Columbus Crew vs Minnesota United Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Columbus Crew have the simple requirement of taking a home win against Minnesota United and qualifying for the play-offs. Manager Gregg Berhalter sees his team possess a two-point advantage over Montreal Impact going into this final match of the regular campaign. Berhalter will be happy to see Minnesota United as Crew’s opponents, as Adrian Heath only play for pride coming into this match. Minnesota have also been on a run of three consecutive losses and they may not have a great deal of desire for a victory in this upcoming game. Crew will be highly motivated for a win but they have lacked quality in front of goal in recent weeks. I would back a Columbus Crew win and under 3.5 goals.

Minnesota United have been defensively poor with a whopping 14 goals conceded in the last six games. Still, Columbus Crew may not be in a position to exploit the same with the likes of Gyasi Zardes and Federico Higuain on poor form. However, Crew do not concede a lot at home and I would opt for a clean sheet for Berhalter’s men.

Columbus Crew win and under 3.5 goals in total – 5/4

Columbus Crew clean sheet – 1/1

Columbus Crew saw over 1.5 goals in 7 out of their last 10 games played

Columbus Crew are undefeated in all of their last 2 games against Minnesota United

Minnesota United saw over 1.5 goals in 10 out of their last 10 games played

Minnesota United have conceeded only 4 goals in their last 2 games against Columbus Crew
