MLS action on Saturday as Minnesota and Houston meet at Allianz Field – 10:30pm GMT.

Houston will travel to Minnesota, as thirteenth plays fourth in the table.

With the MLS season well into its stride, Minnesota United have managed to gain 41 points

Minnesota come to this fixture on the back of a victory, having beaten Austin 2-1 at Allianz Field.

Also, Minnesota keep finding ways to win, having secured seven victories in their last 10 games is astonishing this season. Their position is fourth in the League and they have 41 points, that is, 0W, 0L and 0D.

When Minnesota host Houston, they will do so on the back of six wins, four darts, and three defeats on their own ground.

A win in this fixture, would take Minnesota United’s points from 41 to 44, so far this season.

Houston Dynamo have 26 points to their name, going into this tie

Houston’s pride is now at stake, as they will not wish for another successive poor result. They recently drew 1-1 away to Colorado Rapids, which followed the loss to Montréal. They will be eager to improve in this next fixture.

Also, Houston have now lost 13 of their last 19 meetings, a worrying statistic that has to be addressed by Manager Paulo Nagamura. With a thirteenth position in the league and 0 wins, 0 losses and 0 draws, they currently have 26 points in the League.

Houston now travel, knowing that their current away form is woeful. So far this season they have won three matches, drawn one game, and lost nine meetings matches on the road.

A victory for Houston Dynamo would put them on 29 points.
