Union Playoff Preview: Round Two vs Nashville F.C
The Philadelphia Union head into the second round of MLS Playoffs Sunday afternoon as Nashville F.C comes to town. Nashville entered the playoffs as the 3rd seed right below the second place Union. The first round ended excitingly, as we saw Jakob Glesnes score an absolute screamer in the 123rd minute of extra time.
When: Sunday, November 28, 5:30 p.m.
Where: Subaru Park
Nashville F.C Scouting Report
Nashville has split both meetings with the Union, with both games ending 1-0. They were without an MVP candidate in Hany Mukhtar, who led their club with 18 goals and 10 assists. This Sunday, they battle to see who goes on to the next round and play the winner of New England and NYC FC. Former Union striker C.J Sapong looks to score for a second straight time against the Union. Sapong scored 12 goals during the regular season and looks to add a big playoff goal for Nashville.
They are coming off a 3-1 victory over Orlando in the first round and look to win again in Chester. Nashville has only lost four games this season but have drawn 18 times. Their defense anchored by Walker Zimmerman has only allowed 33 goals in 34 matches. Alongside their excellent defense has been the outstanding play from their goalkeeper Joe Willis.
Prediction: 1-0 Union
I think the Union walk away with the W and move on to the next round of the playoffs. It will be a low scoring game focused on defense. Subaru Park will be rockin and it will lift the Union over Nashville on Sunday. Come join me over on the Parx Sportsbook app and bet the Union ML. Enter promo code LIBERTYLINE when you sign up.
