Minnesota United FC returns home for the first time since October 2013 as it faces FC Edmonton at NSC Stadium.  Minnesota is coming off a 2-1 win over host Ottawa Fury FC last week, while Edmonton dropped a 1-0 encounter against the visiting New York Cosmos.  United, who has a four-game winning streak, has never lost to the Eddies in six previous meetings in Minnesota.  The last time both clubs faced off was on September 22, 2013 when goals from Calum Mallace and forward Simone Bracalello gave the visiting United a 2-1 triumph over the Eddies at Clarke Stadium.

Coaches quotes:
“We are excited to finally get the chance to play in front of our home fans. I hope they are excited to get a chance to see the product that we have worked really hard to put together on the field this Saturday. We are looking forward to the challenge of defending our home field this season.” – United coach Manny Lagos

“I’m well aware it will be a difficult task for us against Minnesota on Saturday. We know it’ll be a difficult game for us, but it’ll be difficult for Minnesota as well. They’re a very experienced team, well coached, and prepared. They’re a good club, but now it’s more about getting our house in order.” – FC Edmonton coach Colin Miller
