Key Storylines

  • Undefeated at home against the reigning champs – Nashville SC is undefeated against the Columbus Crew at home (1W-0L-1D). The first meeting took place at Nissan Stadium in 2021, with the Boys in Gold taking a 3-1 win over Crew at GEODIS Park last season. Nashville SC is also undefeated at home at GEODIS Park across all competitions this season. 
  • International players return to the squad - Panamanian midfielder Aníbal Godoy and Canadian winger Jacob Shaffelburg have returned to Gary Smith’s squad after representing their countries in Concacaf Nations League and a Copa America play-in match respectively. 

Shaffelburg scored a stoppage time golazo during Canada’s match against Trinindad and Tobago and will add a boost to Nashville’s attacking options against Columbus.

Opposition Player To Watch

Columbus poses threats all over the field, but look to their midfield at Saturday’s match. Darlington Nagbe, the legendary MLS midfielder who has won MLS Cup at every team he’s played for, is press resistant and composed on the ball. He will be dictating the play for the Crew when they visit the Boys in Gold and GEODIS Park.
