Columbus Crew vs Minnesota United Lineups & Team News

Columbus Crew

You have to give it to the Crew – they are the most enjoyable side to watch in MLS this season. In 12 of Columbus Crew’s last 13 games, we saw goals galore! Not many teams have that sort of record to brag with.

Predicted lineup – Schulte (GK), Zawadzki, Amundsen, Moreira, Frei, Nagbe, Morris, Yeboah, Matan, Hernandez & Ramirez

Minnesota United

The good news we can give coach Heath is that his boys scored six goals in two Leagues Cup matches! The bad news is that those goals were scored against lackluster opponents such as Chicago Fire and Puebla. Columbus Crew will prove to be a tougher opponent than that.

Predicted lineup – Clair (GK), Taylor, Dibassy, Tapias, Valentin, Arriaga, Trapp, Hlongwane, Reynoso, Dotson & Pukki

Player to Watch: Cucho Hernandez

Fan-favorite Cucho Hernandez is under the spotlight in our Columbus Crew vs Minnesota United prediction for multiple reasons. First of all, he swiftly adapted to his new surroundings, and we now see him scoring way more frequently.

Second of all, he’s one of the most experienced players that coach Nancy has at his disposal. Surely, he’ll try to utilize him on Saturday. After all, Hernandez did score five goals for the Crew in MLS alone. He deserves more chances among the starters now that Lucas Zelarayan was transferred to the Saudi Pro League.
