On the surface, it does not look like the most successful start to Nashville SC’s Major League Soccer career. Two games, two defeats, just one goal and no clean sheets. The bare statistics are not particularly positive and paint a rather bleak picture of what is to come.
But dig a little deeper and their struggles are not as extensive as the basic results make it seem. In fact, there are plenty of reasons to be positive about the team that Nashville will be able to put out, especially defensively.
Through two games, Nashville have conceded three goals.
