On Saturday evening, DC United go in search of a fifth successive home victory, but to achieve such a feat the hosts will have to get the better of a resilient and extremely hard-to-beat Nashville SC. The visitors rarely lose and are currently unbeaten in four.

This will only be the fourth meeting between the two teams. Back in 2020, they tied 1-1 at this venue, while Saturday’s visitors won by a goal to nil at home. Earlier this season, the Nashville boys got the better of their DC counterparts, winning five goals to two.

DC United – Home comforts

Last time out, it was a case of last-minute despair for the DC United boys, who walked away from Orlando empty-handed thanks to a 97th minute hammer blow from the hosts. However, that result is unlikely to have dented the confidence of Hernán Losada’s men, who’ve been in fine form at home of late.

Saturday’s hosts have won each of their last four matches at Audi Field, which is where they’ve done almost all of their best work this season. Only one team in the east has won more home games than DC. The Black-and-Red have won ten out of 13 in front of their own fans, scoring 28 goals in the process, which is third-highest total in the division.

Expected Line-Up: Hamid – Najar, Birmbaum, Pines – Gressel, Canouse, Felipe, Paredes – Arriola, Reyna, Kamara.

Nashville SC – Still digging their heels in

The visitors haven’t exactly been winning with regularity of late, in fact, they’re without a win in three, but Gary Smith’s men refuse to roll over and be beaten, losing none of those three. They arrive here having kept two clean sheets in their last three fixtures, while they’ve lost just one of their last ten. Such form shows that Nashville is a side that is anything but easy to get the better of.

Even on their travels, Saturday’s visitors have made life tough for their opponents, losing just one of their last six, while they’ve only lost three out of 13 on the road all campaign. Again, they don’t win too often, winning only three times away from the comforts of home this season, but they’re up there with the best when it comes to stopping the opposition. No team in the

Eastern Conference has conceded fewer away goals than Smith’s men, who’ve also conceded the fewest number of expected goals.

Expected Line-Up: Willis – Romney, Zimmerman, Miller – Washinghton, Anunga, Godoy, Lovitz – Mukhtar, Sapong, Muyl.

Expert Pick #1 – Under 2.5 Goals @-110

On their own patch, the hosts haven’t exactly found goals hard to come by, scoring a healthy average of 2.15, but then again, they’ve not faced a defensive unit quite like the one they’re about to come up against. If there’s one team in all of Major League Soccer that can take the sting out of a game on the road and keep the score down, then it’s Nashville.

The visitors are one of only two teams in the east to concede less than a goal per game on average away from home, conceding just 0.76 per 90 minutes. It is therefore no surprise that only three of their 13 travelling games have contained more than two goals. Coming off the back of some strong defensive efforts, they are worth betting on to once again keep things simple, and the chances of a relatively low-scoring contest look slightly greater than the current odds suggest.

Expert Pick #2 – Nashville +1 Handicap @-125

The hosts are strong at home, there can be no denying that, but are they strong enough to warrant the favouritism that the current betting shows? Probably not. As touched on above, Nashville really are one hell of a team when it comes to grinding out a positive result, even if that positive result is a tie. The visitors concede very few goals on the road, while they don’t give too much away in terms of expected goals either, surrendering a pleasing average of just 0.83. Such stats point towards them being a good bet with a goal lead on the handicap.

Expert Pick #3 – DC not to Score @+330

This one may not be for everyone, but as a third option, a small play on the hosts faltering offensively stands out at the current odds. Yes, DC has rarely misfired at home, failing to find the net in just two of their 13 matches at Audi Field, but again, they haven’t faced the defiant Nashville at home yet. After all, the visitors kept a clean sheet when the pair met in the reverse fixture, while nobody does clean sheets quite like they do. Smith’s troops have shut the opposition out on no less than seven travelling occasions this season.

92/100
Visitors to frustrate

The hosts will arrive at this junction feeling upbeat having won with regularity at home of late, but they now have a much tougher task. The visitors know exactly how to frustrate and get the job done on the road, so it would be little surprise if we saw another defensive masterclass from the men in yellow, who can reward those bettors who are willing to go against both the hosts and a high-scoring game.
