Nashville SC defeats Moca FC 3-0 in Santiago

The Moca FC held their own and only lost to Nashville SC 3-0 in the Concacaf Champions Cup opener played at the PUCMM soccer field.

From the report in The Tennessean, the difference should have been greater. The Tennessean reported: “There are only so many conclusions to be drawn when a squad with an estimated value of nearly US$44 million overwhelms a foe almost 200 times less expensive. But that hardly means there’s no enjoyment to be had, and Nashville will savor Thursday’s 3-0 win over Moca FC in the Dominican Republic in its first-ever Concacaf Champions Cup game.”

News reports on the game indicated key players Hany Mukhtar and Sam Surridge suffered injuries.

Moca FC now travels to Geodis Park in Nashville, Tennessee for the rematch on Wednesday, 28 February 2024. The winner of the game earns a date with Lionel Messi and Inter Miami in the round of 16 of the AmeriCup Qualifiers.
