Minnesota United vs DC United Match Prediction

By William Hall

Minnesota United’s poor form continued to plague the team, as they suffered a 3-0 loss against New York Red Bulls. Daniel Royer’s long-range effort opened the scoring after 16 minutes. Further goals in the second half came through Bradley Wright Phillips and Alexander Muyl. DC United suffered five consecutive league defeats as the team lost 3-1 against Houston Dynamo. Despite the opposition’s poor away form, they were 3-0 up inside 16 minutes after goals from Andrew Wenger, Mauro Manotas, and José Rodriguez. Robert Boswell grabbed a consolation in the 62nd minute.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The huge injury list is a major problem for Minnesota United, who have not scored in the last three home games. Yet, DC United have conceded 10 goals in the last three away games and Minnesota might put away a few chances. DC United have also scored six goals in the last three matches. There is plenty of value in backing a draw.

Minnesota are likely to play this game safe due to the long list of injuries – including defender Sam Cronin. Even though only two of the last five league matches for both teams have produced under 2.5 goals, I would consider backing under 2.5 goals.

Draw – 12/5

Minnesota United Preview

Minnesota United have been put in danger of being cut off from the rest of the teams in the Western Conference table after suffering three defeats in the last five. The club has managed just one league win since June, while they have also failed to score in the last three league matches. Home form seemed like a saviour for the club only a few weeks ago, but the club’s last victory at the TCF bank stadium was against Portland Timbers more than a month ago. Minnesota now rank as the worst defence in the 2017 MLS table by a considerable margin after conceding 45 goals in 21 games. Christian Ramirez is the top scorer for the club with 10 goals.

Minnesota United Team News

DC United’s scoring record has improved substantially with the team netting six goals in the last three matches. Yet, it has not prevented the club from suffering five consecutive losses in the league. The major problem for DC United has been the inability to draw games, as it would provide solace from the consecutive defeats. United have been able to take only seven points from the last 13 matches. The team has the third worst defensive record with 38 goals conceded in 21 matches, but they are the lowest scorers – even after the recent run – with only 18 goals scored. Luciano Acosta is the top scorer, but with only four league goals.

DC United Preview

Minnesota manager Adrian Heath has a huge injury list with Bernardo Anor (muscle), Vadim Demidov (knee), Mark Burch (groin), Johan Venegas (hamstring), Rasmus Schuller (hamstring), Kevin Venegas (hamstring), Sam Cronin (neck), Joe Greenspan (head), and Thomas de Villardi (Achilles tendon) on the treatment table.

DC United Team News

Rob Vincent (meniscus) and Patrick Mullins (knee) are injury worries for DC United.
