Major League Soccer action on Thursday as Nashville and Orlando meet at Nissan Stadium – 3:30am GMT.

Thursday’s clash between Nashville and Orlando, sees second take on fifth in the League.

Nashville SC arrive at this game, having secured 45 points so far this season

Following a 0-0 draw against Chicago Fire, Nashville will be hoping for more.

Football is a simple game, first don’t lose, and Nashville achieved this now in 16 of their last 18 fixtures. With 45 points, they are established in second in the League having won 11 games, drawn 12 matches, and lost three matches.

If odds are anything to go by, Orlando cannot expect to get a good result of their trip to Nashville. This is particularly true, given both team’s form. Nashville have won eight fixtures and drawn six games at home this season.

Nashville SC will have secured 48 points so far this season, should they secure a win.

Orlando City have 38 points to their name, going into this tie

Óscar Pareja will not wish to see his side lose three matches in a row, so they will doubtless go into this match, determined to change their recent, disappointing run of form.

Orlando have a huge task to over-turn their rivals in this game, having already lost four games this season. With 38 points, they currently sit fifth in the League having won 10 matches, drawn eight fixtures, and lost eight games.

Orlando have had a disappointing run of performances on the road, having won three meetings, drawn four fixtures, and lost six meetings of their 13 League matches playing away this season.

Orlando City will have 41 points if they manage to secure a victory.

Nashville SC v Orlando City – Head-to-Head.

It’s unlikely that this game will result in a draw, or at least that is what the form book would tell us, Nashville have played Orlando four times in the past seasons, with both sides enjoying victory one victory times each. Further, Orlando have won all one game played at Nissan Stadium against Nashville. Their most recent encounter in this competition was August 2021 and the score line ended up with a 1-1 draw.
