Minnesota United to Win

The Loons followed their 4-0 humbling on the road to Seattle Sounders with a 1-2 home defeat against Real Salt Lake. The final results belie the gulf between the sides, which was minimal and limited by Minnesota’s proficiency in front of the goal. With Austin on their second away trip and piling on miles, Adrian Heath will be fancying his side’s chances at home turf.

Total Goals Over 2.5

Minnesota have been seen seven goals in their first two games of the season. The tally stands at five for Austin FC, enjoying their induction to the MLS. In early exchanges, both sides have shown a tendency for scoring goals and conceding. Moreover, with the Loons desperate for victory, expect them to play an open match in search of the three points on offer.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

In the comfort of the Allianz Field, Minnesota will fancy their chances of getting on the scoreboard. Austin have shown they cannot be shrugged off after their 1-3 victory over Colorado Rapids. However, they remain suspect at the back as evidenced by their 2-0 defeat to Los Angeles FC. All ingredients point towards plenty of options for the attackers and the scorers being busy on either side of the pitch.

Minnesota Utd vs Austin Fixture Preview

Minnesota Utd

Adrian Heath oversaw a fourth-placed finish in the Western Conference. However, they struggled in the MLS post-season and that form has continued for them in the 2021 campaign. The Loons need to pick up the result or they will be relegated to the bottom slots and points at home need to be cherished given the distances involved in travelling. The much-travelled Robin Lod impressed in the previous campaign with 8 goals in 20 outings. He has started the campaign amongst goals and will be looking to build on his tally on Sunday.

Austin FC

Los Verdes have given themselves the perfect launchpad. Josh Wolff’s men were caught in the shallows in their MLS debut but gave a good account of themselves against Colorado Rapids, also on the road. Austin will be travelling to Minnesota for their third away trip in a row but will be content with their performances so far. Paraguayan forward, Cecilio Dominguez has taken a liking to the American top-flight, following his exploits in the Primera Division with two goals in two outings for Los Verdes.
