Our prediction for this MLS match:
Inter Miami and New York City go head to head at DRV PNK Stadium in what could be crucial game for the Blue Pigeons. New York City are eyeing their third consecutive league win, and a triumph over Inter Miami will see them book their place in the playoffs. Even though both Acevedo Tabarez and Tinnerholm are sidelined with injuries, away win should be considered as New York City have been in a fine form in the regular season finale.
A man to watch in the away team will be Valentin Castellanos, who has found his goal-scoring touch. Inter Miami, on the other hand, missed out on a place in the playoffs following a 2-1 loss to Atlanta United. The hosts have little to play for in Saturday’s clash, and, taking everything into account, away win should be considered. All Fray, Jones, Shawcross, Figal, Gibbs, Robinson, and Ulloa should miss out with injuries for the hosts.
