Minnesota United FC         

Right now, Minnesota United FC is sitting on a 9-1-13 record that ranks them 9th in the Western Conference of the MLS. Since they’re 9th in the conference, Minnesota would have to jump up three spots to get into the playoffs. But since Minnesota United FC is 6-points away from the 6th seeded Real Salt Lake, it doesn’t look like they’ll be making a push anytime soon. Especially since the club is sitting on a -10 goal differential on the year. Nevertheless, Minnesota is hopeful that they can get a road upset in this Saturday night pairing. Tonight’s matchup will be the first time this season these two clubs have crossed paths.

Players to Watch: Darwin Quintero (18 GP, 10 G, 6 A), Christian Ramirez (20 GP, 7 G, 2 A), and Miguel Ibarra (22 GP, 6 G, 6 A).

LA Galaxy

The Galaxy leap into this weekend’s pairing flashing a 10-5-8 record that ranks them 5th in the Western Conference of the MLS. Coming off a 2-1 loss to the Colorado Rapids, LA is looking to return to its winning form. Right now the club is 7-points behind the conference leading FC Dallas. And although they’re in the running for a spot in the postseason, the franchise will want to solidify their playoff spot. Since they’re playing at home against a weaker opponent, it comes as no surprise to see them pegged as a heavy online soccer betting favorite in this one.

Players to Watch: Zlatan Ibrahimovic (17 GP, 15 G, 4 A), Ola Kamara (20 GP, 9 G, 1 A), and Romain Alessandrini (18 GP, 7 G, 5 A).
