Minnesota United odds: +160 – 37.7%

Draw odds: +240 – 24.0%

Columbus Crew odds: +152 – 38.3%

Despite the home-field advantage at Allianz Stadium, Minnesota United aren’t considered by the bookmakers as the expected winners, as coach Knowles’ side only has a 37.7% win probability at +160. Of course, this means the 2023 MLS winners have the three points up for grabs, with a 38.3% shot at the three points behind them this week.

Minnesota United vs Columbus Crew Lineups & Team News

Minnesota United

The Crew aren’t the only ones who began their 2024 journey in the proper fashion. Coach Knowles’ boys also did quite well to best Austin last week, as a 1-2 result was what we saw on the screen after 90 minutes of soccer.

Predicted lineup – St. Clair (GK), Rosales, Tapias, Boxall, Taylor, Trapp, Dotson, Lod, Jeong, Fragapane & Pukki

Columbus Crew

Cucho Hernandez opened his score tab for Columbus Crew in the 2024 campaign with a wonderful game-winning goal against Atlanta United. The match at Lower.com Field could’ve gone either way, as both teams enjoyed 50.0% ball possession.

Predicted lineup – Schulte (GK), Zawadzki, Camacho, Amundsen, Farsi, Nagbe, Morris, Yeboah, Rossi, Russell-Lowe & Hernandez

Player to Watch: Cucho Hernandez

Despite failing to join Columbus Crew for the start of the 2023 Major League Soccer campaign, Cucho Hernandes still managed to prove the critics wrong by becoming one of coach Wilfried Nancy’s key weapons. He was sharp in front of the goalkeepers as always, bagging a total of 21 goals in 33 league games, thus earning himself a 0.64 goalscoring record in Major League Soccer on his debut season! The only player to outscore him was Los Angeles’ Denis Bouanga, which is, of course, good news for our Minnesota United vs Columbus Crew predictions.
