New York City vs Minnesota United Lineups & Team News

New York City

New York City’s Nick Cushing was appointed as head manager on the 10th of November, 2022, so he doesn’t have an official game against Minnesota United just yet. This will be his first rodeo, but we are sure that our New York City vs Minnesota United predictions will succeed, giving the English coach his first-ever win over this opponent.

Predicted lineup – Freese (GK), Chanot, Cufre, Martins, Gray, Sands, Parks, Ledezma, Rodriguez, Jasson & Bakrar

Minnesota United

On the other hand, we have Adrian Heath who has faced New York City on multiple occasions. His 3-3-3 record doesn’t suggest something spectacular at Yankee Stadium on Sunday. Especially, if his boys behave the way they did against Nashville. The game at GEODIS Park ended 5-0 in favor of the home team, and Hany Mukhtar could’ve scored more if he had been a tad more precise with his finishing.

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

Player to Watch: Teemu Pukki

Finnish goalscorer Teemu Pukki made a name for himself with Premier League’s Norwich. In the 198 official appearances for the club, the striker scored an astonishing 87 goals! Before that, Pukki was strutting his stuff at Brondby where he scored 46 times.

Today, Teemu Pukki is trying to help Minnesota United reach the next stage of MLS soccer. However, the 33-year-old striker doesn’t seem that big a threat to our New York City vs Minnesota United predictions, as we expect him to have a rather poor game on Sunday.
