With their 4 point advantage in the league table, Minnesota United fans are hoping to see their team collect maximum points from this game against Houston Dynamo.

There has not been much time to rest for the guests, as they played a Major League Soccer game only four days ago.

Houston Dynamo have a very long trip to this away game, as there's more than 1900 kilometers in distance to cover. This could prove a challenge, at least for the supporters.
