San Jose Earthquakes team news and form: Marcinkowski out

JT Marcinkowski is out with a nasty injury, but coach Luchi Gonzalez will be able to count on his starting shot-stopper for this game. Daniel is fit and ready for action, but does he have the quality to disprove our San Jose Earthquakes vs Seattle Sounders predictions wrong?

Predicted lineup: Daniel (GK), Costa, Rodrigues, Wilson, Marie, Yueill, Gruezo, Pellegrino, Ebobisse, Espinoza & Judd

Seattle Sounders team news and form: Lackluster Sounders need to do better

Coach Brian Schmetzer’s boys have been a bitter disappointment so far this season. After three matches played, they managed to share the spoils twice and record one loss. That’s definitely not the sort of display that the fans were hoping for at the start of the campaign.

Predicted lineup: Thomas (GK), Roldan, Ragen, Arreaga, Tolo, Roldan, Vargas, Musovski, Chu, Morris & Ruidiaz

Player to watch: Cristian Espinoza

It’s puzzling to see Espinoza’s goal tally in 2024 have a big disappointing zero on it. However, that is the case and Cristian will have to show us something else if he wants to score his first Major League Soccer goal this season and prove our San Jose Earthquakes vs Seattle Sounders predictions wrong.

Gonzalez needs to see more from Espinoza

The 2023 MLS campaign was Espinoza’s best thus far. He scored 13 goals and supplied teammates with eight assists, thus taking part in 21 league goals! He surely has the quality to perform better this season, and we can’t wait to see what he will come up with on the 24th.
