Our prediction for this MLS match:
Sunday’s football game at DRV PNK Stadium pits together Inter Miami and Cincinnati, the two bottom-table sides. Despite sitting in 11th place in the standings, Inter Miami could still grab a place in the playoffs as they are six points behind top seven in the Eastern Conference. All Alvarado, Fray, Jones, and Shawcross are out of contention with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team. Cincinnati, on the other hand, do not seem to be competitive at this level.
The rock-bottom side are on a an eight-game losing run, and seeing that they have nothing to play for in the season finale, home win should be considered. The likes of Kubo, Vallecilla, and van der Werff miss out with injuries for the visiting team. In their last encounter in the Major League Soccer Inter Miami defeated Cincinnati thanks to Brek Shea’s late goal.
