Sporting Kansas City vs Minnesota United
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Monday, 13 July 2020
Kick-off at 01:00 UK/ 02:00 CET
Venue: ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.
The Loons were one of the best teams in the Western Conference the last season, and they had missed out on a podium spot by the tiniest of margins. In this shortened version of the MLS, they are included in Group D – which has two strong teams (of which they are one), along with two minnows.
This Monday, Adrian Heath’s men are taking on one of the weaker squads, and in order to make sure they get the top-most spot at the end of the group stage, a win is a must – as Real Salt Lake are the obvious favorites in their match-up against Colorado Rapids.
Considering the recent form of either teams, and especially of the Loons away from home, it’s expected that Minnesota United will post the three points on the board this Monday.

Sporting Kansas City vs Minnesota United: Prediction
The Loons were one of the top teams in their conference in 2019, and had qualified to the playoffs in style. In the meanwhile, their counterparts had finished in the bottom tier of the table, and they had also lost the latest h2h match-up.
Moreover, Heath’s men will desperately try for the win here, as if they drop points, the chances for them to finish as toppers of Group D will diminish significantly.
In addition, they were unbeaten in six of their past seven overall games, while their opposite number were winless in ten of their last thirteen fixtures. As such, expect Minnesota United to avoid a loss at the least.
Going on though, they have always struggled on the road against this rival, and moreover this is a tournament that involves knockout games, and every team will fancy their chance.
For the reason, expect goals from both teams.
