The hosts have suffered back-to-back defeats to start the season, sitting at the foot of the Western Conference table as a result, while their visitors recorded their first win of the season last time out, defeating Colorado Rapids 3-1 away from home.
Minnesota United fell to a narrow defeat last time out, when they hosted Real Salt Lake.
Adrian Heath's side got off to a poor start in the MLS, suffering a 4-0 away defeat at the hands of Seattle Sounders on the opening day, as Raul Ruidiaz netted a brace alongside goals from Joao Paulo and Fredy Montero to send Minnesota to the foot of the Western Conference straight away.
They will now look to overcome those two defeats, and put their first points of the season on the board to quickly move off the foot of the table and closer to the seven playoff spots in their conference.
They take on the newest franchise in the MLS, as Austin embark on their first season in the top flight.
They quickly bounced back from that though, as Wolff's men picked up an impressive 3-1 victory away at Colorado Rapids.
Austin will now look to add a second consecutive victory to cement themselves at the top end of the Western Conference, having quickly adjusted to life in USA's elite league.
Minnesota made a change to their defence for the second game of the season, as centre-back Brent Kallman was dropped to the bench following a disappointing performance in the opening 4-0 defeat to Seattle Sounders.
Cecilio Dominguez will play a key role in Austin's attack, having netted a brace in the 3-1 win over Colorado last time out.
Meanwhile, midfielder Diego Fagundez netted the opening goal in that game, and consequently the first goal in the franchise's history, and he is expected to line up in a midfield three alongside Alexander Ring and Daniel Pereira.
Exciting attacking player Tomas Pochettino was surprisingly absent from the squad last time out, and Austin could be without one of their key assets again for the trip to Minnesota.
Minnesota United possible starting lineup:
Clair; Metanire, Boxall, Raitala, Gasper; Trapp, Alonso; Lod, Reynoso, Finlay; Agudelo
Austin FC possible starting lineup:
Stuver; Lima, Romana, Cascante, Sweat; Fagundez, Ring, Pereira; Stroud, Hoesen, Dominguez
We say: Minnesota United 1-2 Austin FC
While Minnesota would conventionally come into this game as favourites, Austin look an exciting proposition in their first MLS campaign, and we see them pulling off another impressive victory when they travel north.
The visitors could take advantage of the fact that the Loons come into this game on the back of consecutive defeats, and we see them building momentum with a somewhat surprising victory.
