Nashville have drawn three and lost three of their last six games, and have only scored three goals in that period. That form means Nashville are trudging along in 11th spot in the Eastern Conference Standings.
Houston Dynamo are not in great form themselves, having only managed to register a solitary victory in their last eight games. They lost their last match 1-0 to Inter Miami CF.

Houston Dynamo vs Nashville SC Prediction
Both sides are in atrocious form heading into this game, and there must be a feeling of desperation in both camps. Houston Dynamo and Nasvhille both don't know where their next win is coming from, with the football they are playing right now. We are predicting that neither will be celebrating at the end of this game either.
