Match preview

It's time for the 94th California Clásico, with San Jose Earthquakes and LA Galaxy set to lock horns once again.

The Quakes have actually dominated this fixture in recent seasons but, right now, find themselves rock bottom of the Western Conference.

Alex Covelo's side were beaten 2-0 at Rio Tinto Stadium by Real Salt Lake last weekend, meaning they're now winless in four.

But, what better way to spark their season into life than a derby day victory over your biggest rivals?

LA Galaxy will be hoping for something similar, after an embarrassing home defeat on Tuesday night.

In mid-week, the Galaxy's U.S. Open Cup hopes went up in flames, beaten 2-1 by USLC club Sacramento Republic at home.

Back in MLS, Greg Vanney's team sit fifth in the west, following a last-gasp 1-1 draw with Portland Timbers in Carson a week ago.

Dejan Joveljić heading home a late equaliser, coming off the bench to score in successive matches, the first LA player to do that for 13 years.

In all, the Galaxy have only won one of their last five, only beating Austin FC (twice) since 23 April.

Who will claim three points and Californian bragging rights at PayPal Park?
