Minnesota United FC are Not at Their Best, but have points on the Table

Minnesota United didn’t enjoy a great pre-season and was expected to struggle throughout the season. The team managed only one win from their five friendly matches and were drawn three times.

They started the season well and went on to win four matches. After taking the lead in the first half, they were tied 1-1 by Philadelphia Union.

Their first home match of the season ended in a draw. However, they were forced to play from one goal down this time to earn their point. The away team took a lead very quickly when Charles Sapong scored in the fifth minute. Minnesota were struggling to get back into the game despite dominating possession before Hassani Dotson got them the equalizer with less than 20 minutes left. The game was drawn as they could not get another goal.

Their wait for the first victory of the season was not over as they beat the New York Red Bulls the third week. United’s defense performed the remainder of their job, scoring the only goal in the first half. Luis Amarilla was the one to score. The Red Bulls attacked throughout the game and had 19 shots at goal but could not find the back of the net once.

Luis Amarilla again led Minnesota in scoring. This result was against the San Jose Earthquakes. They were also on top of their defense and did not allow any opponent to score throughout the match.

The sneaky win streak came to an abrupt halt when the Seattle Sounders visited their home. Joao Paulo gave the away team the lead at halftime, but Brent Kallman’s goal made it double. Emanuel Reynoso pulled one back for Minnesota from the spot in the 82nd minute, but they could not find another, thus ending their unbeaten start to the season.

Austin FC won 1-0 to give Minnesota a taste. Maximiliano Urruti was the goal scorer and Austin FC defended admirably to maintain the score.

It looked as though the Minnesota opponents found a way around the Minnesota defense. The Colorado Rapids attempted to duplicate it. They failed to have much impact and Minnesota won 3-1. Bakaye dibassy and Robin Lod were on the scoresheet, as was Abu Danladi. Rapids’ Diego Rubio got the goal.

United was forced to play Chicago Fire late in the second game, but came out victorious 3-0. Both sides were going neck and neck throughout the game before Emanuel Reynoso broke the deadlock in the 72nd minute. Robin Lod and Kervin Arriaga added two goals each in the last six minutes after Federico Navarro had been sent off for away.

They seemed to be on their feet but LAFC gave them a wake-up call. Ryan Hollingshead scored and Jose Cifuentes got the winning goal in the last 8 minutes to give LAFC the win. Minnesota is now 9th on the league table.
