LAF vs MU Dream11 Prediction | Major League Soccer | Los Angeles FC vs Minnesota United, Fantasy Team News

LAF vs MU Dream11 Match Preview, Team News, Lineups

If the regular season is anything to go by, Los Angeles FC are walking on a seemingly inexorable path towards the glory. But the post-season can be a different animal altogether, with any team, irrespective of the position on the table, very much capable of beating any team in a two-leg tie.

But a deep run, at least the semi-finals, can be expected from Bob Bradley's men. Anything other than that will be considered an utter travesty to the consistency the team has shown so far in the regular season.

Minnesota United, meanwhile, can use a positive result here after Portland Timbers' 1-0 win over Real Salt Lake cut the deficit between the teams to just two points.

Match Details:

The Major League Soccer match will be played between Los Angeles FC and Minnesota United at Banc of California Stadium, in Los Angeles, California. The ground has a capacity of 22,000.
The game will start at 05:05 PM (IST), on Saturday, August 20.
