Major League Soccer 2012 Preview: San Jose Earthquakes vs Portland Timbers Predictions

Western Conference Strongmen San Jose Earthquakes meet the Portland Timbers at the Jeld-Wen Field on July 3. Catch real time updates on your favorite Major League Soccer 2012 Match.

San Jose Earthquakes Preview

SJ is currently on the top of the Western Conference list with eleven wins, three loses and three draws tallying a total of 36 points, four points ahead of Western second placers, Real Salt Lake. Winning the previous three matches in a row including a 4-3 victory against the Los Angeles Galaxy, the Earthquakes are on fire and are gearing up for their next up-coming match against Portland who are currently placed at number 8 in the Western Conference. The Earthquakes’ game against Los Angeles is now considered one of the greatest in the history of the MLS. MLS Golden Boot leader Chris Wondolowski, whose back heel goal gave the Quakes the lead during that game is one of the team’s driving players.

However, the impending threat of fatigue which can result in injuries for the players is looming. The Timbers, although faced with a tough task, might just be able to bank on this probability.

Portland Timbers Preview

Ranked at number 8 within the Western Conference and having 20 lesser points than the San Jose Earthquakes who, by the way, are currently the number 1 team in the West, Portland (W-4,L-7,T-4) definitely has a tough challenge to take on this Tuesday when they go against the San Jose Earthquakes(W-11,L-3,T-3). One advantage however falls to the Timbers’ side, the game will be played at the Jeld-Wen Field, Portland’s home turf.

The Timbers were absolutely annihilated by the Colorado Rapids during their match last June 30th but that was on the road. Home turf might be an advantage for Portland and they need to identify and exploit SJ’s weaknesses on this coming match.

"If we don't get points in this game, we're in a really bad spot," Timbers’ goalkeeper Troy Perkins said. "We've got to keep pushing and keep pressing."

San Jose Earthquakes vs Portland Timbers Predictions: 3-0

The Earthquakes have a powerful attack as was proven during their last match against the Galaxy. Unless the Portland Timbers adjust their defenses and strengthen their offense, the team does not stand a chance against the red-hot Earthquakes, home turf or not.
