Nashville vs. St. Louis has the potential to be the most thrilling duel of the next round of the 2023 MLS. It’s because both teams are fantastic in the attacking department. St. Louis City is the highest-scoring team in the league, while Nashville’s striker Hany Mukhtar is the winner of last season’s MLS Golden Boot award. Further, Mukhtar is currently tied for first place on the list of top scorers in the 2023 MLS season.
The German attacker is the man in charge of scoring in Nashville. When it comes to defending, everyone’s involved. And so far, this method has been working out for them. With 12 goals conceded in 17 games, Nashville SC has the best defense in the league.
What’s got to worry them is that they’ve conceded at least a goal in each of their last six MLS games. An even bigger reason to worry is that on June 17, they’re squaring off against the team that’s averaging 2.06 goals per game.
Nashville SC vs. St. Louis City Prediction
With offensive-minded players like Nicolas Gioacchini, Eduard Lowen, and Jared Stroud, St. Louis City seems capable of finding the net against any team in the MLS. We think there’s a very good chance of that happening. However, we don’t think that’s going to be enough for a win. In fact, we think Nashville will score more.
