Orlando City vs Nashville SC
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Thursday, 27 August 2020
Kick-off at 00:30 UK/ 01:30 CET
Venue: Exploria Stadium.
The Lions have simply been phenomenal this year, and they had a cracker of a showing in the recently concluded ‘MLS is Back’ tournament. After progressing till the final, they were unlucky to fall against Portland Timbers, for a 2-1 scoreline.
Still, they have made a strong statement to the rest of the league, and surely will be a team to be feared as we go forward.
Meanwhile, Gary Smith’s men are one of the newest teams in the MLS, and are still just gaining experience rather than actively competing. They had came into formation just two years back, and it would take them a few years before they are able take on the big boys.
As things stand, Oscar Pareja’s men are easily the favorites, and they are expected to post a convincing win this Thursday.

- The teams are fighting against each other for the very first time.
Orlando City vs Nashville: Prediction
The Lions narrowly missed out on the title in the ‘MLS is Back’ tournament. However, they surely have built up a huge momentum, and will be determined to keep going with the same intensity.
In fact, they were unbeaten in six of their previous eight overall fixtures, and had scored two or more goals in five of their last eight match-ups.
In the meantime, their opposite number are taking part in the MLS for the first time, and so far have recorded a total of one win. They have also managed to score a total of just two goals till now.
And finally, they have registered a total of just one win away from home since September of last year.
Taking into account all these observations, expect an Orlando win this Thursday.
