Loons look likely to blank opponents again

Minnesota United can go back above Portland Timbers in the Eastern Conference playoff race if they beat them for a second time in a month this weekend.

The Loons came away from the Pacific Northwest with all three points in late June when an early Adrien Hunou goal was enough to secure a 1-0 road success.

That has largely been the formula for Adrian Heath’s men this term with all five of their MLS victories accompanied by clean sheets.

They have been behind for just 30 minutes of play in their last five home games – in stark contrast to the Timbers’ recent away record.

Portland come into this game following two straight home wins, but they have picked up only four points from the last 18 on offer while on the road.

Awful starts have been a recurring theme during that spell with Giovanni Savarese’s side two goals down at the break twice and three goals down by the interval on one occasion.

But Minnesota are not the sort of team to go for the jugular once ahead with Heath’s men having scored more than one goal in just three of 13 games.

All this is pointing in the direction of another Minnesota win to nil – but another profitable route could be to back the Loons to lead at HT as well as FT.

Portland have conceded first half goals in eight of their 13 MLS games this term and we like the chances of this being another.
