Monterrey vs Nashville Lineups & Team News

Monterrey

With Rogelio Funes Mori among the starters, Monterrey can’t miss. The team defeated MLS champions LAFC in the previous round of Leagues Cup soccer, so you can understand why we pick the Mexican side as the favorite to win in our Monterrey vs Nashville predictions.

Predicted lineup – Andrada (GK), Gallardo, Moreno, Medina, Aguirre, Govea, Gonzalez, Canales, Meza, Rojas & Mori

Nashville

Lining up in an experimental 4-1-2-1-2 formation proved successful, as coach Gary Smith’s boys completely outplayed Minnesota United on the 12th of August. The game was held at GEODIS Park, so Nashville already had a head start, but it was a foolish 34th-minute DJ Taylor red card that helped the hosts the most.

Predicted lineup – Panicco (GK), Moore, Zimmerman, MacNaughton, Lovitz, McCarty, Muyl, Anunga, Mukhtar, Bunbury & Shaffelburg

Player to Watch: Rogelio Funes Mori

Rogelio Funes Mori won the player-of-the-match award in the game against 2022 Major League Soccer winners Los Angeles FC. Monterrey entered the half-time break trailing two goals after Denis Bouanga and Mateusz Bogusz scored for coach Cherundolo.

However, as Rogelio Funes Mori explained in a post-game interview – “the team never stopped believing”. He provided a teammate with an assist and he scored an 88th-minute goal to help Monterrey pull off a remarkable come-from-behind 2-3 win at Rose Bowl.
