Charlotte FC defeated Nashville SC, 4-1, last July in the only previous meeting between the sides. The four goals equals the most Charlotte FC has ever scored in an MLS match while it was also tied for the most goals Nashville SC has ever allowed in a match in club history.
Charlotte FC has won six of its last seven matches in all competitions (1), including a club-record four straight games following a 2-1 win over the Chicago Fire on Wednesday. Charlotte FC had won its last five home matches in all competitions, also a club record.
Nashville SC is unbeaten in seven straight matches in all competitions (W5 D2) following a 2-1 win over Inter Miami FC on Wednesday, equaling the second-longest run in club history (9 straight in June-August 2021). Only one of those seven matches was on the road, a 1-1 draw at D. C. United last Saturday.
Brandon Cambridge came off the bench to score both of Charlotte FC’s goals in the 2-1 comeback win over the Chicago Fire on Wednesday. Cambridge is the second player this MLS season to score two goals as a substitute in a match, joining Inter Miami FC’s Josef Martinez (May 6 vs Atlanta United FC).
Hany Mukhtar recorded his sixth assist of the season on Wednesday against Inter Miami FC to go along with his six goals, his eighth match with a goal contribution this year. Since the start of the 2021 season, Mukhtar has contributed to a goal in 48 matches, seven more than any other player.
