The Toros are unbeaten in their previous two matches, while Minnesota came away with their first win of the season on Wednesday, defeating the Whitecaps 1-0.
In their fifth season in MLS, things could not be going much worse for Minnesota, who have fought hard in every game this season, but they have only one win to show for it.
Adrian Heath has seen his side compete in nearly all of their matches so far, and he will be encouraged to see them squeak out a 1-0 win in midweek after losing three straight games by a single goal.
Resiliency has been an issue for this team in 2021, as they have failed to answer back after conceding a goal in each of their defeats to this point of the season.
Minnesota have struggled to maintain a high level of play for 90 minutes, which is why they are sitting in the basement of the MLS Western Conference.
Striker Ramon Abila, who is currently on loan from Boca Juniors, made his first contribution of the season on Wednesday, heading home the only goal for The Loons against one of the best keepers in MLS in Maxime Crepeau.
So far in 2021, we have seen two very different Dallas teams throughout their opening four matches.
At home, they have looked great, going unbeaten in their three games at Toyota Stadium, scoring five times and conceding only once.
On the road, Luchi Gonzalez and his side have a lot of work to do after being dominated at times in their 3-1 defeat to the Earthquakes, conceding twice in 10 minutes in the second half.
Down the 2020 regular-season stretch, The Toros struggled away from home, winning just one of their last four encounters on the road, including a 3-0 defeat to Minnesota in their final regular-season game.
Their big off-season acquisition, Jader Obrian, has scored in his last two games, including the winner against Portland and the equaliser in the Texas derby last Saturday versus the Houston Dynamo.
Minnesota United possible starting lineup:
Miller; Gasper, Raitala, Boxall, Metanire; Alonso, Trapp; Reynoso, Finlay, Dotson; Lod
Dallas possible starting lineup:
Phelipe; Munjoma, Bressan, Martinez, Hollingshead; Acosta, Tessmann; Obrian, Ricaurte, Vargas; Pepi
We say: Minnesota United 3-1 Dallas
Traditionally when these teams play each other, we see plenty of offence, with 20 goals scored between each side over their past four regular-season encounters.
Minnesota have played well and could be due for another good result, and this could be the game to get it, as they have won their last three regular-season home games played against The Toros, scoring seven times and conceding only twice.
