SJ vs HD Dream11 Match Preview, Team News, Lineups

San Jose have a big opportunity to break into the playoff positions in the Western Conference when they host Houston Dynamo in the Major Soccer League regular season at Avaya Stadium.

Regular season so far:

  • Having started the regular season with four consecutive losses, head coach Matías Almeyda soon found himself under immense pressure to turn his team's fortunes around.
  • But a return of five wins in the next 11 league games, has brought the team well and truly in contention for the playoffs.
  • As things stand, San Jose Earthquakes are sitting at 8th in the West, having played a game less than the teams surrounding them, and only one point adrift of Real Salt Lake in 7th.

  • After missing out on the postseason last year, Houston Dynamo have certainly made progress as far as their consistency is concerned.
  • The visitors are 5th in the West, and could move above Seattle Saunders in 3rd with a win against San Jose.
  • The point worth noting is that they have played just 14 matches, while the teams sitting above them have played a minimum 16 games.

Match Details:

The Major League Soccer match will be played between San Jose and Houston Dynamo at Avaya Stadium, in San Jose, California, United States. The ground has a capacity of 18,000.

The game will start at 08:00 AM (IST), on Thursday, June 27.
