After drawing with Inter Miami 2-2 last Thursday at GEODIS Park, the Boys in Gold travel to Ft. Lauderdale for a must-win match against Inter Miami in Concacaf Champions Cup action.

Key Storylines

  1. How the match could play out – Nashville enters Wednesday with a disadvantage in the aggregate score line. Although it’s 2-2, Inter Miami has the advantage in away goals, meaning the Boys in Gold will be forced to open up and go for a goal Wednesday in order to advance. Away goals only come into play in the case of an even score line at full time. 4-4 on aggregate is the only score line that would result in the need of extra time.
  1. What’s at stake – The winner of Nashville’s two-legged matchup with Miami would take on the winner between Monterrey and Cincinnati in the quarterfinals. From there, there would only be four matches across two rounds to secure a place in the final. Potential matchups include Tigres, Columbus Crew, Houston Dynamo, and Orlando City. The winner of the CCC wins a berth in the FIFA Club World Cup.

Players To Watch

Jacob Shaffelburg had an exceptional match against Miami last week that saw him score two of his best and most important goals in a Nashville SC shirt. The Boys in Gold will be looking for the Canadian winger to put in a similar performance on Wednesday.

Sergio Busquets is the midfield metronome for Inter Miami. His positioning and intelligent play in the middle of the field make him a different type of threat than that of his teammates. It will be difficult, but the Boys in Gold will need to cut off his service and distribution to Miami’s star studded front line as much as possible.
