Our prediction for this MLS match:
Nashville and Vancouver take on each other at Geodis Park in what is expected to be an interesting MLS game. Nashville have been performing below expectations in the 2022 MLS season, but Sunday’s clash could be the turning point for the hosts. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Hany Mukhtar, who should return to the starting XI after missing the 1-1 draw with Cincinnati with injury. Both Daniel Lovitz and Alex Muyl are banned for the match.
The Canadians, on the other hand, aim to put an end to their four-game winless run. Vancouver, though, are not regarded as good travellers, meaning that Nashville will not have a better chance than this to get back on course. All Luis Martins, Deiber Caicedo, Sebastian Berhalter, Cristian Gutierrez, and Thomas Hasal remain on the sidelines with injuries for the visiting team.
Highlighted Player (Anibal Godoy):
Anibal Godoy is a professional footballer who plays for Panama national football team. The powerful midfielder was born on February 10, 1990 and he has been playing for los Ticos since March 4, 2010 when he made his debut for the national team.
Anibal Godoy played full 90 minutes in the 2-1 win over Venezuela and he scored his first goal for Panama four years late in a 3-1 victory over El Salvador. Speaking of his club career, Godoy played for Chepo of Panama from 2007 to 2010 and he moved to Europe in the summer of 2013, signing a deal with Hungarian outfit Honved.
After playing 24 league games (one goal) for Honved, Godoy signed for Major League Soccer club San Jose Earthquakes in August 2015. Anibal Godoy is a defensive midfielder and his preferred foot is left. His contract with San Jose should expire in December, 2017 and it has to be noted that he began his youth career Arsenal de Sarandi of Argentina.
Highlighted Team (Vancouver Whitecaps):
Vancouver Whitecaps are yet another Canadian side that compete in Major League Soccer. Vancouver began play in the USA top flight in 2011 and one year later they became the first Canadian outfit to book their place in the MLS Cup play-offs. However, star-studded Los Angeles Galaxy proved to be a big catch for the Whitecaps in the knockout round. Vancouver, though, did remarkably well to win the Canadian Championship in 2015, with the team beating Montreal Impact in the title game.
In 2016 they made it to the final of the tournament as well, but Toronto FC eventually won the trophy. The Whitecaps are owned by Greg Kerfoot, Steve Luczo, Jeff Mallett and Steve Steve Nash, the former NBA star, and they play their home matches at BC Place. Speaking of MLS games, the capacity of the venue is 22.120 and you should know that the stadium was opened back in 1983. The Caps wear white shirts and white shorts when playing at home, while the colour of their away kit is blue.
