TFC Prediction League: Round 12 (vs. Minnesota United)

MLS: Sporting KC at Minnesota United FC Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

It turns out Minnesota United may not be so bad after all.

They may be unlikely to make the playoffs in their first year in MLS, and they may even still finish last. The Loons have established over the past few weeks, though, that they will not be the laughing stock of the league in their inaugural season.

That seemed a very real possibility when they began the campaign with a 5-1 defeat to the Portland Timbers and 6-1 loss against Atlanta United, followed by a 5-2 reverse at the New England Revolution a couple of weeks later. Since then, though, Minnesota have lost only two of six games and were embarrassed in neither, picking up three wins and a respectable 2-2 draw in Houston in the rest of that span.

Toronto can still be considered significant favourites today at BMO Field, but Adrian Heath has steadied the ship and is not without threats at the attacking end. Christian Ramirez has six goals to his name in 10 appearances and rookie Abu Danladi netted his first in an impressive 2-0 triumph over Sporting Kansas City last time out.

A lot of you had faith in TFC to do the job in Columbus, which they eventually did. That has created a fair bit of congestion at the top of our leaderboard going into this one but Mike Whaley still has a one-point edge in first place.

As always, leave your score prediction in the comments and we’ll do the rest. It’s two points for the correct outcome and one each for predicting the number of goals the two teams will score.
