Allianz Field is the venue as Minnesota United take on FC Dallas in an exciting MLS match-up.
Minnesota’s three-game losing MLS streak was brought to a halt last time out thanks to a 4-0 thrashing of Real Salt Lake at home. It now means that all five of their previous top-flight fixtures have featured over 2.5 goals, with three seeing both teams on the scoresheet. At home in MLS, the ‘Loons’ have suffered just one defeat in from five matches (W2, D2), with both of their wins in such games yielding a two-goal margin. It is most certainly the kind of statistic Adrian Heath’s side will be looking to dwell on ahead of their clash against the team they’ve lost to in four of their last five top-flight H2H meetings (W1). Three of those four defeats have come via a two-goal margin!
Meanwhile, the visitors head into this encounter on a run of four MLS games without a loss (W1, D3). Each of those three draws featured under 2.5 goals and a goalless 0-0 second-half scoreline. In turn, both of Dallas’ league trips this season have ended in a stalemate and contained two goals or less. Immense difficulties in the final third have seen the ‘Toros’ net a miserly average of 1.14 goals per MLS fixture, as they enter this round as the only side yet to smash a 10-goal barrier (8 goals scored). But, if they manage to get on the scoresheet, the ‘Hoops’ are likely to do it after the break – 62.5% of their MLS goals scored arrived in the second half (5/8).
