Preview: With four matches left, United’s playoff hopes are slim. An opportunity was missed last week as United lost at home to North American Soccer League-leading New York and dropped seven points behind the Cosmos. One of four teams tied for second-place with 14 points, Minnesota hopes to continue its success away from home. Three of United’s four fall season victories have come on the road.

United FC at a glance: Moral victories and draws simply won’t do any longer. Minnesota must win out and hope New York stumbles. One element in Minnesota’s favor is improved defense. United, one of four teams tied for fewest goals allowed (10) in the fall season, gave up three goals in four September matches.

Atlanta at a glance: The Silverbacks clinched the right to host the Soccer Bowl with a 3-0 victory on Minnesota’s home field in the final match of the spring season. And they started the fall season by beating Minnesota 1-0 in Blaine once again.
