Our prediction for this MLS match:
Inter Miami will look to recover from a heavy 4-1 loss to Chicago Fire when they take on Cincinnati on Sunday morning. The Herons are eager to put an end to their four-match winless run and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against Cincinnati. Leo Messi is a major doubt and the Argentina superstar will be assessed ahead of the kick-off, while all Fray, Gregore, Jean, and Negri remain in the recovery room.
The visitors, on the other hand, are eager to retain top position in the standings. The Eastern Conference leaders aim to recover from a 2-1 loss to New York Red Bulls, but seeing that the playoffs-chasing hosts want this win more than the visitors, we are tempted to put our money on the Herons. Alvas Powell is banned for the match, while both Arqumides Ordonez and Stiven Jimenez are sidelined with injuries.
Highlighted Player (Lionel Messi):
Lionel Messi is regarded as one of the best players in the history of football. He was born on 24 June, 1987 in Rosario and he began his football career at Newell’s Old Boys. At age 10 he was diagnosed with a growth hormone deficiency, but having realized his potential at a young age, Barcelona decided to pay for his treatment.
Messi joined Barca in 2001 and he has been playing for the Camp Nou outfit ever since. The Argentine magician has won eight La Liga trophies with Barca and he helped the Catalan giants lift no less than four Champions League titles (2005/2006, 2008/2009, 2010/2011, 2014/2015).
In the 2011/2012 La Liga campaign Messi scored 50 goals for Barca, while netting 14 goals in the 2011/2012 Champions League campaign. The five-time Golden Ball award winner has established himself as Barcelona’s all-time top scorer, but he has yet to win a trophy with Argentina national team at major tournaments. Leo Messi, though, has won Olympic Gold Medal (2008) and FIFA World Youth Championship (2005), with la Albiceleste.
