San Jose bring back Florian Jungwirth for Oswaldo Alanís, otherwise it’s as you were.

LA make some changes, with Yony Gonzalez starting in attack and Jonathan Klinsmann in goal, both for the first time with the Galaxy.
The Quakes are coming off a 3-0 loss Sunday against the Portland Timbers, which snapped their three-game winning streak and provided a bit of a heat check on San Jose’s progress. The test now will be to see if they can bounce back quickly and not go on another long winless run again.
The Galaxy are more desperate for a win, having lost five in a row. They didn’t play at the weekend, as their game against the Colorado Rapids was postponed because of the Rapids’ coronavirus outbreak. So maybe a few more days will give them more time to prepare well and get a win. They have beaten the Quakes this year, but the teams are 1-1-1 against each other so far with the positive trend going in San Jose’s direction.
But this game is a new matter. Can the Quakes get back in the win column? Will LA have the last laugh? Should be a good one.
According to DraftKings Sportsbook, as of Wednesday afternoon, San Jose are (+310) while LA are (-130). The odds of a draw are (+300), so the bookmaker again has the Earthquakes big underdogs. They got it right last time around, but we’ll see if the line is accurate in the end.
How to Watch:
Wednesday’s match between the Quakes and Galaxy will be televised locally on NBC Sports California, and in the rest of the United States on ESPN+. The broadcast is scheduled to start at 7:30 pm PT with kickoff to follow.
