DID YOU KNOW?
  • Colorado is fourth in the Western Conference with 37 points. San Jose would be last with 25 points were it not for expansion side Vancouver Whitecaps FC's lowly 18 points.
  • San Jose tied the year's other expansion side, the Portland Timbers, last week. However, that only extended the team's winless streak to 10, a club record.

  • The Earthquakes have failed to score in seven of those matches. Defender Steven Beitashour leads the team with four assists.

  • After Conor Casey tore his Achilles, Sanna Nyassi has stepped into the striking void, scoring four goals in the past four matches. Nyassi assisted Omar Cummings' goal in the 2-0 win over the Columbus Crew last week.
  • Colorado hasn't won in San Jose since 2003. Of the seven matches since, the Earthquakes have won three and drawn four.
