22nd minute: Goal Whitecaps. Judson runs all the way back to try and prevent Yordy Reyna’s jailbreak goal, but a bad touch means he puts it in his own net. 2-0 lead for Vancouver.
7th minute: Goal Whitecaps. Ali Adnan cuts in and scores with an angled blast to give the Canadian side the lead.
The Quakes are rolling out the exact same starting XI as the first game in Orlando:
And Vancouver are going with Yordy Reyna up top and a slew of new players this season otherwise.
The San Jose Earthquakes will look to continue their quest to qualify for the knockout stage at the MLS is Back Tournament, when they face the Vancouver Whitecaps in their second game of the group stage Wednesday evening.
The Earthquakes enter having posted a creditable 0-0 draw against the Seattle Sounders on Friday. In a game where defense reigned supreme, San Jose dictated the style of play throughout and came through with a point they were happy with. But now, the pressure is on to pick up a win to help solidify their credentials for the knockout stage.
Meanwhile, this will be Vancouver’s first game at the tournament, after rescheduling and FC Dallas exiting the competition, so they are a blank slate of sorts. They’ll be without their top three strikers, in Lucas Cavallini, Fredy Montero and Tosaint Ricketts, so scoring would seem to be a major concern, but we’ll know when the teams start playing.
According to DraftKings Sportsbook, as of Monday evening, San Jose are (-121) while Vancouver are (+280). The odds of a draw are (+290), so the bookmakers are putting San Jose as big favorites heading into the match.
Friday’s match between the Quakes and the Whitecaps will be televised nationally on TUDN and streamed on Twitter in the United States. You can watch TUDN via Fubo TV. The broadcast is scheduled to start at 6 pm PT with kickoff to follow.
