Minnesota United -0.5

Two teams that are coming off opposite results mid-week will lock horns on Sunday, when Minnesota United will host Real Salt Lake. Minnesota United didn’t have much luck against Houston, while Real Salt Lake did great to overcome San Jose.
Real Salt Lake (14-11-4) did not play a very pretty match against San Jose, but did great to score the only goal of the match at the 75th minute and grabbed all three points. They have been in really good shape lately, and that was their fifth win in their last seven matches (5-2-0). Real Salt Lake are sitting at the 2nd spot of the Western Conference with 46 points, one ahead of Minnesota. However, they are not very good on the road this season (3-8-3) and have won just once in the past seven matches (1-4-2).
Minnesota United (13-10-6) will surely be frustrated about their 0-2 loss on the road against Houston, as they actually played better than their opponents. That confirmed that they have not had much luck lately, winning just one of their last five matches in all competitions (1-3-1). Minnesota United are sitting 4th in the Conference with 45 points, one behind Seattle and Real Salt Lake. Their home record is a respectable 8-1-5, and they are undefeated in their last five there (3-0-2).
Minnesota United have been terrific in this match-up over the years (4-1-2) but kept just one clean sheet in the process. They have won both previous matches in this venue, but both matches had goals from both sides and at least five goals in total. Going with Minnesota United to cover the spread here, and I also expect goals.
