What to watch for in the Nashville SC vs. Atlanta United match:

The previous meeting between these two teams went in favor of the superior team in the standings. Atlanta United put together a strong defensive performance, keeping Nashville SC scoreless despite taking 15 shots to Atlanta’s six. Still, the quality of a shot is more important than quantity and Atlanta got the job done.

An unusual wrinkle in this one is the transfer of Gonzalo Nicolás "Pity" Martínez, who’s headed to Saudi Arabian club Al Nassr on an $18 million transfer as of Tuesday. Martinez was responsible for both of Atlanta United’s goals against Nashville SC in their last contest. His first goal gave his team the first and only lead of the competition at the 40-minute mark and the second came right at the end at the 87-minute mark.

If Nashville SC, an extremely low-scoring club, can put together the pieces and apply a concentrated effort, they can gain the respect of national viewership. This season has been rough for Nashville, which sits near the bottom of the Eastern Conference. There have been defensive flashes for this club, but it’s lacking a scoring threat in a major way.

At this point in the season, there’s no hope for Nashville SC to do anything but develop. This will give some of their prospects a good chance to compete under pivotal conditions. Each side could use this moral victory, regardless of the standings.
