Columbus Crew vs Minnesota United
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Wednesday, 29 July 2020
Kick-off at 1:00 UK/ 2:00 CET
Venue: ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.
The Black & Gold just might be the best team in the whole competition. Of all the teams that are in the tournament, they are the only ones with a 100% winning record in the Group Stage, and to further signify their dominance, they have not conceded a single goal so far as well.
Meanwhile, the Loons, despite coming into this shortened MLS contest with an unbeaten run, failed to leave their mark. They did manage to qualify to the knockouts, but that was largely due to the presence of some weak teams in their Group.
By the looks of things, Columbus Crew are easily the favorites to win this game, and they just might go all the way down and win the whole thing too.
Columbus Crew vs Minnesota United: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The latest clash was won by Adrian Heath’s men, with a 1-0 scoreline at home.
- However, every single encounter other than that was won by their counterparts.
- Caleb Porter’s men had scored two or more goals in two of the former three clashes.
- They had also kept clean sheets in two of the past four match-ups.
Columbus Crew vs Minnesota United: Prediction
The Black & Gold have a 100% winning record in the Group Stages, and registered a 7-0 combined scoreline in the process. They are also on an unbeaten run of 13 fixtures (of which ten were wins), and also remained so in 24 of their preceding 26 overall fixtures.
On top of that, they have a 100% winning record against this rival over the years, disregarding a single h2h match-up, and they have also kept clean sheets in all but two of such encounters.
Also note that they had scored two or more goals in 100% of h2h clashes as well, once again barring just two of the total h2h meetings so far.
Taking into account these observations, expect Columbus Crew to record another win here, and continue their impressive run to the Quarters.
