Nashville odds: +105 – 51.0%

Draw odds: +240 – 25.0%

Toluca odds: +250 – 24.0%

As you can see from the Nashville vs Toluca odds above, it’s the Mexican side that’s the considered underdog in this race. Toluca’s odds are priced at +240, which means coach Ambriz’s boys have only a 24.0% shot at the three points. Meanwhile, Nashville contain a solid 27.0% lead over Toluca, with their 51.0% win probability, and that makes coach Smith’s boys the expected winners ahead of Friday’s Leagues Cup duel.

Nashville vs Toluca Lineups & Team News

Nashville

Without defender-in-chief Walker Zimmerman, Nashville didn’t have too many issues securing a vital 2-1 win over lackluster Rapids a couple of days ago. Coach Robin Fraser’s boys were desperate to win, as it’s quite clear that they won’t make an impact in MLS this year. However, it was Nashville who got the much-desired points, proving that our Nashville vs Toluca prediction is on the right track to success.

Predicted lineup – Willis (GK), Moore, Bauer, MacNaughton, Lovitz, McCarty, Davis, Leal, Muyl, Shaffelburg & Bunbury

Toluca

This will be Toluca’s opening Leagues Cup game, but coach Ambriz’s boys already got a taste of the action this season. Toluca played three Liga MX games in which a win, a draw, and a loss were recorded. Surely, coach Ambriz has a few tricks up his sleeve, but we believe our Nashville vs Toluca predictions will succeed regardless.

Predicted lineup – Volpi (GK), Mosquera, Vergara, Huerta, Garcia, Baeza, Ruiz, Isais, Araujo, Morales & Dominguez

Player to Watch: Jacob Shaffelburg

23-year-old Shaffelburg is a vital part of Nashville’s starting XI. His partnership with Hany Mukhtar is growing scarier by the day, as the two have 15 goals combined this season!

Jacob Shaffelburg found the net on three occasions in Major League Soccer whilst also supplying teammates with three valuable assists. Jacob found his way to coach Gary Smith’s starting XI for the opening game against Colorado Rapids. He even managed to put his name on the scoreboard after a beautiful 65th-minute goal behind William Yarbrough.
