Teammate Daniel Lovitz opened the scoring in the 6th minute and it looked as if the 1-0 lead for the visitors would remain until the second half, when a triangle between Randall Leal, Dax Mccarty and Hany Mukhtar before the end of the first half ended up being the goal that increased the lead for the Nashville team.

The German continued to surprise on the field in the second half, scoring his second goal of the match in the 50th minute.
