D.C. United concludes road trip in Minnesota
After a big 1-0 win over the Columbus Crew, D.C. United concludes their brief two-game road trip with a stop in Minnesota. On Sunday, D.C. United will take on Minnesota United FC in the brand new Allianz Stadium in St. Paul. D.C. United looks to win their second game in a row and build off that big Wednesday night win over Columbus. In that game, Wayne Rooney scored on a free kick, and Bill Hamid recorded another shutout.
D.C. United carries a 5-2-2 record with 17 points, which puts them in first place in the Eastern Conference. Minnosta United is sixth in the Western Conference with a 3-2-3 mark (11 points). This will be the third meeting all-time between the two clubs. In 2017, Minnesota United FC’s first season in MLS, the Wild won the first meeting at home 4-0. Last season, the Black and Red were the hosts and came away with the win.
Although Minnesota is in sixth place, only six points separate them from number three seeded Seattle. Their last win came against the New York Red Bulls on April 6, before drawing 3-3 against NYCFC, falling to Toronto FC 4-3, and played to a scoreless draw against the L.A. Galaxy.
Kickoff on Sunday is at 1:30 p.m. on FS1.
