“Nashville SC Seeks Redemption Against Miami After Leagues Cup Defeat“
Nashville SC is gearing up for a highly anticipated rematch against Inter Miami less than two weeks after their disappointing Leagues Cup loss to the same opponents. The showdown is scheduled for Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. CT, with fans able to catch the action on Apple TV.
Having experienced defeat in the Leagues Cup final against Inter Miami and Lionel Messi, Nashville now has a golden opportunity to turn the tables and exact revenge. The match serves as Nashville’s second MLS fixture since the season resumed following the Leagues Cup hiatus.
Despite a strong Leagues Cup campaign, Nashville’s recent MLS performance hasn’t been as impressive. The team, led by Gary Smith, has encountered a tough streak, losing its past four league matches, three of which were by a margin of multiple goals. Their most recent setback was a resounding 4-0 defeat to Atlanta United last Saturday.
Currently positioned seventh in the Eastern Conference with a record of 11-5-9 and 38 points, Nashville aims to secure a spot in the MLS Cup Playoffs’ first round by maintaining their standing within the top seven teams of the conference. The postseason path gets tougher for the No. 8 and No. 9 seeds, who must compete in the Wild Card round.
While Inter Miami’s chances of reaching the playoffs appear slimmer with a 6-3-14 record and 21 points, their ace in the hole is Lionel Messi. In the nine games where Messi has taken the field, Miami has emerged victorious every time. Messi’s impact was evident when he scored as a substitute in Miami’s 2-0 triumph over the New York Red Bulls in their recent encounter.
Questions loom regarding Messi’s participation in the upcoming clash against Nashville. Having played a significant amount of football in a short span—210 minutes across four days—Messi’s physical condition could be a concern. However, Miami coach Gerardo Martino confirmed that Messi would be part of the starting lineup against Nashville.
On the Nashville front, injury concerns are in the air. Key players like center back Walker Zimmerman, who missed the last game due to a lower body injury, and striker Sam Surridge, also grappling with a lower body injury, are listed as questionable for the match.
The stage is set at the DRV PNK Stadium in Fort Lauderdale, offering fans another chance to witness the captivating clash between Nashville SC and Inter Miami. As the excitement builds, anticipation grows for whether Nashville can reverse their recent fortune and emerge triumphant against their rivals in this high-stakes encounter.
