It’s third vs fourth in the Western Conference as two serious play-off contenders lock horns in St. Paul.
Minnesota United had won three successive matches before Wednesday night’s shock 3-0 defeat against Real Salt Lake.
This really came out of the blue because, beforehand, Adrian Heath’s side had yielded 26 points from their previous 11 outings, only losing to Colorado since 25 June.
Back at home, will the Loons’ top three aspirations get back on track?
FC Dallas though will be looking to leapfrog their hosts with a victory at Allianz Field.
Nico Estévez’s team, coincidentally enough, also faced RSL in their last fixture, held to a 1-1 draw last weekend.
Alan Velasco breaking the deadlock after just seven minute at Toyota Stadium, but it was not enough to deliver three points.
So, Dallas have only won two of their last six, meaning their play-off spot is far from guaranteed.
Who will claim three massive points?
