Full time: LAFC 0, Minnesota United 2. LAFC lay an egg with Vela out. Thanks for following along, we’ll have more coverage coming soon.
46th minute: Bob Bradley makes a double switch, bringing on Mohamed El-Munir for Jordan Harvey and Mark-Anthony Kaye enters for Brian Rodriguez. You figure Latif Blessing will push up into the attacking three for LAFC as a result.
29th minute: Goal Minnesota. Toye again, with a total blast that is unstoppable. Now a 2-0 hole for LAFC.
25th minute: Goal Minnesota. Mason Toye drags multiple LAFC defenders his way but finishes from a tight angle anyway. LAFC need to get back into it.

Los Angeles Football Club will host Minnesota United at The Banc on Sunday night.
After last week’s draw with the Galaxy, Bob Bradley’s squad will look to regain the form that carried LAFC to the top of the table. Standing in the way is Adrian Heath’s Minnesota United squad.
MNUFC has put together an impressive season thus far, putting together a record of 12-6-9, totaling 42 points, landing the squad in 7th place.
Forward Darwin Quintero has led the charge, contributing eight goals and five assists. The emergence of Slovak international midfielder Ján Greguš has also been key to the success of Heath’s squad. His passing skills and defensive versatility have allowed Minnesota United to attack without leaving vulnerable gaps in the midfield.
Bookmakers currently favor LAFC at (-290), while listing Minnesota United as road underdogs (+650). The odds for a draw are currently listed at (+425) (Via Bovada).
