The Galaxy are coming off of a 3-2 loss to LAFC on Friday. Samuel Grandsir and Rayan Raveloson each scored goals in the loss. Despite having more shots and shots on target and a higher time of possession, cross-town rivals LAFC pulled off the win.
So far this season, the Galaxy have eight wins through 18 matches. 27 points tie them with Minnesota and Nashville, but LA has the advantage in goal differential. Still, the battle for the playoff spots in the Western Conference is tight and Greg Vanney’s side need to get a win on Wednesday to maintain its position.
Last season, the Galaxy missed the playoffs.
Predicted LA Galaxy starting XI: Edwards, Williams, Coulibaly, Araujo, Grandsir, Raveloson, Delgado, Álvarez, Joveljic, Chicharito; Bond.

|Goalkeepers||Marcinkowski, Bersano, Ochoa|
|Defenders||Marie, Nathan, Beason, Thompson, Agren, Lopez, Walls, Calvo|
|Midfielders||Remedi, Salinas, Chofis, Yueill, Skahan, Gregus, Asomani, Haji, Richmond, Fuentes, Tsakiris, Monteiro, Judson|
|Forwards||Espinoza, Ebobisse, Bouda, Kikanovic, Cowell|
The Earthquakes are coming off of a draw with Toronto in their last game, with Jeremy Ebobisse scoring in the first half. Toronto took the lead after goals in the 71st and 75th minutes, but Jack Skahan was able to level the match in stoppage time for a share of the points.
While the Earthquakes are mired down in the standings, they have two draws and a win in the last four matches, suggesting an uptick in form.
Overall, San Jose have four wins and seven draws through 18 matches. They have 19 points, the same number as Sporting KC despite playing two fewer matches. There’s a chance San Jose can get back in the playoff hunt if it can start stringing together some good performances.
Predicted San Jose starting XI: López, Beason, Nathan, Marie, Judson, Yueill, Kikanovic, Gregus, Espinoza, Ebobisse; Marcinkowski
