COLUMBUS (1-2-6) vs. SAN JOSE (1-6-2), 7:30 p.m. ET, Direct Kick
The Crew is missing defender Danny O'Rourke (suspended) and midfielder Adam Moffat (injured), and might be looking ahead to its weekend game in Seattle, where former head coach Sigi Schmid is now in charge. But its desperate need for points should generate sufficient focus and energy to down the Quakes, who are pointless in four road games this season.
Prediction: Crew 2, Quakes 1
Last week: 5-2. Season: 34-41.
