Charlotte FC vs. Nashville SC Prediction: Crowns Seeking Second Win in a Row

Saturday evening will see Nashville SC make its way to Bank of America Stadium to take on Charlotte FC. The two participants in this fixture snapped their winless runs last weekend collecting a much-needed three points. Head-to-head in their four previous clashes, Charlotte has only been able to snatch a victory once. These two already encountered each other in the competition with Nashville coming out on top winning 2-1 back in March.

Charlotte FC snapped their game losing streak last weekend winning comfortably over the Portland Timbers. Saturday's 2-0 victory was the third time in six home games the Crowns recorded a clean sheet. Earning their fourth victory has bumped Charlotte into the playoff zone currently sitting with 14 points in 11 matches played.

Meanwhile, Nashville SC at long last pocketed their second win of the campaign exploding on offence defeating CF Montreal 4-1. The win last weekend gave the Coyotes some breathing room from the basement in the Eastern Conference table, currently sitting in 12th place with 11 points to their name. This meeting with Charlotte will only be the fourth away match The Boys in Gold will have played in domestic league action.

Here, we will break down the betting odds and share our favourite picks for Charlotte FC vs. Nashville SC.

Charlotte FC vs. Nashville SC Betting Predictions

Charlotte FC Preview

Breaking the deadlock in the 54th minute last weekend and earning his first home start, Nikola Petkovic nabbed his first career MLS goal. Petkovic,21, displayed his potent play registering a total of six shots in 71 minutes of work where he could have seen the scoresheet on more than one occasion.

Kristijan Kahlina had the quieter night between the two goalkeepers on Saturday, still, Kahlina had to come up clutch when he needed to make three saves. In 11 starts in 2024, the 31-year-old managed to bank his third clean sheet. There is room for improvement for the Croatian keeper as he currently possesses a mediocre 67.5 save percentage which ranks him in the bottom half of MLS under that category.

Nashville SC Preview

History was made for the franchise last weekend as Sam Surridge became the second player in club history to register a hat trick. Surridge,25, got The Boys in Gold first on the scoresheet in the 12th minute and he never looked back finding the back of the net in the 47th and 82nd minutes. Thanks to his three-goal performance, the Englishmen now leads the club with five goals in eight appearances made.

Returning from his knee injury and surfacing into the starting 11 for the first time since early March, Walker Zimmerman came back with a vengeance. The gritty Center-back headed in his first goal of the campaign in the 21st minute. There was an unlucky break for Zimmerman as he was unfortunately credited with an own goal in the 65th minute, ruining the shutout for Joe Willis.

Charlotte FC vs. Nashville SC - My Pick

Of the two victories Nashville has accumulated, one is against this very same Charlotte club. The only difference is now the Coyotes will have to go to the Crown's fortress and perform under difficult circumstances. Charlotte currently boasts the fourth-best home record in MLS stockpiling 13 points in six games.

On the other hand, Nashville SC currently is tied for the lowest number of away points in MLS with one. Yes, they have only managed to play three away matches, but in the short sample size, they still haven’t impressed. The Boys in Gold have only hit the back of the net twice and their defence disappears conceding an average of three goals per game. With the minus-seven goal differential on the road for Nashville, all signs point towards backing the home dominate club in this meeting.
