Minnesota United vs Portland Timbers verdict

Despite being winless in five matches, things are looking up for Minnesota. The Loons confirmed the signing of Teemu Pukki this week and a natural goalscorer should help.
Part of the reason for their lack of goals has been the lack of chance creation. They're far behind the league average and the sole reason is Emanuel Reynoso's absence.
He's been building his fitness up in recent games, playing 25 minutes, 45 minutes and finally starting in the 2-2 draw in Salt Lake. He scored and created a chance in that match.
Despite playing just 160 minutes after a long layoff, Reynoso has already produced three potential assists and should transform how Minnesota play.
Bongokuhle Hlongwane and Jeong Sang-Bin have are direct players with pace and their clever movement from outside to in should give the playmaker a target.
Portland will be seeking revenge for Minnesota beating them 1-0 on their own patch, but they've struggled on the road and this is the right moment for United to get back on track.
The Timbers have scored four goals in their last eight outings and there's reason to believe they could be shut out again here.
Lacking creativity and goals, the Minnesota defence has stepped up. No home team has a better xG against tally than them at Allianz Field and the addition of goals will see them win some games.
