Nashville vs Montreal
Date: 19 May 2022, Thursday
Kick-off at 01:30 UK / 02:30 CET
Venue: GEODIS Park (Nashville).

Montreal moved to the top of the Eastern Conference standings with an easy 0-2 victory away at debutants Charlotte FC on Saturday.

Djordje Mihailovic took his league tally to six goals in this term of MLS by breaking the deadlock just before the break at Bank of America Stadium, while right full-back Alistair Johnston set the final score midway through the second half.

The Canadians now have six wins and a draw in the previous seven rounds and are by far the hottest outfit in the league.

They also boast the best attacking record on the East with 22 goals in 11 outings so far in the season.

It will be very interesting to see whether Wilfried Nancy’s men will be able to maintain this phenomenal spell of form on Wednesday evening when they travel to GEODIS Park to take on Nashville in one of the most interesting ties of Matchday No 12.

Nashville share the sixth position on the West with the likes of Houston Dynamo and Colorado Rapids despite playing just two games on the home patch since the beginning of the season.

They collected four out of six points from these two affairs, conceding only one goal along the way (a 1-1 draw to Philadelphia Union and a 2-0 win over Real Salt Lake).

The team led by English manager Gary Smith will enter this match off the back of a 2.0 defeat at Houston Dynamo, though.

Nashville vs Montreal Head-to-head

  • Nashville have been the dominant force in the short history of this matchup.
  • Nashville won three and drew two of five encounters against Montreal.
  • Only one of these five head to head clashes saw three or more goals scored.

Nashville vs Montreal Prediction

Interestingly, the bookmakers see Nashville as quite big favorites (1.85 to win) here despite Montreal’s run of six wins and a draw in the previous seven MLS games.

Nashville looked awful in the 2-0 loss at Houston Dynamo at the weekend despite having an extra man on the pitch since the 35th minute when Adam Lundqvist was sent off for the hosts. This is why we fancy the 1.83 odds offered for Montreal not to lose here.
