Our prediction for this MLS match:
Cincinnati and Inter Miami go head to head at TQL Stadium on Saturday evening. Cincinnati made a slow start to the season, with the team losing to both Austin and DC United, but they did well to beat Orlando CIty at the weekend. Pat Noonan’s troops aim to give fans yet another reason for celebration, and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach against Miami. There are no absentees in the home team as both Matarrita and Vallecilla have recovered from their respective injuries.
Inter Miami, on the other hand, aim to make amends for back-to-back loss to Austin and Los Angeles. Since Gonzalo Higuain and Co. will go for a win as well, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. Brek Shea is banned for the match, while all Gibbs, Duke, Ulloa, Marsman, Jones, and Fray should miss out with injuries.

After spending four seasons at AZ Alkmaar, Haris Medunjanin joined Spanish side Valladolid and he appeared in 42 league games for Pucela.
