Minnesota United vs Seattle Sounders FC Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Minnesota United secured a first win in more than a month after an emphatic 4-0 victory over DC United. After failing to score in the last three games, Minnesota took just seven minutes to score the opening goal through Christian Ramirez. Further goals from Abu Danladi, Jared Jeffrey (own goal), and Miguel Ibarra secured a comfortable win for the home team. Seattle Sounders were unable to capitalise on LA Galaxy’s struggles, as they could only manage a goalless draw with the rivals. Both teams had decent chances over the 90 minutes, but they were equally culpable of poor finishing. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Seattle and Minnesota face each other for the first time in MLS history, and Minnesota will be hoping to replicate the recent performance against DC United. Yet, they know that getting a result against Seattle, who are one of the inform teams, will be difficult. Seattle are unbeaten in the last three away matches, and this extends to six in terms of overall results. Minnesota were able to beat DC United, but the club have struggled against the top opposition this season. Yet, Seattle have just two wins in 12 away games. I would back a draw. The strong element of Seattle’s recent form has been good defence. The team will not allow the opposition too many chances. Minnesota failed to score in three of the last four games. I would go with under 2.5 goals.

Minnesota United Preview

Minnesota United will be relieved to end a five-game winless run, which was threatening to end the team’s glimmer hopes of finishing in the play-offs. The victory over DC United does not raise hopes about a top six finish straightaway, as Minnesota are still eight points behind Columbus Crew, who occupy the final play-off spot. The club has been let down by poor performances on the road, but the team also went four games without a win at the TCF bank stadium before the win over DC United. Christian Ramirez continues to remain as the major hope for Minnesota, and he is the club’s top scorer with 11 league goals.

Minnesota United Team News

Joe Greenspan (head), Kevin Venegas (hamstring), Rasmus Schuller (hamstring), Vadim Demidov (knee), Thomas de Villardi (Achilles tendon), Marc Burch (groin), and Bernardo Anor (muscle) are the players unavailable for Minnesota United.

Seattle Sounders FC Preview

Manager Brian Schmetzer has watched his Seattle Sounders team extend their unbeaten run to 6 league matches. Even though the run has only produced three victories, it has kept the club in the play-off places for an extended period of time. After making the poor start to the season, Seattle are now in a consolidating phase and are looking to make a push up the table. Two of the next three games will be at the CenturyLink Field, where Seattle are extremely strong. Surprisingly, the team are unbeaten in the last three away games. Clint Dempsey and Will Bruin are the top scorers with seven goals in each in the league.

Seattle Sounders FC Team News

Schmetzer will be without Osvaldo Alonso (ligament) for the game.
