Minnesota United’s last match was against Portland Timbers on Saturday and it finished in an entertaining 4:4 draw at home. Playing at home turned out to be of little help across the ten previous Minnesota United games as the hosting party recorded 4 victories and the travelling sides registered 4 triumphs. Just two of those last 10 meetings were draws. Looking at the squad’s previous five encounters, it becomes apparent that three featured over 2.5 goals and four witnessed goals at both ends. Throughout these, Minnesota United managed to prevent goals in their net one time and scored a minimum of one goal in the process. The goalkeepers had a busy time throughout the team’s recent five outings, as they had to pull the ball out of the nets nineteen times combined.
