Minnesota United are an MLS Soccer team who compete in the competition’s Western Conference. Minnesota began playing in the MLS during the 2017 season, alongside Atlanta United FC, and are the 22nd MLS Club.
Home games are currently played at the Allianz Field Stadium in Saint Paul, which was finally finished after years of construction at the beginning of 2019, with the first game being held that same year, against New York City FC .
2022 marked a decent sixth season for Minnesota as they finished sixth in the Western Conference. They won 14 games and also lost 14 during the regular season due to a poor defensive line-up. Minnesota scored 48 goals in 34 regular season games.
Christian Ramirez was the one shining light for Minnesota in 2017, finishing as the club’s top scorer with 14 goals. Ramirez, however, was sold to Los Angeles FC in time during the 2018 campaign.
2018 was equally as frustrating for Minnesota United fans as they finished 10th in the Western Conference having conceded a competition-worst 71 goals. Minnesota ended the 2018 campaign on a run of two wins in 13 games, drawing two and losing nine, including falling to defeat in each of their final four games.
Thirty-one-year-old Colombian Carlos Quintero became Minnesota’s star player in 2018, scoring 11 goals in his debut MLS season, including the team’s first-ever hattrick in a 4-3 home win over Toronto FC.
Minnesota United’s soccer team has made it to the Playoffs for the fourth consecutive year in 2022, but they have lost in Round One in three out of the four years, and have never progressed beyond the Western Conference Semi-Finals.
As of 2023, the team’s hope to break the cycle of disappointing playoff runs depends on the performance of their Argentine star, Emanuel Reynoso. Reynoso is expected to take charge of Minnesota United’s offense and create havoc for their opponents’ defenders.
Minnesota United Next Game
Like most MLS teams, Minnesota United enjoy a much better record at home than they do on the road. Minnesota enjoyed 8 of their 14 victories at their Allianz Field Stadium home in 2022, so factor this into your decision-making if you are going to bet on Minnesota today.

Betting on Minnesota United
Minnesota United's coach, Adrian Heath, has previously challenged Reynoso to score more goals, and the midfielder did not disappoint the last season. He achieved a career-high 11 goals in the regular season, and his ability to penetrate defenses from anywhere is an asset for Minnesota.
If Reynoso can replicate his play from 2022, the Loons will be counting on him to help them break through the ceiling and advance further into the Playoffs this time around.
