Nashville SC’s Major League Soccer season, has so far seen them gain 31 points, going into this game

Nashville will be keen to retain their winning form, having beaten D.C. United 5-2 in their last fixture.

Slow and steady wins the race, Nashville are showing that they know by avoiding defeat in 17 of their last 18 fixtures. With 31 points, they currently sit third in the League having won seven matches, drawn 10 meetings, and lost one game.

When Nashville host Orlando, they will do so on the back of seven wins and five draws on their own ground.

A 3rd successive, disappointing result for Orlando will not be acceptable for Óscar Pareja’s squad. They will see this fixture as an opportunity to turn their form around after drawing 1-1 at Cincinnati and 1-1 at Inter Miami.

A draw statistic of two in two matches is not all bad, but unfortunately will not bring the success Óscar Pareja’s men wishes for ultimately. With fourth, they currently sit 30 points in the League having won eight games, drawn six matches, and lost four meetings.

Orlando’s away record is remarkable and poses a significant threat to Nashville. In the 9 games they’ve played on the road this season, they have so far won three meetings, drawn three matches, and lost three games.

Victory for Orlando City would take their points tally to 33 so far this season.
