Columbus Crew vs Minnesota United betting tips: Leagues Cup preview, predictions and odds


Columbus Crew vs Minnesota United match preview

Columbus Crew were imperious in the group phase, so can they carry that form into the knockout rounds?

Wilfried Nancy’s team topped Group East 1 with maximum points, beating St. Louis City 2-1 and then Club América 4-1, with Cucho Hernández scoring three times across those two matches.

However, since then, the Crew’s hopes of silverware have been dented by the fact that star midfielder Lucas Zelarayán has joined Al Fateh in Saudi Arabia.

Nevertheless, they’ll still fancy their chances of making home advantage count here.

Minnesota United meantime won their Leagues Cup opener, smashing Puebla 4-0 at Allianz Field, before losing 3-2 against Chicago Fire four days later, thereby having to settle for second.

So, a home win seems likely at Field, with the winners of this tie set to take on Toluca or Sporting Kansas City in the round of 16.
