Nashville and Montreal square off against each other at Nissan Stadium in what is expected to be an interesting game. Nashville quickly bounced back from a 2-0 loss to New York Red Bulls, with the team beating Toronto at home in their last league fixture.
Gary Smith’s troops have suffered only one defeat in the 2021 MLS campaign, and it is no wonder they are seen as favourites to beat Montreal on home soil.
Venezuela international Cadiz has been tested positive for coronavirus, while both Rios and Badji are likely to miss the game with injuries.
Montreal, on the other hand, head into the match following a goalless draw with DC United. The Canadians have been impressive at the back of late, but preventing Nashville from scoring at Nissan Stadium is easier said than done. Defender Zohran Bassong is banned for the visitors.
Seattle Sounders will be aiming to extend their winning run to three games when they take on Vancouver Whitecaps at their Lumen Field. Seattle are leading the chase for the trophy, with the team conceding no more than five goals in the first ten games of the season.
You should bear in mind that the Sounders are eyeing their fifth home win of the process. All Delem, Frei, Lodeiro, and Morris have been struggling with injuries of late.
As for the visiting team, they do not seem to be at their sharpest ahead of the trip to Seattle. Vancouver Whitecaps are on a five-game losing run in the Major League Soccer, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered.
Canada international Ricketts remains on the sidelines with injury, while Gaspar is a major doubt.
