How to Watch LAFC vs. San Jose Earthquakes: Lineups, odds, game thread

Is this the game where San Jose can spring a surprise?

MLS: San Jose Earthquakes at Los Angeles FC Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Lineups:

The Quakes bring in JT Marcinkowski in goal again, and Chris Wondolowski starts:

LAFC play the same lineup they used midweek:


The San Jose Earthquakes return to the field looking for an elusive win, as they play one of their trickiest opponents in LAFC on Sunday night at Banc of California Field in Los Angeles.

You probably don’t need to be reminded, but San Jose are struggling, most recently posting a 5-0 loss on the road against the Colorado Rapids on Wednesday that is not even their worst loss this month. The Quakes can’t buy a win here, and with 10 games to go it looks like this season could spin out of control even further.

However, if you want a dose of hope — LAFC have not had back-to-back wins in the MLS regular season yet in 2020, and they’ve lost five of their last eight games since the local return to play. Yes, that’s three more wins than the Quakes have racked up, and yes, LAFC beat San Jose pretty handily a few weeks back. But LAFC haven’t been the juggernaut they were last year, so if the Earthquakes can have a good night and play at their best level, and LAFC have an off night...anything could happen, right?

Odds:

According to DraftKings Sportsbook, as of Saturday afternoon, San Jose are (+1000) while LAFC are (-480). The odds of a draw are (+575), so the bookmaker is making the Quakes enormous underdogs on the road, and given the track record here, it’s pretty fair.

How to Watch:

Sunday’s match between the Quakes and LAFC 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.
