New England vs Nashville SC Prediction
New England Revolution have been in fine form of late and picked up consecutive victories against Montreal Impact and DC United.
Nashville have blown hot and cold and have just two victories from their last six league matches.
Both sides have been tight at the back and not too potent in attack, suggesting that we could be in for a low-scoring game but the home side could do enough to pick up a narrow victory.
