Stanford

More than 50,000 fans expected at Stanford Stadium for California Clásico in Rivalry Week Edición Especial 

With a Rivalry Edición Especial featuring the LA Galaxy against the San Jose Earthquakes on Saturday, July 1 (7:30 p.m. PT, Univision/facebook.com), a heartstopping California Clásico at Stanford Stadium will showcase two clubs who have been duking it out since the inaugural MLS season.
 
For the last five years drawing sellout crowds of more than 50,000 to Stanford Stadium, Saturday’s annual soccer showdown will mark the 70th all-time meeting between two clubs that can each claim some bragging rights. At Stanford Stadium, the Quakes are an undefeated 3-0-1. However, in all regular season meetings, the Galaxy have dominated League play by a margin of 30-20 in the win column, with 14 ties.
 
With rivalry regulars and a few new faces, the Galaxy (6-6-4) and the Quakes (6-6-5) have nearly identical records and will be leaning on big performances heading into Saturday. For San Jose, forward Chris Wondolowski is battle-tested with a tally of eight goals, most of any Quakes player in their history against LA, including the opening goal in the May 27 meeting. The Galaxy came back to steal a 4-2 win in that game, and will be looking to midfielder Romain Alessandrini, who has played his part in the majority of the club’s goals this season, with eight goals and seven assists on the season.
