Earthquakes vs. United, Match Preview: Quakes Head to D.C. Looking to Keep Unbeaten Streak Intact

With both teams currently owning elongated unbeaten streaks, the San Jose Earthquakes and D.C. United are set to clash at RFK Stadium Saturday night.

San Jose is back on the East Coast after an exciting 2-0 win against the Houston Dynamo at Buck Shaw Stadium last weekend. As for United, they just finished up a two-game unbeaten trip out West, including a scoreless draw against the Western Conference leading LA Galaxy.

2010 MLS Golden Boot Award winner Chris Wondolowski will be back with the team after being away last week with the U.S. National team in CONCAF Cup play. You’d have to go all the way back to April 10, 2010 to find a game without Wondo in San Jose’s game day lineup; since then Wondolowski had scored 18 goals in MLS play.

San Jose hasn’t been beaten by United in their last five meetings, including wins during both of their last two visits to RFK Stadium over the last few seasons. D.C. hasn’t beaten the Quakes since June 22, 2008 at RFK, but interestingly haven’t won in San Jose since 1998.

Kick off is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. PT Saturday with coverage on CSN Bay Area and MLS Match Day for paid subscribers.
