Our prediction for this MLS match:
All eyes will be on BMO Field when Toronto and Nashville, the two Canadian outfits, face each other in the MLS for the first time. The Reds aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over New York City, and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s football match. Even though experienced attacker Jozy Altidore has yet to open his goal-scoring account, the opposition defenders should have him at bay.
Nashville, on the other hand, have been struggling to find their form at the start of their debut season. Following a 2-1 loss to Atlanta United in their opener, Gary Smith’s men suffered a 1-0 defeat at Portland at the weekend. Even though it is still early for us to start drawing conclusions, Nashville do not seem to be competitive at this level; therefore, we are tempted to put our money on the Reds.
This game is postponed.
