NSH vs MIA Fantasy Prediction: Winner of today’s encounter keeps its soiree in the 2020-21 season alive.
Despite being one of the most power packed sides in the 2020-21 edition of the MLS, Inter Miami completely failed to live upto their stature. The side needed its culminating Eastern Conference tie to just about scamper its way into today’s fixture.
Winning their showdown against Cincinnati by a 2-1 scoreline, Inter Miami stuttered their way into 10th spot by the one point. Extremely fortuitous to be making their presence felt in the playoffs for the quarter-finals, Inter Miami will be looking to make the most of their good luck when they take on Nashville.
Finishing in seventh place, Nashville managed to end their Eastern Conference sojourn with a win as well. While the win wasn’t enough to see them earn a spot in the top 6 and canter their way through to the quarter-finals with goal-difference refraining them, the club will be looking to build on the momentum garnered from that tie.
This has all the makings of an edge of the seat thriller, a contest which should just about see Nashville win this by the one goal margin owing to their defensive setup.
Badji and Abu are both spending time on the injury bed, ones which will rule out the two for this contest.
Luis, Acosta and Denso are all ruled out with injuries for Inter Miami while Reyes is red carded for the tie.
Probable Playing XI
Joe Willis, David Romney, Walker Zimmerman, Daniel Lovitz, Alistair Johnston, Dax McCarty, Brian Anunga, Matt LaGrassa, Derrick Jones, Alan Winn, Hany Mukhtar.
Robles, Sweat, Torres, Figal, Nealis, Trap, Ulloa, Pellegrini, Pizzaro, Morgan, Carranza.
Nashville – Hany Mukhtar: 4 Goals, 4 Assists.
Inter Miami – Morgan: 5 Goals, 7 Assists.
NSH vs MIA Fantasy Prediction
Inter Miami’s John McCarthy will find a place in our setup as the goal-keeper for this clash. He’s earned laurels due to his tenacity, one which has seen him keep a string of shots at bay.
Although Nashville didn’t really impress this season in the conference stage, the side still managed to finish as high as seventh due to the defensive side of their game. The club conceded a meagre 22 points, a figure which was a testament to the resilience and resolve of their backline.
It’s a club which always stands in with a fair shout of pulling off a shut down to see us opt for the services of Alistair Johnston, Daniel Lovitz and Dave Romney from the club.

Inter Miami’s top scorer in the league with a staggering 5 goals and 7 assists, Lewis Morgan becomes the first pick from the club in this docket. The duo of Rodolfo Pizarro and Blaise Matuidi links up with him, an indomitable pairing which is capable of not only doing the dirty work but also squaring the ball to its compatriots.

Gonzalo Higuaín has treated his stay at the Inter Miami as a holiday, one where he’s thrown his feet up in the air and decided to see out his career. Despite this, we’ll still be opting for him owing to his ability to pull off a goal.
Nashville on the other hand will be represented by striker Daniel Rios for the impending scrimmage.
Captain and vice-captain
