DC United vs Minnesota United (By: TFB)
Round 29 of the MLS kicks off in the capitol as DC United welcome Minnesota United to the Audi Field.
DC, considered as one of the worst MLS sides in recent years have shown a significant improvement recently which coincided with the arrival of Wayne Rooney. Bottom of their conference when Rooney signed, DC United are now knocking on the door of the play-off spots.
Their fortunes look to have turned with some recent positive results like their 3-1 win against MLS favourites Atlanta. They also earned a 1-1 draw in New York in a match where they were very much outplayed.
DC welcome back Arriola to the squad but they will likely look to a growing partnership of Acosta and Rooney to provide the goods as they hope to build on their run of 5 wins in their last 6 home games.
Minnesota are in their 2nd season in the MLS after a disappointing debut. They have been slightly better this term but most of their good work is done on home soil. Away from home they are the worst in the whole of the MLS with just 6 points to their name.
