Atlanta United vs Nashville SC
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 23 August 2020
Kick-off at 0:00 UK/ 1:00 CET
Venue: Mercedes-Benz Stadium (Atlanta).
Including a loss in the CONCACAF fixture, Atlanta United has lost their last four matches in the schedule across all major competitions. The 2-1 win in March 2020 at home against Cincinnati was their previous win in any contest, and also the last time they found the back of the nets in their overall record.
Their previous encounter was at home against Columbus Crew and the former took a 0-1 defeat, marking their third consecutive loss with the same scoreline. It has to be noted that all these losses came at home in the schedule.
Nashville SC has started their league run with a loss and is obvious considering they have no former experience in the top tier. Their opening loss was also against the Five Stripes at home. However, they won against FC Dallas on the road earlier and were unbeaten in their last league clash with the same after it ended in a goalless draw.

Atlanta United vs Nashville SC Prediction
Atlanta hasn’t scored in the recent four fixtures in their schedule. Having conceded at least a goal in each game, their defense is not at the strongest form this season. However, we can expect them to make a comeback in the league, and facing a newcomer will be their best shot at it. Hence, we have to back the home team to win either half in the game with their ground advantage.
The match is sizing to be a slow one, with probably less than 3.5 goals. Besides, their only meeting before this had only 3 goals in total, which also backs the tip for under 3.5 goals in the encounter.
Apart from that, a BTTS will also be another suitable option from the goals area since the host is likely to concede despite the result.
