Our prediction for this MLS match:
Inter Miami will be aiming to make amends for a heavy 4-0 loss to New York Red Bulls when they take on Nashville at DRV PNK Stadium on Thursday morning. Inter Miami failed to extend their winning run to four games, but despite the defeat they remained in the playoffs race. Defender Jorge Figal misses the midweek game through suspension, with Suriname international Kelvin Leerdam likely to step up.
As always, experienced attacker Gonzalo Higuain will lead the line for the hosts. His brother Federico, on the other hand, has lost his place in the starting XI. Nashville aim to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Toronto, and seeing that both sides will go for a win in the midweek game, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. All Alvarado, Fray, Gibbs, and Jones are injured for the hosts, while there should be no absentees in the away team.
