Why you should back Nashville

Don’t let Nashville’s current remember fool you. It would be hard for any team to find consistency starting the season on a long road trip, and playing a game at home should do Nashville SC some good. With the roar of the home crowd behind them, Walker Zimmermann and company should fight hard to secure all three points on Sunday.

Nashville SC can also take advantage of the Union giving up three of its five goals granted this season while on the road. Hany Mukhtar leads the offense with two goals and two assists on the young season and brings an element to Nashville’s game they will need to overcome a tough opponent in Philadelphia. Mukhtar finished last season with 19 goals and 10 assists for Nashville SC.

The Union entered the weekend on top of the Eastern Conference for good reason. Despite coming off a 1-1 draw at home against Montreal and a 2-1 loss to Toronto before that, Philadelphia is still outscoring its opponents 12-5 on the season.

Philadelphia also as the psychological advantage having knocked Nashville out of the MLS playoffs a season ago. Gary Smith’s men will be looking for revenge and extra emotional in their first home game at the new GEODIS Park, and the Union can spoil their homecoming.
