Match preview

It's bottom of the west up against the east's second-worst side, with both fancying their chances of a rare victory in this Californian clash.

It would've been a meeting of MLS' bottom two, only for Chicago Fire to claim a shock victory on Wednesday night.

Federico Navarro scored the only goal as his team beat then Eastern Conference leaders Philadelphia 1-0 at Solider Field.

So, Ezra Hendrickson's side have actually won back-to-back games in Illinois, also edging out D.C. United by the same scoreline 11 days earlier.

Aside from those two wins, the Fire's last 11 outings have yielded a measly three points, losing eight of their 13 matches since 19 March.

San Jose Earthquakes meanwhile are only being kept off the foot of the overall standings by the aforementioned D.C. United.

Alex Covelo's team were last in action a week ago, easily beaten 2-0 by Real Salt Lake at Rio Tinto Stadium.

So, the Quakes are now winless in four, but all four of their victories in 2022 in all competitions have come at PayPal Park.

Which set of fans will be celebrating an illusive victory?
