Nashville SC vs Orlando City
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Thursday, 3 September 2020
Kick-off at 1:30 UK/ 2:30 CET
Venue: Nissan Stadium (Nashville).
Nissan Stadium will pit together the newly formed side Nashville FC against Orlando City that secured the 11th spot in the league last season. Despite having the ground advantage, the host is not likely to take revenge for the 3-1 loss on the road in the reverse fixture this season in the schedule last month.
Nashville’s 1-0 home win against Inter Miami last time out in the campaign worked out for them, but facing the Lions will not be the same as winning against the bottom dwellers. Orlando City will visit on the back of a two-game winning streak, following a 1-3 win on the road against Atlanta United.
Nashville SC vs Orlando City Head-to-head (h2h)

- The Lions won the fixture at home with a 3-1 scoreline.
Nashville SC vs Orlando City Prediction
Having won only two of their 7 fixtures in the campaign so far this season, Nashville is not into a good start for their maiden season in the MLS. Their struggle in the middle is clear from the 4 goals scored against the 8 goals conceded in the same period.
With their strong away form and the league experience, Orlando City is close to continuing their winning streak to three games in the league form. They have averaged 1.9 goals in the campaign until now, which will be a serious threat to the home defense in the encounter.
So, we cannot expect many goals in the clash and the tip for under 3.5 goals will probably serve as a suitable option for the punters to yield decent returns. Apart from that, the double chance favoring Orlando City will also be a suitable option in the game.
Nashville SC vs Orlando City Betting tips
Under 3.5 goals @ 1.40 (2/5).
Double chance: Draw or Orlando City @ 1.50 (1/2).
