NASL weekend preview: Edmonton, Minnesota chasing top spot


Everyone loves match week, though we know one NASL keeper who’s probably looking forward to it more than most in order to begin his road back from a horrible own goal.

At 2-1 to start the Fall Season, United get a Fort Lauderdale team that is struggling in form and also played at midweek, falling out of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup in the quarterfinals.

After staying home all week, Minnesota will hope to move keep pace with New York for the league lead.

The only side doing better in points-per-game is FC Edmonton, and the Eddies can pass third place Indy Eleven if they can handle their business down in the United States.

Miami FC at Carolina RailHawks
