Vancouver Whitecaps vs San Jose Earthquakes: MLS Live Stream


On Sunday, two Western Conference teams, separated by just one point in the standings, will continue their MLS seasons as the Vancouver Whitecaps host the San Jose Earthquakes at BC Place Stadium. The Earthquakes have secured points in their last three league matches, including a 2-0 win against the Seattle Sounders in their recent domestic game. Meanwhile, the Whitecaps trail by one point in seventh place and have won their last two matches in the competition. They most recently achieved a 4-2 triumph over the Los Angeles Galaxy.

With a dozen games still on the horizon, Vancouver finds themselves in an uncommon situation, a departure from recent years, currently positioned three points above the Western Conference playoff threshold. Unlike previous seasons where they were playing catch-up at this stage, the Whitecaps boast five extra points compared to the same point last year after 22 matches. Developing a strategy against manager Vanni Sartini can be intricate, given his tendency to vary formations and make subtle tactical adjustments frequently. Their home record since March remains strong, with just one defeat at BC Place Stadium in this competition – a 3-2 loss to the Sounders after relinquishing two one-goal leads. Vancouver has consistently scored in their last 10 MLS home matches, with only one goalless draw against the Colorado Rapids in late April marring their domestic record.

San Jose’s supporters are relishing a rare sight – their team in a strong playoff contention, a scenario they’ve only witnessed once since 2018. With 11 games left and a four-point buffer along with four trailing teams, post-season action appears promising. Luchi Gonzalez has orchestrated the Quakes’ remarkable turnaround, amassing 32 points, just three shy of their dismal 2022 season’s end in the Western Conference basement. The most notable progress lies in their defense, conceding only 29 goals this year compared to last season’s 69 – the highest in the West. Similar to Vancouver, San Jose has managed one away victory this season, nearly clinching three more against Atlanta United (2-1 loss), New York Red Bulls, and Los Angeles FC (both 1-1 draws, with opening goals). While unbeaten in four matches against Vancouver, they’ve last secured a win at BC Place in 2019 with a 3-1 comeback triumph.
