Crew SC: Black and Gold remain unbeaten at home, lead for Supporters Shield


Columbus Crew SC Head Coach Caleb Porter appreciates the kind words his team has received thus far is an electric 9-1-3 start to the disjointed 2020 season.

"Our defending has gotten a lot of talk, and yet, I think quietly, we're becoming one of the best attacking teams in the League," Porter said postgame Wednesday night. "You saw that on the first goal, it's one of the best team goals we’ve scored this year."

Lucas Zelarayan and Pedro Santos combined on a pair of goals in the Crew's 2-1 win over Minnesota United at MAPFRE Stadium.

The Crew maintain their Supporters’ Shield lead and extend an unbeaten streak to six matches, while the Loons are winless in their last three. The hosts did concede their first goal at home this season in 538 minutes late in the going. Porter logged his 99th career win as an MLS head coach.

Columbus Crew SC travels to face Toronto FC at Pratt & Whitney Stadium at Rentschler Field in East Hartford, Connecticut on Sunday, September 27 at 7:30 p.m. Crew SC is 4-0-2 over the last six matches.
