Minnesota United vs Austin
USA – MLS
Date: Sunday, 2 May 2021
Kick-off at 1:00 UK/ 2:00 CET
Venue: Allianz Field (Minnesota).
Minnesota has scored just one goal so far in MLS this season. Their striker’s inability to find the back of the net has reflected in their winless streak in the campaign. The host is on a two-game losing streak, following a 1-2 loss at home against Real Salt Lake in the last league clash. They played in the conference finals last season and were the ninth-placed team in the overall table.
In the meantime, Austin FC is on their maiden season in MLS. The Greens have started with a loss in their MLS journey but made a comeback with a win last time out in their schedule. Just two games old in MLS, the visitor will come into the game with surprises. They will visit on the back of a 1-3 win on the road against Colorado Rapids last time out in the campaign.

Minnesota United vs Austin Prediction
Minnesota is a tough team to break at home, especially when you are a newcomer in the league. The Loons enjoys the ground advantage in the middle and had a good record at home last term also. The host is yet to find their first win this season and hence, we can expect them to come in with all guns blazing to the next game. The tip for the combined over 2.5 goals and BTTS will come in handy for the bets in the goals area.
Austin FC hasn’t disappointed with their start in the MLS this term. The away team had a decent margin win on the road last time out. Thus, expect the newcomers to score at least a goal in ninety minutes even when they are far from the three points against last season’s finalists. Hence, the home win in full-time will probably be the best bet for the punters in the fixture.
