If you're one of those who loves soccer with nail-biting excitement, then get ready because the upcoming battle at CITYPARK promises to be a real thriller. This Wednesday, at 7:30 PM, St. Louis CITY SC hosts the San Jose Earthquakes in a showdown that's already shaping up to be a true classic. And hey, the stage couldn't be more dramatic: two teams with interim coaches, eager to prove their worth and earn the fans' trust.

St. Louis CITY SC fans have plenty of reasons to be optimistic. The team boasts a favorable history against the Earthquakes, maintaining an unbeaten streak that's a source of pride for any club. Who could forget the commanding 3-0 victory last season? And that hard-fought 2-1 win on the road, with forward Sam Adeniran shining bright and netting twice?

But it's not all smooth sailing. In their last match, there was a bitter setback against the Vancouver Whitecaps, where CITY SC lost 4-3. Njabulo Blom and Nökkvi Thórisson scored their first goals of the season, while Eduard Löwen, a true maestro on the field, notched his second goal of the season. Speaking of Löwen, he's been a constant standout, with 25 goal contributions in 40 regular season matches.

CITY SC also saw young talent John Klein make his first MLS start. A pride of Missouri, Klein has already made an impact in six games, earning the fans' trust. And, of course, we can't forget the assists from Chris Durkin and Indiana Vassilev.

Talking about the roster, fans can rest easy knowing that CITY SC has shown excellent home performance. With a 14-7-7 record at CITYPARK, the team knows how to leverage the home advantage and score goals—lots of them. In each of their 14 victories, CITY SC has scored multiple goals, demonstrating an enviable offensive power. And let's not overlook the four clean sheets this season.

Now, with John Hackworth stepping in as interim coach, expectations are high for CITY SC to keep climbing. Hackworth, with nearly 30 years of experience, has had stints with teams like Philadelphia Union and Louisville City FC.

On the other hand, San Jose Earthquakes are going through a tough phase. With a disastrous 3-15-2 season record, the Californian team has been struggling, especially on the road, where they've secured just one win in ten matches. With Ian Russell taking over as interim coach after Luchi Gonzalez's dismissal, the Earthquakes are looking for a turnaround, but it won't be easy.

Who knows, maybe we'll see another dazzling performance from Sam Adeniran, a masterful display from Eduard Löwen, or perhaps a new hero emerging tonight?
