Tomorrow, March 24th, 2019, the Nashville SC squad will travel to Harrison, New Jersey to take on the New York Red Bulls USL affiliate team, the New York Red Bulls II. Coming off of a tough 0-1 loss in last weeks match, Nashville SC is looking for a strong bounce-back game to boost them in the rankings.
In the Red Bulls first and only match of the 2019 season, they defeated the Swope Park Rangers 3-1 and are looking to do the same to our Nashville team. The Red Bulls shot a total of 23 shots with 15 of them being on target. Forward Tom Barlow netted 2 goals to which he is inevitably a must-stop for the NSC defensive line. This could mean trouble for NSC if they do not come out with aggression and means to put the ball in the net.
Keys to the Game
NSC has won the possession game in both of their first two games, yet, only coming out victorious once. The team will HAVE to get more shots on target and capitalize on their corner kick opportunities if they want a chance to win this game. We all know that keeper Matt Pickens will do his job keeping the ball out of the net, so it is essential for the offense to come out in attack mode.
We predict that Nashville SC will dominate the possession game, but unlike in their previous bout, they will win 2-1. With the aggressive styles of play both teams withhold, we wouldn’t be surprised if more than 4 goals are scored.
