Minnesota United: “No One Gives us a Chance”

Debutant Finalists Minnesota United are embracing the role of underdog in the build-up to the 2019 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup decider against MLS champions Atlanta United at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Tuesday August 27 (coverage starts on ESPN+ at 7:45 p.m. ET). Coach Adrian Heath and four-time Open Cup winner Ozzie Alonso have firm belief in a Loons side that have turned around a reputation for underachieving in the previous two seasons and see no reason why the North Country boys can’t get the better of an Atlanta United who’ve been gobbling up trophies at a gluttonous clip since joining Major League Soccer in 2017 (the same year as Minnesota United).
