Minnesota United FC and Sporting KC face off in an MLS showdown at Allianz Field in St. Paul. These two teams faced off in the first group stage game inside the bubble and it was Minnesota United who came away with a 2-1 victory.
Minnesota United’s first loss this season came in their last game in the semifinals of the MLS is back tournament, but outside of that game, they have found a lot of success.After their win over Portland in the first game of the group stage they played toa couple of draws against Real Salt Lake and Colorado. In the first game of the knockout stage it took penalties kicks but they were able to come away with a victory. In the quarterfinals they continued their strong play against San Jose putting up four goals in maybe their most dominant game of the season. Robin Lod, Jacori Hayes, Luis Armarilla, and Marlon Hairston.
This is a strong scoring team but at times their back lines can cause issues and in this game that can’t be the case. In this game MInnesota United needs to get out to the first goal. In the last game against Sporting KC they fell behind early, and it took a comeback late to come away with a victory.
On the other side of this matchup is Sporting KC who also found a lot of success inside the bubble in Orlando. After the loss against Minnesota United, Sporting KC won back to back games against the Colorado Rapids and Real Salt Lake. In the round of 16 against Vancouver they played in a defensive battle and in penalty kicks they were able to come away with the victory. In the quarterfinals against Philadelphia the defense let them down giving up thee goals and that led to a loss.
Minnesota United has already beaten Sporting KC once this year and it’s going to happen again in this game.Look for Minnesota United to get the first goal and to never look back, and that will lead to the home team coming away with a victory.
