SJ vs VAN Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:

Vancouver Whitecaps FC host San Jose Earthquakes in an MLS match at BC Place on Wednesday. Both these teams play in the Western Conference, hosts are at 5th while visitors are reeling at 10th in the table heading into this match.

Vancouver’s head-coach Carl Robinson made three changes in the last game against Houston Dynamo to the side which suffered a 1-0 defeat against Minnesota United. The former Wales International handed Brian Rowe his first start this season while Kei Kamara returned to the playing 11 for the first time since suffering an adductor strain. The Whitecaps fell behind twice in that game but still managed to earn a point in that 2-2 draw at home courtesy of a Kendall Waston’s 94th-minute strike.

San Jose, on the other hand, started this campaign in a worst possible way. After winning the opening game of this season, they went on a 7 game winless streak, losing five times and drawing the other two. But they snapped that pathetic run with a 1-3 win away at Minnesota United.

Earthquakes’ legendary forward Chris Wondolowski made a notable impact in that game. The 35-year came as a substitute in the 2nd half and soon set up Danny Hoesen in the 69th minute which gave his side a 2-1 lead in the game. Then seven minutes later, the American International scored from the penalty spot to take his tally to 136 goals for this club and moved within nine of Landon Donovan’s all-time record, as San Jose (2-5-2) defeated the Loons for a second time this season.
