In North America, meanwhile, there is plenty of Major League Soccer play to enjoy as action as the MLS is heading towards the playoffs with plenty of possibilities and points up for grabs.
The season is nearing an end, and the races are still going on in the western conference, as clubs fight for positioning. Two of the best teams in the west face off just before the playoffs, as the top seed San Jose Earthquakes host the surging Los Angeles Galaxy.
Beginning the year a disappointment, the Galaxy, last year’s league winner, have been strong in the second half of the season, stringing together wins and moving from the bottom of the table into a competitive position.
The Galaxy sit in fourth in the western conference with 15 wins and five draws, good for 50 points. They are two points back of Seattle Sounders, and five points behind Real Salt Lake in second position. The club they are all trying to catch is out of reach, as San Jose has 64 points, the most by far of anyone in the league.
San Jose has 19 wins this season, 10 of which have come at home. They will play in San Jose where they have lost just one game all season, outscoring their opponents 41-20. The Los Angeles Galaxy, meanwhile, have played well on the road, with six wins and four draws this season.
The Galaxy have had a tough schedule after four straight home matches, all victories, drawing Colorado on the road before falling to Real Salt Lake at home. They play San Jose and then host Seattle to close the season.
The two clubs met twice before this season, and San Jose won both contests in high scoring affairs. In Los Angeles they beat the Galaxy 3-2, and back in San Jose they won 4-3.
Betting lines: This looks to be another high scoring match, as both teams like to score. The problem for the Galaxy is, their defense is weaker and they are on the road. The Earthquakes are favoured and rightly so. Look for them to come out strong and beat the Galaxy putting a damper on their playoff hopes.
