Nashville vs Minnesota United betting tips: Leagues Cup quarter-final preview, predictions and odds


Nashville vs Minnesota United match preview

After both came through penalty shootouts to dump out Liga MX opposition on Tuesday, who will now move on into the Leagues Cup semi-finals?

Nashville SC caused a bit of an upset in the round of 32, dumping out FC Cincinnati on penalties, before prevailing in another shootout earlier this week.

Gary Smith’s side looked set to crash out against Club América, conceding in the 94th minute, only for Sam Surridge, on his debut no less, to equalise in the 99th minute, thereby forcing a shootout in Tennessee.

Talisman Hany Mukhtar actually missed Nashville’s first, but Surridge, Aníbal Godoy, Walker Zimmerman, Dax McCarty, Jack Maher and Daniel Lovitz all converted as the Boys in Gold snuck through.

Similarly, Minnesota United too have been penalty kicks in the knockout stages, first overcoming Columbus Crew 6-5 in a shootout following a thrilling 3-3 draw in Ohio.

Then, the Loons raced into a 2-0 lead against Toluca at Allianz Field, only to be pegged back to 2-2.

So, the smart money would certainly be on a shootout at Geodis Park, but who will set up a Leagues Cup semi-final date with LAFC or Monterrey on Tuesday?
