PT vs MU Dream11 Prediction: Minnesota United will look to extend their unbeaten run to six Major League Soccer games on Sunday, when they travel to take on Portland Timbers. The hosts picked up a point in a 2-2 draw with Houston Dynamo last time out, while Minnesota extended their strong run of form with a 2-0 win over Austin FC on Thursday.
Portland Timbers’ inconsistent start to the campaign continued inside the 90 minutes against Houston Dynamo in midweek;. They travelled to Texas and went two goals down in just over half-an hour but a second-half fight back saw them nick a point in stoppage time via Jeremy Ebobisse. That means they have won four, lost four and drawn one of their opening nine games. They come up against a Minnesota United side whose manager of four years, Adrian Heath, remains under slight pressure after a difficult 2021 in which they have collected just 11 points out of a possible 27. Despite Portland’s general inconsistency, they will still come into this match as the favourites for this one.
