Preview: A victory last week in Edmonton moved Minnesota into a tie for third place in the North American Soccer League standings with 11 points. United’s remaining schedule looks kind; the team plays four home matches, more than any NASL team. However, United has yet to win in Blaine this season, having lost twice and tied twice.

United FC at a glance: Offensive pressure led to goals from Calum Mallace and Simone Bracalello in Edmonton. The priority now shifts to winning at home. “We have unfortunately dropped some points at home where we maybe should have won,” United coach Manny Lagos said. “And now we really have to show that we can become a good home team.”

San Antonio at a glance: The Scorpions recorded their first victory of the fall season last week, beating Carolina 2-1 on Hans Denissen’s penalty kick in stoppage time. San Antonio has posted a victory, loss and draw against Minnesota in three previous meetings this season.
