Nashville saw their unbeaten streak come to an end in Miami last week, where they fell to Inter Miami by 2-1. They will now return home for their next assignment, where they will play host to DC United. DC United have been in really good for since that 7-1 thrashing of Toronto FC back in early June.

Nashville (6-2-10) are coming off a 2-1 loss on the road against Inter Miami. They actually scored the first goal in that match but Inter Miami managed to take the three points with a last minute goal at the 95th minute. That loss put an end to their 9-match unbeaten streak (4-0-5). However, Nashville are still sitting at the 5th spot of the Eastern Conference with 28 points, in a triple tie with Philadelphia and NYCFC above them. Nashville have the best home record in the Eastern Conference (6-0-5), scoring 22 and conceding just 10 goals in the process.

DC United (8-7-3) conceded an early goal in their home match against Montreal but completely dominated them in the rest of the match. They pulled even at the end of the first half and overturned the result in their favor at the start of the second. That 2-1 win extended their unbeaten streak to 5 matches (3-0-2). DC United are now sitting at the 6th spot of the Eastern Conference with 27 points, scoring 27 and conceding 21 goals so far. They have not been anything special on the road so far (2-5-3), scoring 13 and conceding 16 goals so far.

Nashville did a great job to beat DC United in the first ever match they played against each other last season. They have been growing steadily and this season they are one of the strongest home teams. DC United have not been great on the road and Nashville should have the upper hand here.
