What a Ride
The last time the two sides faced each other, Rubio Rubin made global headlines with his spectacular bicycle-kick goal that won MLS Goal of the Week and became an early contender for MLS Goal of the Year. However, late-game heroics from MLS's all-time leading goal scorer Chris Wondolowski in the 83rd and 87th minutes gave San Jose Earthquakes the victory.

The match is crucial for RSL in maintaining current playoff positioning, as San Jose sits just behind with 27 points. There are currently 11 matches remaining - including Wednesday - six of which are on the road as each remaining match proving crucial to the overall playoff picture in the Western Conference.
