Match preview

Can Austin FC continue their positive start to, what is, just their second-ever MLS season?

Last weekend, the Texans raced into a 2-0 lead in California thanks to a stunner from Maxi Urruti, followed by a Sebastián Driussi penalty.

However, they relinquished this advantage, conceding twice in as many minutes, thereby only drawing 2-2 with San Jose Earthquakes.

Austin began the season with back-to-back wins, both at home, but have since added just two points to their tally.

Nevertheless, Josh Wolff's side are currently fourth in the Western Conference, and he'll be delighted to finish anywhere near there.

Minnesota United meanwhile have made the play-offs in each of the last three seasons, but are currently just below the all-important dotted line.

The Loons' unbeaten start to 2022 came to an end last weekend, going down 2-1 to Seattle Sounders at Allianz Field.

Emanuel Reynoso's penalty unable to spark a comeback, but it did maintain the fact Minnesota have scored exactly once in all five matches so far.

This has seen Adrian Heath's men accumulate eight points, but will they leave Q2 Stadium with three more?
