Houston Dynamo vs Minnesota United
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Thursday, 12 September 2019
Kick-off at 00:00 UK/01:00 CET
Venue: BBVA Compass Stadium (Houston).
Houston Dynamo look set to miss the postseason for the fifth time in six campaigns as they have been winless in the recent seven MLS outings.
Even though the guest have a similar performance in the MLS after the break but a first-half record of W3, D8, L1, in their last 12 league fixtures will encourage for the dugout in the upcoming game.
Minnesota have stayed at the top three in the Western Conference, while the host is trailing at the bottom of the table.
With 15 losses and 9 wins from 28 games so far, the host will well know the match against the Loons will not be a walk in the park for them.

Houston Dynamo vs Minnesota United Prediction
All but one of Houston’s last five MLS fixtures have produced over 2.5 total goals. Their h2h stats show they have combined scored at least two goals minimum in four of their last five meetings.
Minnesota has found the back of the net in four of their last five away fixtures. Besides that, Dynamos have conceded 49 goals in the league and have conceded in the past five home matches too.
The host have a streak of conceding in the second half and they have only led two times in any half of the game, that too in the first half in recent times.
Dynamo seems to be too much tired in the second half as they have conceded most of their goals after the game restarts. Minnesota will put this to their advantage as they netted three goals in the second half of their previous away game.
Henceforth, there is more chance for the fixture to turn into a high goal-scoring affair and more heat of it to happen in the second half.
Houston Dynamo vs Minnesota United Betting tips
