Earthquakes Take on Seattle Sounders FC Tonight
SAN JOSE, Calif. - The San Jose Earthquakes (6-7-5; 23 pts.) are facing Seattle Sounders FC (9-4-3; 30 pts.) tonight at Earthquakes Stadium, presented by the City of San Jose. The match kicks off at 7:30 p.m. and will be broadcast live on NBC Sports California, KNBR 1050 and 1370 KZSF.

The Western Conference rivals will face off once more, on Nov. 8, to close out the 2020 regular season.
The Quakes hold a 5-3-4 all-time home record vs. Sounders FC but have yet to defeat the defending MLS Cup champions at Earthquakes Stadium in five prior meetings (0-2-3).
