Match Notes 

  • In Nashville SC’s MLS debut, Atlanta United is billed as the favorite at +110, Nashville is +210 to win, and a tie is +255. Nashville will have to rely on their three key veterans — Walker Zimmerman, Dax McCarty, and Anibal Godoy — to pull off the upset. Atlanta will counter with their explosive offensive trio in Josef Martinez, Pity Martinez, and Ezequiel Barco.
  • Nashville SC enters the MLS as one of two expansion teams in 2020, bringing the league to 24 teams. The regular season schedule will consist of 34 matches, 17 home and 17 away. Many games will be nationally televised including Nashville SC’s Saturday night debut on FOX.
  • The buzz in Nashville for the club’s MLS debut is real. Tickets sold for the match against Atlanta United have surpassed 50,000, and that number is only growing. CEO Ian Ayre is looking to build off the momentum created this weekend: “It’s the same for any team, whether you’re an expansion team or an established team in the league. Particularly in a city like Nashville with so much going on, you can’t expect people to show up. You have to earn their trust in the team. That’ll be about putting on a great performance – we won’t win every game, but hope we win plenty – and putting on a great show.”
