Minnesota United vs Houston Dynamo Prediction
Only once has Houston lost to this team, and with a shot to take the pole position in the conference, the visitors will be keen to keep the stat intact. They recorded three of the last four wins and registered a three-goal winning margin the last time these two met.
Moreover, only twice has Houston lost this season, once against Seattle, and once against LA Galaxy. In addition, Minnesota was winless in seven of their last ten matches, and in six of their last eight at home.
If these trends are any suggestion, count on Houston to avoid a loss at any cost.
Taking into account the home status of Minnesota, and the fact that they scored in 11 of their last 13 games, the chances for them to record a goal in this tie is quite high. Also, consider that Houston conceded goals in their last four road trips. As such, expect goals at either end of the pitch this Sunday.
