Nashville SC vs Philadelphia Union 5/1/2022 Prediction and Match Preview

Nashville had 33 percent possession and four shots on goal, one of which was on target. The LA Galaxy scored 16 shots on goal, six of them were on target. Los Angeles Galaxy’s goal came from Jovelji (86′).

Nashville demonstrated defensive grit on only a few occasions in recent years. Nashville’s inability to keep opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 meetings, allowing 8 goals in the process, will be a problem for them. However, this type of tendency is unlikely to continue in this country.

We believe Nashville will use Walker Zimmerman, Joe Willis, David Romney, Jack Maher, Anibal Godoy, Randall Leal, Daniel Lovitz, Brian Anunga, Alex Muyl, Charles Sapong, and Hany Mukhtar in a 3-5-2 system this time.

Nashville SC vs Philadelphia Union 5/1/2022 Prediction and Match Preview

Philadelphia Union tied 1-1 with Montreal Impact in their previous MLS encounter. Philadelphia Union had 46 percent possession and four shots on goal, two of which were on target, in the encounter. Carranza (21′) was the only Philadelphia Union player to score.

The Montreal Impact had eight shots on goal, three of which were on target. For the Montreal Impact, Kamara scored in the 59th minute.

A very low amount of goals are scored between Philadelphia Union and opposing clubs in 5 of the last 6 matchups. Within that span, the total average amount of goals per game is a pitiful 2, with The U averaging 1.5.

Manager Jim Curtin of the Philadelphia Union has no fitness worries heading into this encounter since his team is entirely healthy.

We believe the U will open with a 4-1-2-1-2 formation, with Andre Blake, Nathan Harriel, Jose Andres Martinez, Alejandro Bedoya, Jakob Glesnes, Jack Elliott, Kai Wagner, Jack McGlynn, Dániel Gazdag, Julián Carranza, and Corre Burke.

The MLS pick for this game is the Nashville SC. We believe the Philadelphia Union will find it tough to score against this Nashville team, who we believe will win and potentially retain a clean sheet. That’s why, when the referee blows for full-time, we forecast a fiercely contested game with Nashville leading 1-0.
