Why you should back Minnesota United
The Loons are coming off a 3-1 victory against Vancouver on Friday in which they fell behind in the second half before erupting late for three goals in a 17-minute span. Defender Kemar Lawrence began the spurt in the 71st minute and forward Luis Amarilla followed with his second tally in two matches before winger Franco Fragapane capped the outburst with his second in three contests. The 26-year-old Amarilla has scored three of his five goals this season over his last four games.
Emanuel Reynoso leads Minnesota with a career-high seven goals and is tied for first on the club with three assists. The 26-year-old midfielder amassed six goals in 42 matches over his first two MLS campaigns. Reynoso was kept off the scoresheet by Vancouver after posting back-to-back two-goal performances in triumphs over the Galaxy and Real Salt Lake.

The Wizards also posted a comeback victory in their last contest, a 2-1 win against CF Montreal on Saturday. Sporting KC fell behind just 13 minutes into the match but drew even on 35-year-old midfielder Roger Espinoza’s second goal of the season and first in 14 contests. Midfielder Remi Walter snapped the deadlock in the 63rd minute and the Wizards held on for their second win in seven road games this year.
