The Portland Timbers are back home after a worrying performance against the Chicago Fire over the weekend and now they will be hosting the San Jose Earthquakes before heading into the Copa America break. With both teams missing a number of players, this will be a good opportunity for both the Timbers and the Quakes to go into their week off on a high note.
"The Quakes are coming off of their own snooze fest of a game, drawing against FC Dallas at home 0-0. The MLS recap for the match was a masterstroke of brevity, simply saying "The San Jose Earthquakes and FC Dallas played to a 0-0 draw with neither club able to mount much offense," before just listing out the perfunctory stats. I don't think I could say it any better."
