What Nashville have done well to compensate for their stumbling attack is bolster their defence. Its seen the side rekindle its stuttering season with shot stopper Joe Willis take charge of defence to emerge with a cleansheet the last time around.
More than the win, what Minnesota United would have cherished the last time around is the cleansheet they registered. It came in the midst of a period of turmoil for them, a much yearned for shut down.
And with Nashville scoring a frugal 11 goals till now, Minnesota United know they can rifle their way through to another cleansheet. It sees us opt for all of Romain Metanire, Bakaye Dibassy and Michael Boxall from the club.
Elsewhere, with the one assist to his name, Daniel Lovitz will represent us from Nashville.
Kevin Molino is firing on all cylinders this season. With fuel in his tank, he’s clocked the most number of goals at 6 for his side, ones which have torched the club all the way into the pinnacles of the points tally.
Its not only been him though whose made for such tricky defending against from Minnesota United. Robin Lod has fazed defences as well, scoring on five occasions for the side to give the side the identity of a ruthless and relentless attacking setup.
The two will find company in the services of Jan Gregus. He’s been the main reason behind the two scoring with such aplomb with ability to layup the ball for his counterparts seeing him pile on the four assists.
In a side which has only 11 goals to its name, the one goal and two assists Dax McCarthy has speak about his calibre as a player. He’s found ample assistance in Hany Mukhtar who has the two assists as well to see the two form the partnership from Nashville in this slot.
Kei Kamara has assiduously taken over charge up the park for his side, a player whose gripping performances see him close out our setup for today.

Six goals and two assists see Molino be our captain for today while Lod is the vice-captain.
Willis, Dibassy, Lovitz, Boxall, Metanire, Dax, Hany, Jan, Molino, Lod, Kamara
