Preview: Loons hope for goals amid showers against Crew

It’s probably gonna be a wet one, folks.

Minnesota United hosts the Columbus Crew on Saturday night in a match that will likely receive some Minnesota-quality weather.

Ignore the fact that it’s mid-May and prepare for a temperature in the 40’s with possible thunderstorms.

On the field, the Loons will face an Eastern Conference side that sits in 7th place, with 5 wins and a single draw. The Crew have just one win on the road, having lost four times.

Columbus is a weakened club through injury, with goalkeeper Zack Steffen and defenders Milton Valenzuela, Harrison Afful and Waylon Francis all listed as out.
