Minnesota United vs FC Cincinnati Prediction & Match Preview

Minnesota United vs FC Cincinnati
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Saturday, 29 June 2019
Kick-off at 21:00 UK/ 22:00 CET
Venue: Allianz Field (Minnesota).

Cincinnati is without question the worst team in the conference, and maybe even in the whole of MLS. They are placed at the extreme end of the Eastern table and is the only team in the competition to experience losses in the last five match-days.

The last day, the side lost, even with the support of the home crowd. They were hosting LA Galaxy and conceded two early goals to invite pressure, from which they could not climb back.

Minnesota took a hit in their playoff ambitions with three losses in a row and will be hoping to put an end to this dismal run. Currently, they are on the verge of the playoff list but needs to break off this recent complacency to extend their stay in the zone.

The squad was on the road against the lowest-placed team in the West, the Rapids, and still lost to a solitary goal.

Minnesota United vs FC Cincinnati Prediction

Cincinnati is the worst team in the whole league and is going through a period of absolute disaster. They lost their last five league ties, and 12 of their last 15 overall matches. On the road, they lost the last eight trips in a row and failed to score in five of them, while conceding three or more goals in three of the last four.

Minnesota, on the other hand, will be determined to put an end to their recent struggles, and stake a hold in the playoff list.

The side might have lost their last three league fixtures. But do keep in mind that, they won the last two games, and was unbeaten in eight of their last ten home ties. On top of that, they have the home advantage for this tie, which puts the struggling visitors vastly in trouble.

If Minnesota is able to deal with their nerves regarding their recent form, this match is theirs to lose. The guests for the day are in no way prepared to deliver a good performance.
