The Minnesota United vs Colorado Rapids fixture has grown to be one often fraught with cards and drama. The latest edition was no different as the game became a feisty affair.

A total of six yellow cards were issued during the game along with 16 fouls. The red card that was issued to Jack Price was downgraded to a yellow after a VAR review.

Minnesota United came out the victors by a score of 3-1 with goals from Bakaye Dibassy, Robin Lod and Abu Danladi. MNUFC goalkeeper Dayne St. Clair had a big night to keep Colorado from mounting a comeback.

The Loons travel down to Madison for the first competitive version of “The Battle of the Birds” on Wednesday night. Forward Madison will host Minnesota United in the third round of the US Open Cup.
