Minnesota United vs Philadelphia Union Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Minnesota United went into the international break after having managed a 2-1 win over Chicago Fire. Despite being the away team, Minnesota were able to secure a 2-0 lead before halftime following a brace from Abu Danladi. Even though Chicago Fire did pull one back through David Accam in the 77th minute, the equaliser never came. Philadelphia Union were involved in a 2-2 draw with Atlanta United before the international break. Goals from Roland Alberg and Alejandro Bedoya scored to provide Philadelphia with a 2-0 lead within 23 minutes. Yamil Asad pulled one back for Atlanta, who capitalised on the 52nd minute red card for Joshua Yaro to come up with a late equaliser. Tyrone Mears scored in injury time to deny Philadelphia a win.

Betting Tips and Predictions

This will be the first meeting between Minnesota and Philadelphia Union. Minnesota’s recent form has been patchy with two wins and three defeats in the recent five. Minnesota are up against a Philadelphia Union team which has lost four out of the recent five away games. I would bet on Minnesota to come up with a win in this game.

Philadelphia have conceded more than two goals on average in the recent games. Minnesota have also let in 10 goals in the last six home games, and the club possess the worst defensive record in the division. I see excellent value in going with this game producing more than 2.5 goals.

Minnesota United win – 6/4

Minnesota United Preview

Minnesota United were able to secure the first away win of the season in the 11th attempt, as they beat Chicago Fire at the Toyota Park. This victory comes as a major surprise from a team that suffered five consecutive away losses. Even then, Minnesota continue to possess the worst defensive record in the MLS 2017 table with 52 goals conceded in 25 games. Six of the seven wins for Minnesota have been at home, but the club has managed just one win in the last five. Top scorer Christian Ramirez is out injured, and he has 11 goals this season.

Minnesota United Team News

Thomas de Villardi (Achilles tendon), Marc Burch (hernia), Christian Ramirez (hamstring), Bernardo Anor (leg), Vadim Demidov (knee), and Sam Cronin (concussion) are unavailable due to injury, while Justin Davis (foot) is a doubt.

Philadelphia Union Preview

Philadelphia Union have not been able to come up with a challenge for the play-offs after managing just one win in the last five league games. The club has struggled at the back in recent matches with 14 goals conceded. As a result, the team are five points behind the final play-off spot, which happens to be occupied by Atlanta United. Philadelphia might have been able to close the gap on the top six had it not been for the late goal conceded against Atlanta. Charles Sapong is the top scorer with 12 league goals.

Philadelphia Union Team News

Joshua Yaro is suspended for the game, while Fabian Herbers (hernia) remains out due to injury.
