Our prediction for this MLS match:
Austin and Nashville go head to head at Q2 Stadium in a highly-anticipated MLS game. Austin defeated Real Salt Lake 3-0 in midweek, with the team putting an end to their three-match losing run, and, as a result, they are on the right track to secure a top-two finish. A man to watch in the home team will be Moussa Djitte, who should return to the starting XI after scoring a hat-trick in the midweek triumph. Defender Freddy Kleemann remains in the only absentee in the home side.
Nashville, on the other hand, have been in a fine form of late, with the team recording four wins in the previous five MLS games, while sharing the spoils with LA Galaxy. The visitors aim to seal their spot in the Western Conference playoffs, but, as things stand now, they should be happy with one point from Sunday’s game as well. Keep in mind that defender Walker Zimmerman serves a one-game ban for the away side.
