Austin FC v Los Angeles Football Club: Western Conference Finals - 2022 MLS Cup Playoffs
Austin and Minnesota square off in the MLS on Wednesday.

The MLS returns with a fresh set of fixtures as Austin FC and Minnesota United go head-to-head at the Q2 Stadium on Wednesday (May 31).

Both sides head into the midweek clash without a win in their last two outings and will look to arrest their slump. Austin were left empty handed for the second game, as they fell to a 2-1 loss against Houston Dynamo on Saturday.

Before that, Josh Wolff’s side saw their two-game winning streak come to an end on May 25, losing 2-0 to Chicago Fire in the US Open Cup last 16. With 16 points from 14 games, Los Verdes are tenth in the Western Conference, level on points with Portland Timbers and Real Salt Lake.

Meanwhile, Minnesota failed to return to winning ways last time out, as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Real Salt Lake at Allianz Field. The Loons were sent packing from the US Open Cup in their previous outing, following a humiliating 4-0 defeat against Houston Dynamo.

Adrian Heath have picked up 19 points from 14 MLS games to sit sixth in the Western Conference, level on points with fifth-placed San Jose Earthquakes.
