Minnesota United will be looking to continue their unbeaten run in this match

Minnesota United have made a strong start to the MLS season gathering 7 points from a possible 9 this season. With two wins and one draw, the team occupies the second spot in the league. The team won its last match to Orlando City in a thriller.

After Orlando City thought they would be able to get one point out of the tie, Minnesota United won the tie 2-3 with a goal by Hlongwane in the 90+6 minute. Minnesota United will fancy their chances this season due to Teemu Pukki’s excellent form. 

Meanwhile, LAFC topped Seattle Sounders 2-1 in their first match of the season. After losing to Salt Lake in their second match and drawing a goalless match against Sporting KC in their last match, they have only collected one point since then. Having lost the last two matches, they will look to win this match to get back on track.

Player to Watch

Teemu Pukki (Minnesota United) 

The former Norwich man has made an instant impact in the team since signing for the club last summer. Having scored 10 goals in his debut season, he has scored two goals in three games this season. His movement causes defenders all sorts of problems in the box. He has been impressive at holding opponents to create chances for his team. His hold-up play has been impressive. 

Denis Bouanga (LAFC) 

He will be desperate to open his account after failing to score in his last few matches this season. In spite of not scoring this season, Denis Bouanga has been one of their shining lights. He won the golden boot last season in MLS and will be looking to make a mark in this game. When given time, Denis Bouanga shows he can be lethal and can make a big difference in the tie.
