Minnesota United is coming off a tough loss against Indy Eleven, but the club returns to where it has been dominant in 2016: NSC Stadium. The Loons (4-1-2, 13) have won all three of their home games without conceding a single goal. Christian Ramirez has found the back of the net four times this season, as last year's Golden Boot and Golden Ball winner, Stefano Pinho, is starting to hit top stride with goals in back-to-back-games. Defender Kevin Venegas has continued his strong play in both attacking and defensive situations, but his fellow outside back, Justin Davis, will miss out on Saturday after picking up two yellow cards last game.

The Tampa Bay Rowdies (2-3-2, 9) are coming off a tough loss to the New York Cosmos, but they have certainly been buoyed by the addition of Joe Cole. The English veteran has jumped right into the fray and has put in two active performances. Midfielder Kalif Alhassan, who scored four goals in 28 appearances for the Loons, returns to Minnesota for the first time since swapping teams in the offseason.
