Pavon will be ingrained in our setup from LA Galaxy.
Vega, Insua, Nick, Feltscher, Sebastian, Corona, Espinoza, Araujo, Valeri, Pavon, Chris.
