🗞️ Team News: Charlotte FC
There aren’t many selection issues, with just one fitness concern for the Charlotte FC boss Christian Lattanzio to be concerned about thanks to an almost full-strength group of players. Guzmán Corujo (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) is out of contention.
We are thinking that Charlotte FC should line up in a 4-3-3 formation for this one, beginning the first half with Kristijan Kahlina, Bill Poni Tuiloma, Adilson Malanda, Jan Sobocinski, Nathan Byrne, Derrick Jones, Ashley Westwood, Brandt Bronico, Karol Swiderski, Enzo Copetti and Justin Meram.
🗞️ Team News: Nashville
In an otherwise full-strength squad, there is only the sole fitness problem for the Nashville manager Gary Smith to be concerned with. Nick DePuy (Achilles tendon surgery) won’t be in action.
We are inclined to think that Nashville appear most likely to elect for a 4-4-2 lineup, going with Joe Willis, Shaq Moore, Lukas MacNaughton, Jack Maher, Daniel Lovitz, Alex Muyl, Dax McCarty, Sean Davis, Fabrice Picault, Teal Bunbury and Hany Mukhtar.
We feel that Nashville and Charlotte FC are both capable of scoring here.
Will be interesting to see how this one goes, with a good chance of a draw. That is why we are leaning toward a tight encounter, finishing with a score draw at the end of the 90 minutes.
