NEW YORK — Minnesota United will christen their new soccer-specific stadium, Allianz Field, on Saturday against New York City FC. The Athletic Minnesota writer, Jeff Rueter, gives an audio tour of the facility and a detailed scouting report on the surprising Loons. Meanwhile, NYCFC captain Alex Ring laments the lack of goals for his club as they try to snap a five-game winless streak to start 2019.
“Our inefficiency is taking a toll on us. At the moment we’re making the wrong decisions in the final third. Maybe a little bit of luck as well. In Finland we say ‘to open up the ketchup bottle.” We are going to keep on trying and I know it will happen for us.” – Alex Ring
