With both sides struggling early in the season, the 'Quakes and Chivas USA will get a chance to right the ship against one another.
The Earthquakes are still winless on the season, with Chivas USA's only win of the season came on opening night, with the team having gone six games without a victory.
A loss to the Seattle Sounders last time out left Chivas floundering in seventh place in the Western Conference and still trying to find a way to get more support for MLS' leading scorer Erick Torres, who netted his sixth of the year from the spot against Seattle.
For San Jose, a draw with Colorado last time out kept the team without a win and rooted to the bottom of the table with just three points from five games played.
Saturday's match represents a good chance for the 'Quakes to grab their first win if recent history is any indication. In the last five meetings between the sides San Jose has four wins and one draw, with the last two matches at Buck Shaw seeing a combined 6-0 scoreline in favor of the home team.
