Colorado Rapids vs Minnesota United
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Thursday, 23 July 2020
Kick-off at 3:30 UK/ 4:30 CET
Venue: ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.
Robin Fraser’s men have lost both their games in the competition, and have put themselves in a tough situation. They absolutely need a victory this match-day to even have a shot at qualifying as one of the best third-placed teams, and this understandably will put them under huge pressure.
Their defense has let them down on both occasions, and especially in their latest fixture, when they conceded the winning goal in the 90+1st minute.
Considering the form of the Loons, the recent struggles of their counterparts, and the pressure Fraser’s men are under, expect a Minnesota win this Thursday.
Colorado Rapids vs Minnesota United: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Adrian Heath’s men recorded a 1-0 win in the latest clash.
- They had recorded three of the former six wins.
- They had also registered the biggest win, with a 1-4 scorecard on the road.
- Away from home, they have scored two or more goals in 100% of encounters, barring one game.
Colorado Rapids vs Minnesota United: Prediction
The Loons are on an unbeaten run in the past nine months, and they also had won the latest encounter against this rival (and that too while keeping a clean sheet).
On the other hand, their opposite number have lost all of their fixtures in this competition, and are absolutely desperate for a victory this Thursday. In fact, not only are they looking for a victory, but they need to score goals in plenty as well.
This desperation, along with their unstable defense will open them to a lot of attacks from Heath’s men. On top of that, the Loons have scored a total of 25 goals from their last nine match-ups.
By all means, expect a convincing win for Minnesota United at the ESPN Complex.
