The early leaders in the Western Conference are looking to pull away from the teams in the bottom half and that could be the case this weekend in the MLS.

The game between Minnesota United and FC Dallas will be played on the 9th of June at Allianz Field. The hosts begin this round of fixtures in 3rd place in the Western Conference on 28 points while the visitors are in 12th place on 13 points.

Minnesota United come into the match on the back of a 3-1 home win over Sporting Kansas City in Major League Soccer.

Minnesota United led 1-0 at halftime following a goal in the 33rd minute and doubled their advantage in the 67th minute. Minnesota United secured maximum points with their third goal in the 83rd minute and Sporting Kansas City scored a consolation goal 3 minutes later.

The victory over Sporting Kansas City means Minnesota United are undefeated in 7 of their 8 most recent fixtures, all of which have been played in the MLS.

There have been wins over Charlotte and Atlanta United away plus Sporting Kansas City and Portland Timbers at home. There have also been draws at home against LA Galaxy and away to Colorado Rapids. The only defeat was at Los Angeles FC.

The stats show Minnesota United are unbeaten in 9 of their last 10 home matches in the MLS. Both teams have scored and there have been over 2.5 goals in each of their last 5 home league games.

FC Dallas make the trip to Allianz Field having lost 1-0 at Los Angeles FC last weekend in Major League Soccer. With the score 0-0 at halftime, FC Dallas were hopeful of taking a point from the game but conceded the only goal of the match in the 74th minute.

The victory came at Tampa Bay Rowdies in the US Open Cup and there have been draws against Houston Dynamo away and Real Salt Lake City at home in the MLS. There was also a 3-1 defeat at LA Galaxy in the league.

Trends show FC Dallas have recorded only 2 wins from their 21 most recent away trips in the MLS. FC Dallas have scored 6 goals in their last 10 away MLS games, failing to score more than a single goal in any of those 10 matches.

Team news and Minnesota United are without the injured duo of Franco Fragapane and Hugo Bacharach.

FC Dallas travel without three players as Paxton Pomykal, Alan Velasco, and Geovane Jesus miss out due to injury.

Looking at the recent statistics leads us to predict we will see over 2.5 goals in this match but FC Dallas struggle to score.

Minnesota United have been much the better team this season and with FC Dallas’ poor away record, we expect the hosts to win the game and keep a clean sheet.
