Our prediction for this MLS match:
Minnesota United and Seattle Sounders face each other at Allianz Field in the closing match of this MLS round. The Loons restarted their MLS campaign with a 2-0 win over New York City and it is no wonder the odds for home win have been dropping. All Kervin Arriaga, Robin Lod, and Ryen Jiba are out of contention with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team.
Seattle, on the other hand, aim to recover from a 2-0 loss to Atlanta United, but given their shaky defence and poor winless run, home win should definitely be considered. Both Vargas and Montero are vying for spots in the starting XI, while the likes of Frei, Roldan, Teves, and Rowe are sidelined with injuries. In their last encounter in MLS Seattle defeated Minnesota 1-0, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
Highlighted Team (Minnesota United):
Based in the Minneapolis-Saint Paul area, Minnesota United are a professional soccer club that will compete in the Western Conference in the Major League Soccer from 2017. The Loons will make their MLS debut against Portland Timbers on March 4, 2017 and, no doubt, they have big ambitions for the forthcoming season.
Minnesota United are the sixth team to join MLS from a lower division and they will welcome their rivals at TCF Bank Stadium. The capacity of the stadium is 52.525 and it was opened in September, 2009. Bill McGuire is the club’s owner and he is on a quest to turn Minnesota United into a top-table side in the Western Conference.
Adrian Heath will be in charge of the club in the 2017 season and it has to be noted that the English tactician used to train the likes of Manchester City, Everton, Aston Villa and Espanyol in the past. You should know that the club was founded on March 25, 2015.
