Hype: MNUFC vs. Houston Dynamo

Following two postponed games due to positive and/or inconclusive COVID-19 tests, Minnesota United prepare to host Houston Dynamo at Allianz Field on Sunday. In a season that’s already been turned upside down and in which the Loons have had to deal with injuries to key starters, more absences due to coronavirus will hit even harder. While Houston have been a notoriously tough out in their house — MNUFC have only taken two points in six trips to Space City — the Dynamo have been paper tigers in the Twin Cities, having taken just one point from three visits. If there’s a silver lining to missing two games, it could be an extra spell of rest for players like Ethan Finlay, Kevin Molino, Osvaldo Alonso and anyone else who’s freshly back from or about to come back from injury.
