Our prediction for this MLS match:
Monday’s football game at DRV PNK Stadium pits together Inter Miami and Nashville, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the standings. Inter Miami are stuck at the bottom of the standings, but their recent displays are surely giving fans a reason for optimism. Gonzalo Higuain is widely expected to lead the line for the hosts, but home win should not be considered as Nashville are undefeated in the previous nine league fixtures.
Argentina international Gonzalez returns from suspension, while all Fray, Jones, and Shawcross are sidelined with injuries. The visitors, on the other hand, have established themselves as a top-table side in the Eastern Conference. Since Inter Miami struggle at the back, we are tempted to put our money on the visiting team. It has to be noted that Inter Miami have yet to score against Nashville in the Major League Soccer. Defender Walker Zimmerman remains in the recovery room for the visiting team.
