Key Stats

  • The four official games between the two clubs resulted in two victories for Nashville, one draw, and only one Charlotte success.
  • Coach Gary Smith has a positive 2-1-1 record against this opponent.
  • We had goals galore in all four official Charlotte vs Nashville head-to-heads.
  • In three of the four meetings, we also saw over 1.5 first-half goals.
  • Charlotte lost two of their last three Major League Soccer games.

Pre-game odds and win probability: Mukhtar and his colleagues unlikely to avoid defeat

  • HOME: -115 – 55.5%
  • DRAW: +245 – 27.5%
  • AWAY: +300 – 17.0%

*These Charlotte vs Nashville odds are subject to change

Despite having a massive 55.5% win probability at -115, we don’t consider Charlotte the expected winners at Bank of America Stadium. The visitors look like they know how to handle this opponent, so we trust that coach Smith’s boys will defy the odds, which stand at +300 (17.0% win probability).

Moreover, we also believe we will see over 1.5 first-half goals. The odds are priced at +110, giving our key Charlotte vs Nashville prediction a sturdy 47.62% success probability.

The match between Charlotte and Nashville on the 12th of May will be the fifth edition of this rivalry.

Charlotte team news and form: Charlotte back on track

After losing twice in a row in MLS, coach Dean Smith’s boys managed to get three points in the match against Portland Timbers last week. The result on the scoreboard was 2-0 in favor of Charlotte after 90 minutes of play, but we believe this match doesn’t prove anything and that our Charlotte vs Nashville predictions will succeed.

Predicted lineup: Kahlina (GK), Byrne, Malanda, Privett, Uronen, Westwood, Petkovic, Diani, Dejaegere, Agyemang & Tavares

Nashville team news and form: No Mukhtar? No deal!

Whenever Hany Mukhtar fails to deliver for coach Gary Smith, Nashville suffers. So far, the team recorded two wins, five draws, and three matches lost in MLS. Surely, Nashville have some very good players but the Hany Mukhtar dependency seems to be getting out of hand.

Predicted lineup: Willis (GK), Muyl, Bauer, Zimmerman, Maher, Shaffelburg, Davis, Godoy, Yearwood, Surridge & Mukhtar

Player to watch: Sam Surridge

Despite Hany Mukhtar being the obvious leader on the team, we fancy Surridge’s chance of proving our Charlotte vs Nashville predictions correct. The striker was above everyone else in last week’s match against Montreal, and we are sure that his performance will only improve from there on.

Surridge eager to prove himself

Sam bagged a hattrick against the Canucks last week, so, understandably, we believe he will do well against Charlotte at Bank of America Stadium as well.
