Game Preview

Despite participating in their first season in the MLS this term, St Louis City already appears to be one of the standout contenders for a playoff place. They have started the 2023 campaign in excellent form after winning each of their opening five matches in the Western Conference.

That excellent start sees them top the conference standings at this early stage. They have scored more goals than any other team in the West, while they boast the third-best defensive record. St. Louis maintained their stunning start last weekend, with a 4-0 away win against Real Salt Lake.

Minnesota is the visitor to St. Louis this weekend, and they have also made a reliable start to the 2023 campaign. They currently sit fourth in the standings, and are one of three teams still boasting an unbeaten record. However, they have picked up two wins and two draws from their opening four matches.

The visitors this weekend were held to a second draw of the season last weekend. Minnesota went ahead after 40 minutes, but they were pegged back in dramatic fashion, as Vancouver netted an equalizer in the eighth minute of injury time.


This should be a high-quality showdown in the Western Conference on Saturday evening. However, we will be siding with the in-form hosts, as St. Louis was excellent in their previous game, and we expect them to maintain that momentum.
