We said: Minnesota United 1-2 Columbus Crew

Minnesota are embarking on a new era under the up-and-coming coach Ramsay, whereas Columbus are a much more settled outfit under Nancy after lifting the MLS Cup last season. As such, we can envisage an away victory for the reigning champions, but it should be an interesting clash nonetheless between two managers who prefer to play on the front foot. Read more.
