Nashville vs Philadelphia Union betting tips: Major League Soccer preview, predictions and odds

Both regular season meetings between these two produced 1-0 home wins. They then met in last season's play-off with Philadelphia advancing on penalties following a 1-1 draw. Since 2017, five MLS clubs have opened new stadiums mid-season with these openers producing two home wins, two draws and one away victories. 

Both teams to score is 10/11.

Nashville to win and both teams to score is 4/1.

CJ Sapong is 5/1 to become the first player to score at Geodis Park and 7/4 to score anytime.

Match preview

Today is the day that Nashville finally get to open their brand-new home; Geodis Park.

Having spent their first two campaigns playing at Nissan Stadium, the Coyotes now have their own soccer-specific stadium to call home.

With a capacity of 30,000, it is the largest stadium of its kind in the United States, and not many would've predicated this would be situated in Tennessee.

Of course, this new MLS season is two-months old, so Gary Smith's side have began the campaign with eight consecutive away games.

Last weekend, Nashville were beaten 1-0 by LA Galaxy but, in spite of this, Nashville have 11 points on the board; not bad at all.

Will it be a day of celebrating on the field as well as off it in Music City?

Opponents don't come much tougher than this though with Eastern Conference leaders Philadelphia Union in town.

Jim Curtin's men were held to a 1-1 draw by CF Montréal at Subaru Park last weekend, despite leading through Julián Carranza's penalty.

The Union won five consecutive matches earlier this season, but are now winless in two with their unbeaten run shattered in Toronto a fortnight ago.

Nevertheless, Philadelphia remain at the summit of the east and third in the overall standings.

Will the 30,000 crammed into Nashville Fairgrounds Stadium be celebrating a victory?
