Kick off at 01:00 UK/ 02:00 CET
Venue: TCF Bank Stadium (Minneapolis).

Minnesota United are in 8th place in the Western conference but are just three points from a play-off place and will have to fight hard from now until the end of the season if they want to make the final cut.

Form had been brilliant for the side with 3 wins in a row but that was stopped in the tracks after they lost last week to Vancouver Whitecaps with the game ending 4-2.

But Minnesota are back at home where they love to play, and indeed they have the 2nd best home record in the conference. They have won 25 of a possible 36 points and won their last 4 games in a row and almost averaging 2 goals a game at home.

Seattle Sounders are in 10th place but if they win this match they would go in front of Minnesota so there is a lot to play for. The club are in excellent form having won their last 3 games in a row and should relish this trip. They are unbeaten in their last 5 games.

Away from home they have only won 3 games from 11, but again we need to look at their recent form where they have gone their last 4 games unbeaten. It is clear that Seattle Sounders are enjoying their best form of their season.

Minnesota United vs Seattle Sounders: Head to Head

  • Home or away Seattle Sounders have won the last 3 meetings.

Minnesota United vs Seattle Sounders: Prediction

Both teams have the form but Seattle Sounders have the better strength within the team at this stage of the season.

The visitors are a team woken up from a poor start in the season and they are playing good football and have a good history over Minnesota.

Thus, the double chance on Seattle is great value and that is what we will be taking on with a maximum bet.
