The San Jose Earthquakes vs Toluca CONCACAF Champions League match will be held this Tuesday, March 11, 2014 (8:00 PM Pacific) at the Buck Shaw Stadium. Toluca from Mexico will visit the difficult SJ Earthquakes in the first-leg of this Concachampions quarterfinal. The Liga MX team is the clear favorite to win this game, although San Jose will have the home support apart from their talented roster.
The team coached by Mark Watson is ready to host the difficult Diablos of Toluca in what is expected to be a very exciting and entertaining quarterfinal series. San Jose qualified into the knock-out stages after winning Group 5 over Montreal Impact and Heredia on goal differential. The MLS team is considered the underdog in this quarterfinal not only because of their weaker talent as opposed to their rivals, but because they are barely entering the start of their season while Toluca has already played ten matches in the Clausura 2014.
The team coached by Jose Saturdino Cardoso will be a team highly feared by their rivals considering how well they have played this season. Toluca is currently in 2nd place in the Liga MX with 22 points, with the league’s best defense, and the second best offense. The ‘choriceros’ return to CCL play in incredible form which will create a strong challenge for their hosts, San Jose.
San Jose Earthquakes vs Toluca Prediction
The SJ Earthquakes vs Toluca CCL first-leg quarterfinal will be played defensively by both sides.

In what will be an intense but calm match, Toluca will defeat San Jose 2-0.
