Our prediction for this MLS match:
All eyes will be on Geodis Park when Nashville and Orlando City lock horns in a highly-anticipated MLS Cup game. Nashville are desperate to tie the series and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the Lions this time out. Forward Nick DePuy remains on the sidelines with injury, while Haiti forward Fafa Picault is pushing for a start.
The Lions, on the other hand, are on a five-game winning run in MLS ahead of the trip to Tennessee, but seeing that Nashville have turned their Geodis Park into a real fortress, home win should be considered. Both Favian Loyola and Jack Lynn have been struggling with injuries of late, speaking of the visiting team. As always, a man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Hany Mukhtar, who has netted 15 goals so far this season, while providing 10 assists for his teammates.
