Minnesota United team news and form: Ramsay’s boys got lucky

Let’s face it – Minnesota United got extremely lucky to get a point at DSG Park last week. Yes, coach Ramsay’s boys are in 2nd place in the Western Conference, but with barely 25.0% possession in their previous away game, you can see why we give the edge to coach Peter Vermes’ boys.

Predicted lineup: St. Clair (GK), Rosales, Padelford, Boxall, Arriaga, Taylor, Lod, Trapp, Harvey, Jeong & Oluwaseyi

Sporting KC team news and form: Vermes must find a cure

Sporting Kansas City began their 2024 MLS journey with a couple of good results. Ever since then, the team has been dropping points left and right. Currently, Sporting Kansas City is at the bottom of the table, but we believe the visitors will get a result at Allianz Stadium on the 2nd of June.

Player to watch: Teemu Pukki

The Finish goalscoring veteran is proving to be a valuable player for coach Ramsay. Yes, he only scored on two occasions in 2024, but his overall contribution is what counts. He’s the sort of player who comes back deep to get the ball, distributes passes, and is generally involved in all areas of attack.

Pukki could cause issues

The fans are surely demanding more from the former Norwich star, however. Teemu Pukki is starting to feel the pressure to score, which might be beneficial to our Minnesota United vs Sporting KC predictions.
