MNUFC will look to pounce on a Colorado team that is lagging behind in match fitness due to a month without matches

Minnesota United start the final two weeks and four games of the shortened 2020 MLS season tonight against Colorado Rapids This home clash is one both teams really want and need to win The Loons have only two wins since mid -September and seek to right the ship in terms of points Colorado, on the other hand, is coming out of an entirely different scenario due to match cancellations due to a COVID-19 outbreak

Minnesota partially got back on track last month, dropping from a 2-5-1 record after the MLS Is Back tournament until the end of September As of 9/27, which is also the five last of the Loons, the squad are now 2-0-3 in this stretch A healthy improvement over what they were before One problem the club always have is scoring goals And with Kei Kamara missing today in due to a « Gentleman’s Agreement » between the clubs, it does not look good on the Minnesota attack

Colorado, meanwhile, are in a very strange situation Their form in the last five games is 3-0-2 but that number is extremely misleading Colorado was 3-0-1 in September , but then had literally months of games canceled or postponed due to a COVID-19 outbreak The Rapids have only played one game since returning to the league This game was a 4-0 loss to Sporting Kansas City last Saturday night

You can read Coach Steve’s scout report from yesterday to get a better view of the loons’ next enemy

As noted above, Colorado is currently in a tough spot with a COVID outbreak, an entire month of postponed or canceled matches Not ideal for the Rapids However, while acknowledging that Heath is not underestimating not the team for tonight either

« It has been a very difficult stage for them There is no escaping it But, they will obviously be better for this weekend game Obviously, going to Kansas is never easy, c is a very, very good team The standings don’t lie, that’s why they’re at the top of the table It was always going to be a kind of baptism by fire, if you will, for them to recover Not just back , but back on the road to Kansas I think they’ll be better in those 90 minutes under their belt And Robin [Fraser] has done a great job since he’s been here We expect them to come and be difficult because they are in a situation like ours where every point is now precious during these last small weeks of the season »

Ján Greguš returned from international service on Saturday against FC Cincinnati and is expected to continue to have an impact for the Loons

Hassani Dotson is still out tonight after injuring his ankle against the Houston Dynamo, his return at the moment is unknown

According to Jeff Reuter, Athletic’s Minnesota United signed LB Sam Gleadle to the team Gleadle played for Reno 1868 this season in the USL Championship and has also already started a mandatory 10-day quarantine He would be cleared to join the club for the Decision Day final on November 8 against FC Dallas

As previously reported, Kei Kamara will not be eligible to play tonight against Colorado Rapids This is due to a « gentleman’s agreement » between the clubs he would not play in the league game Adrian Heath said yesterday:

« Kei is not available for tomorrow because it was a deal we made with Colorado when we took him that he would not play in the Championship game But if we were to play them in the playoffs, he would be eligible « 

This almost certainly means Aaron Schoenfeld will move up to 9th place at the top of the roster
