Toronto FC vs Minnesota United Prediction & Betting Odds
April 18, 2019
Toronto FC meet Minnesota United in MLS action at BMO Field on Friday night.
The Reds come into this game after having suffered their first league defeat of the season in losing an entertaining game 3-2 to Seattle Sounders at CenturyLink Field last weekend.
After starting the season with five consecutive games on the road, the Loons opened their Allianz Field stadium last weekend with a 3-3 draw against New York City FC, in a game that saw five goals in the opening 32 minutes.
Toronto FC vs Minnesota United Preview
These two teams have only met twice previously, with both games featuring plenty of goals. Toronto FC claimed a 3-2 victory in the first ever meeting in 2017, with Minnesota United gaining revenge with a 4-3 win at home last year.
Toronto’s home-field advantage has to be a significant factor in any MLS soccer predictions for this game, although Minnesota has had some success in their long run of road games at the start of the current season.
There is also plenty of high quality players, some of whom have title-winning experience, in the Toronto squad, which could make a difference here against what is still a relatively inexperienced franchise.
