When MLS teams Nashville SC and Inter Miami square off at GEODIS Park on Saturday night, the first-ever Leagues Cup champion will be announced.
Liga MX is entirely shut out of the championship after Nashville’s 2-0 win against Monterrey on Tuesday. After VAR disallowed a goal, Hany Mukhtar assisted in the victory, and Walker Zimmerman contributed to the clean sheet.
Inter Miami hopes that Lionel Messi and Sergio Busquets will guide them to at least another final this season as they make their first final appearance of any kind in club history. But winning a title is the top aim, and less than a month after signing, Messi has the potential to leave his mark on the team.
Will the greatest player of his generation lead Inter Miami to new heights, or will the proverbial fat lady be singing in the Music City? We discuss that and more in our Nashville SC vs Inter Miami picks and predictions for Saturday, August 19.
