DC United vs Minnesota
Tip: DC United — Odd: 1,55
FT: 2:1 (WON) (WON) (WON)
Match between DC United and Minnesota. DC United with one pretty good roster and probably will try to reach the playoffs, while Minnesota is one of the weakest teams and in pretty bad shape at the moment.
DC United for seasons was on the bottom, but for this season they have one really solid team and I believe that they will be able to finish in the playoff zone. They are in good shape, in last two rounds they were great. Firstly they won at home against Atlanta 3:1, while before few days they played 1:1 against New York City on the road. Two great results against one of the strongest teams in MLS. Tonight they will have much easier opponent, so I believe that they will grab the victory here. Like almost every team from MLS, they were and are still in some problems with absences (mostly due national teams). The situation for this match is slightly better because some of the players are back from national duties and will be availbale for tonight.
DC United will be without: Stieber (midfielder 23/5), Moreno (midfielder 15/0), Miranda (attacker 7/0), Kemp (defender 0/0), DeLeon (defender 10/0), Ousted (goalkeeper 17/0), Odoi-Atsem (defender 1/0). Questionable is Asad (attacker 23/9), while Kely (attacker 1/0) is rated like probable.
All in all, they are still with some absences, but some players are back (for example Mattocks and Arriola, two really important players) and I believe that against Minnesota they will be able for one easy and comfortable win.
Minnesota is nothing special. They are far away from the playoffs and they are really poor in away games. They have 1-1-11 so far with 14 scored goals and conceded 35 goals. Their defense is really weak. The attack is ok, but also Minneosta will be with some absences before this match.
They will be without: Boxall (defender 25/1), Calvo (defender 20/0), Ibarra (attacker 5/1), Schuller (midfielder 25/1), Cronin (midfielder 0/0), Molino (midfielder 2/2), Finlay (midfielder 7/2). Questionable are: Quintero (attacker 19/10) and Miller (defender 13/0).
Like we can see, their weak defense will be even weaker tonight without two standard defenders (Boxall and Calvo) due suspension. Also, their top scorer Quintero is questionable. Just to mention that last weekend they lost from Sporting Kansas City 2:0 and the hosts were also in big problems with absences, especially from attacking line.
I strongly believe that DC United will win this match. If you want higher odds, then DC United (-1 AH) with odds about 1,85 should be the right choice. Good luck !
