Inter Miami vs Nashville: Preview, predictions and lineups

  • Inter Miami host Nashville in MLS this weekend
  • Lionel Messi's side looking to extend their lead at the top of the Eastern Conference
  • Nashville fighting to move clear of the bottom of the table

Inter Miami will be looking to continue their impressive start to the 2024 Major League Soccer campaign when they host Nashville SC on Sunday.

David Beckham's franchise team find themselves top of the Eastern Conference after nine games, managing four wins and three draws in the opening two months of the season. Gerardo Martino's men will be aiming to build on a significant win over Sporting Kansas City on the road last time out, with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez both on the scoresheet in a 3-2 triumph.

The table would suggest that Inter Miami should extend their lead at the top of the conference this weekend, with Nashville currently languishing second from bottom, albeit they have played two games fewer than their upcoming opponents.

The two clubs have already met twice this season, both coming in the CONCACAF Champions Cup last 16. Inter Miami won the second leg 3-1 after a 2-2 draw on the road in the first clash.

Inter Miami are without a number of players for the visit of Nashville this weekend, with Leonardo Campana, Robbie Robinson, Facundo Farias and Ian Fray still recovering from injuries.

Recent recruit Federico Redondo is also sidelined with a knee issue, with Robert Taylor and centre-back Serhiy Kryvtsov also missing for Martino's side. However, the biggest miss will be former Barcelona man Jordi Alba, who sustained a hamstring injury against Sporting KC last time out.

Nashville have fewer injury concerns than their weekend opponents but they are still without influential, 42-cap United States international Walker Zimmerman in the heart of the defence. He hasn't featured since the 2-2 draw with Inter Miami in early March.

Right-back Shaq Moore is also sidelined with a hip problem, but Randall Leal and Tyler Boyd are closing in on returns after injuries.

Nashville predicted lineup vs Inter Miami

Nashville predicted lineup (3-5-2): Willis; MacNaughton, Maher, Lovitz; Muyl, Yearwood, Godoy, Anunga, Shaffelburg; Mukhtar, Surridge.

Inter Miami vs Nashville score prediction

Inter Miami are clear favourites to continue their good run of form this weekend when they host Nashville, and should run out relatively comfortable winners. Despite some significant injuries, Messi, Suarez and Busquets should prove too much for a Nashville side who have struggled against the Herons in recent times.

However, with the likes of Hany Mukhtar and former Nottingham Forest striker Sam Surridge in attack, Nashville are capable of hurting an Inter Miami side without a clean sheet in their last ten matches.

Prediction: Inter Miami 3-1 Nashville
