Minnesota United, though undefeated in last three matches, have to manoeuvre through some tricky spots. Playoffs seem a distant possibility as of now. They have to win the remaining four matches at disposal, and two of them are on the road.

Minnesota are ten points behind the playoff spot and their consistency during this league season has been below par at best. Philadelphia is on a run of three consecutive clean sheets in the league and they will try to extend the streak.

With Philly needing just one more point to book a place in the playoffs, they most probably will rely on their rock-solid defence to get the job done. Their attack doesn’t seem to be clicking in the last few weeks. They are scoreless in the last two games and did not register a single shot on target in the last game.

Philadelphia Union vs Minnesota United Head-to-head

  • Only one match has been played between the two and it ended in a 1-1 draw.
  • Minnesota is winless is last nine away games.

  • Philly have taken part in 16 under 2.5 games this season and Minnesota, nine.

Philadelphia Union vs Minnesota United Prediction

Philadelphia needs just one point to secure play-offs and they will their well-machined defence to get the job done. Their attack has been misfiring for the last few weeks and the trend will not change this weekend, especially as there is no urgent need for it.

Riding on a streak of three consecutive clean sheets, Philly will extend its run against Minnesota. Expect the match to be a low-scoring one. Philadelphia and Minnesota have taken part in 16 and nine U 2.5 matches respectively.

Average goals scored by Philadelphia this season is 1.39. And for Minnesota, the figure is 1.5. With their bad away form Minnesota is not expected to put balls past the Philly defence.
