The rivalry between Nashville SC and Inter Miami CF runs deep, with the clubs having faced off 13 times across various competitions. Both teams were MLS newcomers in 2020, adding intensity to their matchups.

Randall Leal made his much-anticipated 2024 debut for Nashville SC, coming on as a late substitute in the 85th minute. The midfielder had been sidelined with a hip injury sustained during international duty earlier in the year.

Nashville SC sported their iconic ‘Man in Black‘ kit for the first time this MLS season. The jersey, inspired by country music legend Johnny Cash, made its debut in 2023 and has become a symbol of the team’s connection to Nashville’s music heritage.

Next up for Nashville SC is a home game against the San Jose Earthquakes at GEODIS Park. The match is scheduled for Saturday, April 27, at 7:30 p.m. CT, and promises to be a thrilling showdown on the home turf.

In an action-packed game, Nashville SC took an early lead in the 2nd minute with an own goal by Inter Miami CF’s Franco Negri. However, Inter Miami struck back swiftly, finding the net through goals from superstars like Lionel Messi and Sergio Busquets.

The Nashville side showcased a strong attacking presence, registering 13 shots with nine on target but fell short against an on-form Inter Miami team. The defeat marked a learning opportunity for the Boys in Gold as they look to bounce back in their upcoming home games.

Key players like Josh Bauer and Dan Lovitz put in solid performances, while goalkeeper Lukas MacNaughton was a stalwart in defense. The team’s resilience was evident as they battled hard against a formidable Inter Miami squad.

Notable moments in the match included a penalty kick converted by Lionel Messi for Inter Miami and some impressive saves by Nashville SC’s goalkeepers Elliot Panicco and Joe Willis. The match served as a test of skill and strategy for both teams.

With the Nashville faithful eagerly waiting to cheer their team on in the upcoming home games, the Boys in Gold will be looking to regroup and come back stronger in their quest for MLS success.
