In its last two games against FC Dallas and the Houston Dynamo, Minnesota United has struggled to get in the driver’s seat and stay there, shipping six goals while only managing one of its own. Whether you chalk it up to travel, heat, a hangover from Orlando, the general *waves hands* of 2020, or just the team not connecting quite right, everyone from Head Coach Adrian Heath on down to the bottom of the roster know they have to find a way to get back to the form that saw them go undefeated in 2020 through the semifinals of the MLS Is Back Tournament. The Loons face yet another familiar foe this weekend as they square up against Real Salt Lake, a team they fought to a scoreless draw in the Group Stage. In 20 minutes off the bench against Houston, new addition Emanuel Reynoso looked more than capable, and Heath and co. will be banking on him shaking off five months of rust sooner rather than later. Defender Bakaye Dibassy should also be available for selection soon, helping to shore up a backline still lacking Ike Opara. This will be just the team’s second home game of 2020, and Minnesota will surely be hoping that there’s nothing better than a little home cooking to snap a four-game losing streak.
Minnesota United’s main priority is the safety, health and well-being of our fans, players and staff. We are monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely, partnering with Major League Soccer and our local health officials, adhering to the Centers for Disease Control guidance, and communicating with other sports organizations in our area to help ensure a safe environment in our stadium. For the time being, games played at Allianz Field will be fanless, in accordance to best practices around the league, state law and advice from health care professionals.
