Minnesota United hung on for a 2-0 win over Houston Dynamo, earning Franco Fragapane a spot on the bench in the MLS Team of the Week presented by Audi for Week 27.

Last week, the Argentine provided two crucial assists to give Minnesota their first-ever win over the LA Galaxy. This week, he provided his sixth assist of the season for MNUFC. In the first minute of the game, the midfielder slid a perfect near-post through ball to teammate Robin Lod to put the Loons up 1-0 against Houston. It was the quickest goal Minnesota has scored in MLS. In his 83 minutes, Fragapane had an 86.7% passing rate.
