Our prediction for this MLS match:
Inter Miami and Atlanta United face each other at Inter Miami CF Stadium in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Thursday’s program. The newcomers desperately needed a win against Orlando City, and they managed to get one. Inter Miami did well to put an end to their five-game losing run in MLS, and, no doubt, they are capable of matching Martinez-less Atlanta at home ground.
The Five Stripes defeated Nashville 2-0 at home in their last league match, but we predict that key attacker Josef Martinez (injury) is going to be sorely missed in the midweek clash. A close encounter is on the cards in Miami, and we believe that punters can find value in betting on draw. The likes of Acosta and Ulysse are likely to miss the match with injury for the home team.
