Our prediction for this MLS match:
Columbus Crewe and Inter Miami go head to head at Lower.com Field in what is expected to be an interesting Major League Soccer game. Columbus kicked off the new MLS campaign in style, but they head into Sunday’s clash following a 1-0 loss to Charlotte. Will Sands has joined the likes of Eloy Room, Cucho Hernandez, Luis Diaz, Kevin Molino, and Josh Williams in the recovery room.
The Herons, on the other hand, do not seem to be at the top of their game, with the team losing each of their last six league matches. Since Inter Miami have been struggling in front of goal of late, we predict that the hosts are going to emerge triumphant in Sunday’s encounter. New signing Josef Martinez is pushing for a start, while all Nick Marsman, Gregore, Robbie Robinson, Noah Allen, Edison Azcona, and Ian Fray remain on the sidelines
