The Lions make the cross-country trip to play the Quakes, still looking for that elusive first winning streak in MLS. Can Orlando City claim three points and finally put back-to-back wins on the board this season?

Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to your open thread for today's match-up between Orlando City SC and the surprisingly good San Jose Earthquakes. The game is at Levi's Stadium rather than San Jose's usual home at Avaya Stadium, so the crowd should be a good one.

The Lions (3-5-3, 12 points) make their second cross-country trip hoping for similar results to what they found in Portland. In fact, Orlando City is 3-1 against Western Conference opponents, with wins at Houston and Portland and last Sunday's home victory over the LA Galaxy. The lone loss came in the sixth minute of (at least) four minutes of stoppage against the Vancouver Whitecaps.

Orlando City is 2-2-1 on the road during this inaugural MLS campaign so far, but have lost two straight (Columbus, D.C. United) after a 2-0-1 start.

San Jose (5-4-2, 17 points) entered the weekend fourth in the Western Conference and is remarkably improved after finishing last in the conference in 2014. As you've no doubt heard by now, Earthquakes star man Chris Wondolowski will be looking for his 100th MLS goal and it will likely be up to last week's surprise starter, Tally Hall, to deny him that distinction.

This is your live thread for posting comments on the match. So use our comments section below to talk about the game in real time with other supporters. If you're new, welcome to our happy home! While you're here, please observe a few basic rules:

  • Absolutely no links to illegal streams. They can get us in trouble, and no one wants that.
  • Try not to be "that guy" who spews nothing but venom and hate for the team. It's ok to be critical, and, let's face it, sometimes even the best teams can be frustrating to watch, but being overly negative relentlessly can sap the enjoyment for others.
  • Keep it somewhat clean and fair when criticizing players / officials. You never know who might be reading.
  • Do unto others in the match thread, the way you would have others do unto you. We are a fun community and want to keep it this way. We have a moderator, but we'd rather let him enjoy the game instead of having to play babysitter.
  • Finally, we don't have a rule against profanity but don't abuse the non-rule. Also, any language that is sexist, racist, or homophobic in nature will be swiftly deleted and you may lose posting privileges. We're all in this together.
