Nashville SC aren't exactly an "A Class" team at the moment and besides from the fact that they have beaten Seattle Sounders in their only 2 games against each other, there's no strong reason why they should win this game.
In their last 5 matches in the league, they have won only Sporting Kansas City, and then they played a draw against Inter Miami, Charlotte FC and San Jose Earthquakes and lost against Atlanta.
Their last game ended in a 1-1 draw with San Jose Earthquakes and Teal Bunbury's opener for Nashville SC was chopped off in the 74th minute by Matthew Hoppe's equalizer.

Analysis and Predictions
Nashville SC has the record in their favor. But I wouldn't write off Seattle Sounders just yet. Nashville have beaten Seattle Sounders in the past by narrow margins and that shows how close both teams are in terms of quality. The current state of both teams points to a very tight draw between these teams at the end of 90 minutes. And they both don't like to score plenty of goals. So we don't expect to see more than 2 goals in this game.
