Comeback kings Austin FC are at it again.
Last weekend, in a truly bonkers game at Q2 Stadium, the Verde and Black fought back from 2-0 and 3-1 behind to win 4-3 against Sporting Kansas City.
Jon Gallagher, Julio Cascante and Danny Hoesen all on target before, in the fifth minute of injured time, Sebastián Driussi fired home the winner, thereby completing the turnaround.
Austin have found themselves two goals down in five matches this season but, astonishingly, have managed to win three of these.
Josh Wolff’s side have also lost just one of their last 11, so sit second in the west, which would represent a remarkable finish in only their second season.
So, a tough task for Minnesota United, but they themselves are in decent shape too.
The Loons beat Nashville at Geodis Park last weekend, with Franco Fragapane and Alan Benítez hitting all the right notes in Music City.
So, Adrian Heath’s side have won six of their last nine, scoring at least twice in eight of these matches, including the last five in-a-row.
This upturn in form has seen Minnesota surge up to fourth in the west, looking good for a play-off place.
Expect fireworks at Allianz Field, although not the literal ones on display during last week’s All-Star game in St. Paul.
