Austin FC Outlook

Austin FC will enter Saturday in 3rd place in the Western Conference after securing their fifth consecutive home victory this season. Two goals by Jáder Obrian and another by captain Sebastián Driussi – his third straight game with a goal – helped the Verde & Black to beat SKC at Q2 Stadium and extend that streak.

Dani Pereira put in a strong performance in that match as well, assisting both of Obrian’s goals to earn the pair a place in the MLS Team of the Matchday. Pereira chipped in four successful dribbles, four chances created, and eight duels won as well.

Last time these two teams met on April 6, Driussi scored the latest goal in Club history in the 101st minute to lift Austin FC to a 4-3 win. Austin FC's first three goals in that match were the fastest three consecutive goals in Club history, all scored within five minutes of each other by Driussi, Obrian, and Guilherme Biro.

San Jose Earthquakes Outlook

San Jose Earthquakes is currently in last place in the MLS Western Conference with a record of 3-1-10. The team was in U.S. Open Cup action on Tuesday night, falling to USL Championship side Sacramento Republic FC 4-3 at Heart Health Park after extra time.

In San Jose’s last MLS match last Saturday, they suffered a 1-0 defeat against Orlando City SC in a tight match at PayPal Park. Orlando struck late in the 89th minute to secure all three points. San Jose holds a 2-0-4 record at home, with wins over LAFC and Seattle.

The team has received a boost since the arrival of Designated Player Hernán López, who arrived from Godoy Cruz for a club-record transfer fee. López already has two goals to his name in four MLS matches. Offseason arrival Amahl Pellegrino has also been productive with a team-high four goals, and Cristian Espinoza remains one of MLS’ most dangerous creators with seven assists.
