Team News: Minnesota United
Luis Amarilla (Ankle Injury), Osvaldo Alonso (Muscle Injury), Tyler Miller (Hip Injury) and Ike Opara (Unknown Injury) won’t be able to feature for Minnesota Utd gaffer Adrian Heath.
Team News: Houston Dynamo
Thanks to a mainly available group of players, there is just the lone fitness problem for the Houston Dynamo gaffer Tab Ramos to be concerned about. Michael Salazar (Knee Injury) won’t be in action.
For this match, we think that Houston Dynamo have it within them to put a goal past this Minnesota United side, however that is unlikely to be enough to avoid defeat.
We think that it’s going to be a 2-1 winning score for Minnesota United when the full-time whistle blows. It’s a very tough call.
