Houston Dynamo vs Minnesota United
Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 8 July 2018
Kick-Off at 02:00 UK
Venue: BBVA Compass Stadium (Houston).
Houston Dynamo are going to face Minnesota United in the battle for the playoff spot in the 20th round of Major League Soccer.
The hosts haven’t played very well lately as they booked just one win in the last five rounds. They are one point behind the top six and Vancouver Whitecaps are just ahead of them.
Alberto Elis and the lads are one of the most efficient sides in the competition, while their defending wasn’t so good. Houston Dynamo are performing very well in front of the home crowd as they snatched 13 points in their last five home matches.
Minnesota United are three points behind their rivals, but they are still hoping of getting involved in the battle for the playoff spots. They celebrated two times in the last five occasions and although they weren’t too bad in the front, Adrian Heath should work more with his players on improving the defending of their goal.
However, Minnesota United are the worst away side in the competition as they managed to get back home with a win just once, and that is the only match where they managed to remain undefeated.
Houston Dynamo vs Minnesota United: Head-to-head
Houston Dynamo have been slightly better in their head to head clashes and last time they faced each other at the same venue three weeks ago when the hosts celebrated a narrow 1-0 victory. Their encounters are usually high scoring ones.
Houston Dynamo vs Minnesota United: Prediction
This one is tricky to predict as both sides are in a variable form. However, since the visitors are awful when playing at away pitches, they shouldn’t manage to get away with anything from this match. Houston Dynamo should get a bit closer to the playoff spot.
Home side is very good in the front, while Minnesota United have allowed too many goals when playing away from home this season. As they used to play efficient clashes, in this one we are expecting to see at least three goals.
