Our prediction for this MLS match:
Toronto and Nashville square off against each other at BMO Field in what is expected to be a close Major League Soccer game. The Reds head into Sunday’s clash following back-to-back draws against Chicago Fire and Minnesota United, but they face an uphill task against Nashville. All Adama Diomande, Coello Camarero, Shane ONeill, Jonathan Osorio, Victor Vazquez, and Michael Bradley remain in the recovery room for the Canadian outfit.
The visitors, on the other hand, look unstoppable at the moment, with the team eyeing their fifth consecutive league win. Toronto, though, are tough to beat at home and we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. Defender Nick DePuy misses out with an Achilles tendon problem, but he should be the only absentee in the away team. Canada midfielder Jacob Shaffelburg is pushing for a start.
