Minnesota United climb up a spot to 6th place in the Western Conference after a comeback victory over the Philadelphia Union last night in Saint Paul. It was a game that had a number of thrilling and intense moments throughout its duration. Minnesota held on for the win despite loosing defender Romain Métanire to a red card in the 77th minute.

The Loons will host LAFC on Saturday as they look to keep their grasp on a playoff spot as only four more games remain in the 2021 season.
