Minnesota United Prediction- Can Minnesota bounce back at home?

7th placed Minnesota United are just about hanging onto their place in the play-off pack in the Western Conference, but they need to bounce back with a result on Saturday.

The hosts have the likes of Real Salt Lake and Vancouver Whitecaps breathing down their necks and 1 point behind them ahead of this weekend’s action.

A sequence of 3 defeats on the trot have also done recent damage to Minnesota’s play-off ambitions with losses to Atlanta United, Philadelphia Union and Colorado Rapids.

Although they suffered defeat last time out on home turf at their Allianz Field though, it was to Eastern Conference leaders, Philadelphia Union.

Form at home prior to that loss had been solid and the hosts possess a pretty good record which stands at 3-3-1 9/7.

Wins against DC United, Columbus Crew and Houston Dynamo should stand Minnesota in good stead here as well as 4 clean sheets to date.

Minnesota also possess dangerous attacking pair in the final third in the shape of Quintero (5 goals) and Rodriguez (4 goals) who could cause a few problems for Cincinnati here.

Cincinnati Prediction – Can Cincinnati stop the rot at Minnesota?

Cincinnati sit rock bottom of the Eastern Conference with just 11 points under their belts so far in this season’s MLS and a string of defeats.

The visitors have gained just 3 league wins all season to date which were victories over Portland Timbers, New England Revolution and Montreal Impact.

However, the losses have far outweighed their occasional highlights, and the visitors make their way over to Minnesota having lost their last 5 matches on the trot overall.

2 of Cincinnati’s 3 wins so far this season have been recorded on home turf at their Nippert Stadium, but they’ve registered just 1 win on the road this season.

A poor away record of 1-1-8 8/24 includes the visitors losing their last 7 away matches on the trot, which includes just 1 clean sheet.

It’s not been an easy introduction to the American top flight for the MLS’s newest franchise, and their baptism of fire may well continue in Minnesota on Saturday night.

Cincinnati have also failed to score in 4 of their 10 away matches so far this season too, so this trip could prove to be a very tough one for the visitors.


Key-Facts – Minnesota United v Cincinnati

  • Minnesota Utd have suffered just 1 defeat at home in the MLS
  • Minnesota Utd have kept 4 clean sheets to date on home turf
  • Cincinnati have lost their last 7 away matches on the trot in the MLS


Betting Tips Verdict

Minnesota were handed a defeat by Philadelphia Union last time out on home turf, but I’m fully expecting the hosts to bounce back here in style.
