Our prediction for this MLS match:
Nashville and Inter Miami, the two newcomers, go head to head in the MLS playoffs qualification final at Nissan Stadium. Nashville have been playing above expectations on their debut season in the Major League Soccer, but they do not want to stop now. The hosts did well to beat Orlando City 3-2 in their last league match, and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach against Inter Miami as well.
Bad news for the hosts is that both Badji and Danladi have been tested positive for coronavirus. The likes of Maher and Tribbet miss the game with injury. Inter Miami, on the other hand, will be without Acosta, Norman, Robles, and Ulysse (all injured) against Nashville, while Pizarro and Figal are back. Andres Reyes is banned for the match. Since Gonzalo Higuain is likely to lead the line for the visitors, we believe that punters can find value in betting on both teams to score.
