League play resumes on Thursday as FC Dallas host Nasvhille SC in the inaugural meeting between the two sides. Nashville, a new expansion side, are keen to return with a victory after successive defeats to begin their MLS season in March.

It's part of a two-game series between the pair over a four-day span after a five-month hiatus was lengthened by positive coronavirus tests last month. Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

FC Dallas vs Nashville SC Betting Tips

Both teams' withdrawal from the MLS is Back Tournament in July hit headlines after a combined 19 players and one coach tested positive for COVID-19 while in Orlando.

So while league rivals have returned to action over the past month, these two are playing catch-up. Dallas are unbeaten after two games in the Western Conference, while Nashville still await their first win of the campaign. David Beckham's Inter Miami are the only other remaining winless out in the East, so Gary Smith will want to rectify that here.

Dallas' summer signing Franco Jara could make his debut here, having joined from Liga MX side Pachuca in June. Luchi Gonzalez has already been left impressed by what he's seen from the 32-year-old striker, saying:

“Franco is a player we studied and followed for three years. We're really proud of our scouting job to have him here.

He has personality, an instinct around the goal, a winning spirit. He likes to press, can improv and cares about his teammates.”

Should he feature, Nashville's defence must be on high alert. Their last competitive clean sheet was in October 2019 – during USL play – and they've struggled against tougher opposition. After a lengthy absence, will that trend continue here?

FC Dallas vs Nashville SC Correct Score Predictions

It's unfair to definitively judge either side based on their early season form, considering the length of time between games. I'm going safe with BTTS here, as both sides will look to impress on their return to competitive action. Dallas are favourites but it won't be a straightforward clash.
