Our prediction for this MLS match:
Inter Miami and New England Revolution take on each other at DRV PNK Stadium in a highly-anticipated MLS game. Inter Miami made a slow start to the season, and, no doubt, they are desperate to put an end to their four-game losing run. Keep in mind, though, that Ryan Sailor has joined the likes of Victor Ulloa, Joevin Jones, and Ian Fray in the recovery room.
The Revs, on the other hand, aim to make amends for a 1-0 loss to New York Red Bulls. Since both sides will go for a win in Saturday’s showdown, both teams to score betting option should be considered. As for the visiting side, Poland midfielder Adam Buksa serves a one-match ban, while goalkeeper Matt Turner continues to miss out with a foot injury. You should know that six goals in total were netted in the previous two meetings between the two sides.
Highlighted Player (Gonzalo Higuain):
Widely regarded as one of the most talented strikers of his generation, Argentina’s Gonzalo Higuain started his career with River Plate. A transfer to Real Madrid for €12 million in 2007 catapulted him to the top league. His six years at Madrid was capped with three La Liga titles and 107 goals in 190 appearances.
Higuain became a crowd favorite at the Santiago Bernabeu and there was wide spread resentment among supporters over his transfer to Italian club Napoli in 2013 for a reported €40 million. Although he wasn’t able to win the Serie A, he carried the hopes of Napoli in 2015-16 and equaled 87-year-old record of 36 goals in a top-flight season.
Higuain or El Pipita as he is fondly called has also been a regular with his country having represented Argentina at two FIFA World Cups and as many Copa America tournaments. Higuain has a great eye for the goal and his goal scoring record bears a testament to this.
Highlighted Team (New England Revolution):
Unlike famous NFL club New England Patriots, the Revolution have yet to win the domestic trophy. New England participated five times in the MLS Cup final, but they were more than fortunate not to lift the silverware. The Revs played their last final in 2014, with the team losing to LA Galaxy in the title game at StubHub Center. New England Revolution, though, clinched the North American SuperLiga trophy in 2008 and that is considered as the club’s biggest success.
It has to be noted that the Revs defeated Houston Dynamo on penalties in the final of the tournament. New England Revolution were founded in 1994 and Gillette Stadium is the home ground of the club. Legendary defender Alexi Lalas played for the Revolution (1996-1997) and he scored three goals for the Gillette Stadium outfit. Fellow USA ace Clint Dempsey was part of the team as well and you should know that he netted 25 goals in 71 league appearances for the club.
