Cincinnati odds: -110 – 51.0%

Draw odds: +260 – 26.0%

Nashville odds: +270 – 23.0%

Over 2.5 Goals is currently priced at -120, which gives our key Cincinnati vs Nashville prediction a solid 54.58% chance. Meanwhile, we have Cincinnati down as the expected winners, as coach Noonan’s boys have a massive 51.0% win probability ahead of Saturday’s showdown. Nashville, on the other hand, aren’t enjoying the bookies’ attention as much, as coach Smith’s troops barely have a 23.0% shot at reaching the next stage.

Cincinnati vs Nashville Lineups & Team News

Cincinnati

It’s understandable why we pick the home team as favorites in our Cincinnati vs Nashville prediction. After all, coach Pat Noonan’s boys are sitting at the top of the table in the Eastern Conference, with only two games lost in 23 league appearances. If everything goes according to plan, Cincinnati should take another vital win on the 5th of August.

Predicted lineup – Kann (GK), Murphy, Miazga, Hagglund, Angulo, Barreal, Acosta, Nwobodo, Gaddis, Boupendza & Vazquez

Nashville

Coach Gary Smith has no right to be happy with his players’ conduct in recent weeks. The 3-4 loss over Toluca was an unacceptable result, and it’ll be interesting to see if Walker Zimmerman will get another shot among the starters, as he made some crucial defensive errors last week.

Predicted lineup – Panicco (GK), Zimmerman, Lovitz, Moore, Bauer, Godoy, Muyl, Anunga, Mukhtar, Picault & Shaffelburg

Player to Watch: Brandon Vazquez

We feel bad for Guadalajara’s fans, as Brandon Vazquez tore their beloved team to shreds on matchday 2 in the Leagues Cup tournament last week. The 24-year-old proved he has a place among the starters in Cincinnati, so coach Noonan will have to think long and hard before betting on Sergio Santos again.

Brandon Vazquez scored the first hattrick of the tournament, and we can’t wait to see him play on Saturday. We just know he has plenty more where that came from.
