Major Soccer League
In the mix conference clash of the Major Soccer League, we have the 8th placed D C United of the Eastern Conference is hosting the 9th placed Minnesota United of the Western Conference. D C United’s hope for the play-offs was rekindled when they brought along Wayne Rooney in their squad and he had delivered for his team with his mind blowing assists and set pieces. D C United has played 26 matches in this season so far and they have registered 8 wins and 7 draws while losing 11 of them. They have secured 31 points and they would be taking on Minnesota United at home for the first of seven straight home matches they would be playing from now on. Their last game at Yankee Stadium didn’t go as plan as their clash with New York City FC went for a draw and they could only bag one point when they could have bagged the total match points. They were unlucky to miss out on many players to injury and international duties in the last game but they were fortunate enough to come within the five range point for play-offs. They had the lead against New York City FC in the 56th minute but conceded the equalizer in 86th minute from a David Villa free kick. They would be starting as favourites in this game and would like to kick off their seven matches at home campaign with a win.
The visitors on the other hand are not having a great season and that reflected in their last game against Sporting Kansas City. They lost the game 2-0 on their away trip and as they now head into DC, their biggest concern would be not to repeat the same result of the last game. Of the 26 matches they have played in this season, they could manage to win only 9 of them losing 15 on the process and drawing 2 to help them bag 29 points in this league. However, their biggest concern has been their weak defense which saw them already conceding over 50+ goals and there are still some game time left. The visitors are not to be discarded because unlike their last clash, they are going to have a full squad and they can easily make all the necessary changes in the team sheet that would save them from further humiliation.

Head 2 Head- 1 official meeting
DC United- 0
Minnesota United- 1
Draw – 0
DC United– Wayne Rooney
Minnesota United– Darwin Quintero
In Team 1, we have opted for the DC United goalie since DC united would be playing at home and have been in great form at home, it is safe to have their goal keeper Bill Hamid.
DC United would be starting as favourites so we have picked most players from D C United as our fantasy picks in these two teams.
In defense Steve Birnbaum will be the key as he was exceptional in the last game and we are expecting him to do well in this game.
Luciano Acosta in the midfield is a great option as he has already contributed with 7 goals and 9 assists so far in the Major Soccer League for Minnesota United.
Up front, Wayner Rooney has been appointed vice captain because he has already provided 6 assists and 4 goals in the 10 matches he just played in the league.
Darwin Quintero, the Colombian national has been appointed as captain because he has been the key man for Minnesota with 10 goals and 7 assists pinned to his name.
In Team 2, having Bobby Shuttleworth is a bit of a gamble given the visitors turn around the game in their favour and he could be the key goal keeper in this game.
The second change that we have made in this team is to bring in Darren Mattocks at Angelo Rodriguez expenses because Darren Mattocks has been the leading goal scorer for DC United and it would be a safe bet to have him on the team.
We are hopeful that D C United would have the last laugh after this clash because they have been in great form at home. They have won five of their last six home matches in Major Soccer League and also scored at least 2 goals in five of those games.
