The last three meetings of these two have featured 15 goals.
In just their second-ever season, Austin FC are amongst the front-runners to lift MLS Cup on 5 November.
Last weekend, the Verde and Black got back to winning ways, overcoming Sporting Kansas City 2-0 at Children’s Mercy Park.
Alex Ring, thanks to some rather generous goalkeeping, breaking the deadlock, before Sebastián Driussi’s cool finish secured the points.
This means the Verde and Black have now won five of their last seven, only losing to RBNY since the end of May.
As a result, Josh Wolff’s men remain second in the Western Conference, four points below overall leaders LAFC.
San Jose Earthquakes meanwhile are in danger of seeing their play-off hopes end considerably before decision day.
Alex Covelo’s side were held to a 2-2 draw by Real Salt Lake last weekend, conceding a 95th minute equaliser.
Then, on Wednesday, Inter Miami left PayPal Park with a surprise 1-0 victory.
All of this means the Quakes remain second bottom of the west, nine points below the play-off line with 11 games remaining.
Everything points towards a home win at Q2 Stadium.
