Allianz Field — St. Paul

STREAMING:MLS LIVE on ESPN+ in US, on DAZN in Canada

Minnesota United FC are looking to extend their unbeaten streak at Allianz Field and hope to hear Oasis' "Wonderwall" after the final whistle when they host Columbus Crew SC Saturday night in St. Paul.

The Loons (4-4-3) are looking to bounce back from a 2-0 loss at Chicago in Week 11 and have scored just one goal, off the head of defender Ike Opara, in two games without a win.

Crew SC (5-7-1) sit just above the playoff line in the Eastern Conference after a rollercoaster week that saw them snap a five-match losing streak with an impressive 3-1 victory over the LA Galaxy, but then fell at MAPFRE Stadium 3-0 to LAFC on Saturday. 

This is the third all-time meeting, with Crew SC winning the previous two, including 1-0 at TFC Bank Stadium in Minneapolis on the Fourth of July two years ago.
