Cincinnati previously faced Minnesota United on Sunday and the final score was a slender 0:1 win away from home. The outfit is currently on a streak of three consecutive victories. Playing at home turned out to be of little help across the ten previous Cincinnati games, as the hosting party recorded 3 wins and the travelling sides registered 6 triumphs. The result was a draw in just one of the outfit’s most recent 10 clashes. Two of Cincinnati’s five previous meetings finished with more than 2.5 goals and two saw both sides finding the net. Cincinnati managed to prevent their opponents from scoring on three occasions and they failed to net goals on their own in only one of those encounter. The team’s most recent five outings lacked high-scoring action, with the players responsible for an average of 1.8 goals.
