Minnesota Stars

One of the strengths of Columbus is their reliable defense. At their gates, the team acts flawlessly at this tournament . In general, the team conceded only in three meetings out of the last ten. “Minnesota”, of course, taught us to be effective. Guys love to spend time in attack and score a lot.


Caleb Porter's team has shown fantastic results in the group stage. Not only did the club show one hundred percent result and scored nine points, but also did not concede a single goal.

In the first match, Columbus defeated Cincinnati (4-0), followed by a victory over the New York Red Bulls (2-0) and in the last meeting, Atlanta was minimally beaten (1-0). The star trio Yunnes Mokhtar, Lukas Zelarayan and Gyasi Zardes have already hammered seven goals and are the main threat to their opponents.

With such a pace, a team from Ohio can even aim for a championship, although first you need to start small and reach the quarterfinals.

Minnesota Stars

The club from the city of St. Paul also showed their best side, as they did not lose a single match after the restart of the season. United moved out of the group from second place, with five points to their credit.

Minnesota kicked off the group stage with a tough win over Sporting CP (2-1), with two important goals scored in extra minutes. In the next meeting the team shared points with Real Salt Lake (0-0) and played a successful draw with Colorado (2-2).

Adrian Heath's wards are not very successful in personal confrontations against Columbus, but at the 1/8 finals there will be only one match, so they can already gather their strength and show a decent game.


Columbus Crew have shown what they are capable of in the group stage, when they won three confident victories in a row and are unlikely to stop there. Minnesota United did not look so confident, but they also deserve praise.

In our opinion, guys of Caleb Porter are approaching the confrontation in the best shape, so there are more chances of reaching the quarterfinals, which, in principle, we propose to bet on.

Our prediction is Columbus Crew's passing at odds of 1.61 in 1xBet
