Q2 Stadium sees Sunday action as Austin take on Minnesota – 4:00am GMT.

Visitors Minnesota, will be keen to maintain or improve their League position, (seventh), when they face thirteenth placed Austin.

Austin’s Major League Soccer season, has so far seen them gain 25 points, going into this game

Austin come to this match on the back of a victory, having beaten Real Salt Lake 2-1 at Q2 Stadium.

Austin need to get out of the losing habit, with 11 recorded in the last 15 games. Their position is thirteenth in the League, and they have 25 points having won seven meetings, drawn four games, and lost 17 fixtures.

When Austin host Minnesota, they will do so on the back of five victories and two darts on their own ground.

Winning this fixture will see Austin on 28 points.

With the Major League Soccer season well into its stride, Minnesota United have managed to gain 38 points

Minnesota’s recent run of poor form will be worrying for manager Adrián Heath, with a 0-0 draw to FC Dallas in their last fixture, which followed a defeat to D.C. United. The Loons will be fired up for this next match, but mustn’t throw caution to the wind.

They currently stand seventh in the League, with 38 points having won 10 matches, drawn eight fixtures, and lost nine meetings.

Minnesota have had a disappointing run of performances on the road, having won two games, drawn six games, and lost six matches of their 14 League matches playing away this season.

A win in this fixture, would take Minnesota United’s points from 38 to 41, so far this season.

Austin v Minnesota United – Head-to-Heads.

These two sides have met two times before this fixture, with each recording wins on one occasions. Additionally, home advantage has clearly been a huge positive factor for Austin in this fixture, as they have not lost to Minnesota on the last one game. The last time they played each other in this competition was June 2021, when Los Verdes walked away as 2-0 winners.
