Gamethread: San Jose Earthquakes vs. Chivas USA, 4/26/14

Hello ball, my old friend. - Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Discuss the game here!

It's time for the game! Chivas USA are in the Bay Area, where they'll face the San Jose Earthquakes at Buck Shaw Stadium (7:30 pm PT, MLS Live). The Goats are coming off a 2-1 loss last week to the Seattle Sounders, while the Quakes played to a scoreless draw last time out to the Colorado Rapids.

The obvious question is whether either side will get a win tonight. Between them, they only have one league win, that being Chivas' opening day win over Chicago. We're starting to hit a stretch in the season where we are moving beyond the "early" portion, and simply waiting for wins may not be a successful policy. Still, both teams will certainly feel they have an excellent shot at three points. Hopefully that translates to a good game, too (ok, a win by Chivas either way is really the bottom line).

In case you missed it, be sure to take a gander at the match preview from this morning.

Feel free to discuss the game here. I'll be checking in from time to time, hoping the match is going in the Goats' favor, of course.

Arriba las Chivas!
