Our prediction for this MLS match:
Nashville play host to Toronto at their Geodis Park in what is expected to be an interesting Major League Soccer game. Nashville aim to build on a 2-0 win over Orlando City, with the team eyeing their third home triumph of the process, and they will continue relying on Hany Mukhtar. Randall Leal and Nick DePuy should be the only absentees in the home team. The Reds, on the other hand, are undefeated in the previous give league matches.
The Canadian outfit, though, are still without Italy superstar Lorenzo Insigne, which is probably the main reason why home win should be considered. In their last meeting in the Major League Soccer Toronto defeated Nashville 4-3, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge. Adama Diomande and Cristian Gutierrez miss out with injuries for the visiting team as well. A man to watch in the visiting team will be Federico Bernardeschi, who found the net in a 2-2 draw with Charlotte.
