New York City vs Nashville Predictions, Picks, and More

We’d love for Sunday’s MLS clash between New York City and Nashville at Yankee Stadium to be a glamorous event but our New York City vs Nashville betting tips predict something else. Find out more about it below!

Under 1.5 Goals

Anything more than one goal at Yankee Stadium on Sunday will be excessive. There’s nothing about Nashville’s performance this season that suggests an action-packed game on the 16th of April.

Sure, only one of the three games in total between the two teams ended with under 1.5 goals but it was the only New York City home game against Nashville that ended with a goalless tie.

That being said, we have to back up our New York City vs Nashville prediction by saying that the visitors’ attacking record is a joke. With barely six goals scored in seven MLS games, coach Gary Smith’s boys are being outscored by Charlotte who are struggling at the bottom of the table.

Under 9.5 Corners

We’ll continue our New York City vs Nashville predictions by saying that Gary Smith’s boys have the best defensive record in the league with barely two goals conceded. It’s that sort of sturdy defensive work that keeps the ball away from their penalty box.

And when the opponent can’t reach your goalkeeper, they can’t win corner kicks. Such was the case on the 9th of April when Nashville hosted Bob Bradley’s Toronto. The match at GEODIS Park ended with barely seven corners. We anticipate Sunday’s game to have very few chances of set-piece goals as well.

New York City vs Nashville Lineups & Team News

New York City

Nick Cushing’s 0-0-1 record against Nashville is about to take another hit. That is if something drastically doesn’t change in how New York City play. They couldn’t win a single one of their last three MLS games. Even the home game against Atlanta United was somewhat of a letdown considering Gary Smith’s boys barely had three shots on target.

Predicted lineup – Barraza (GK), Ilenic, Martins, Chanot, Cufre, Parks, Sands, Pellegrini, Rodriguez, T. M & Segal

Nashville

If you wish to make a solid bet this week, you have to listen to our New York City vs Nashville predictions. We can’t stress enough how well Zimmerman and his colleagues are defending these days. With barely two goals conceded, Nashville will try to give New York City a run for their money. Just like they did in all head-to-heads so far.

Predicted lineup – Willis (GK), Moore, Zimmerman, Maher, Lovitz, Shaffelburg, Godoy, Davis, Picault, Mukhtar & Sapong

Player to Watch: Walker Zimmerman

Walker Zimmerman is a key reason behind Nashville’s tremendous performance this season and a major part behind our top New York City vs Nashville predictions. Nashville’s captain is a rock at the heart of the defense but he also managed to score once this season. He’ll surely be in the starting XI on Sunday and you should keep an eye out for him.
