DC United 4/7 to beat Minnesota United in Thursdays MLS matchup
Market: DC United win
Odds: 4/7 @ Bet 365
Now just five points adrift of the playoffs in the Eastern Conference, DC United will be looking to carry on their eye-catching run of form at Audi Field when they host Minnesota United on Thursday.
Starting with the hosts, although it was a tough start to the new campaign for DC United, The Blacks have done an impressive job of climbing up the Eastern Conference. After 26 MLS games this season, DC have won eight, drawn seven and lost 11, scoring 43 and conceding 44 in return. With one game in hand, DC are now just five points adrift of the Top Six and their recent form at home has continued to gain plenty of plaudits. Now winning five of their last six matches at their new 20,000 seater stadium, United have also scored 13 in their last four victories.
As for the visitors, although they showed some signs of life earlier in the year, Minnesota have slipped back to their old ways. In 26 MLS matches this season, United have won nine, drawn two and lost 15, scoring 38 and conceding 52 in return, they hold the worst defensive record in either the Eastern or Western Conference. Now 11 points adrift of the playoffs, another year outside of the Top Six has all but been confirmed. As for their recent form, Minnesota are without a win in their last five MLS matches, losing four of those outings. Along with failing to find the net in their last two, United have also shipped 12 goals in their winless run.
