Our prediction for this MLS match:
All eyes will be on DRV PNK Stadium when Inter Miami and Philadelphia Union face each other in the Major League Soccer. Inter Miami have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team beating Minnesota United, sharing the spoils with Dallas, while losing to Orlando City. The Herons produce much better showings at home than on the travels, with the team eyeing their fourth consecutive win in front of home fans, but this game will be anything but a walk in the park for Phil Neville’s troops.
The English tactician can’t count on Robbie Robinson, Brek Shea, and Ian Fray for the midweek clash. Philadelphia, on the other hand, produced their best display of the season against DC United, with the U’s crushing the capital club 7-0. The visitors aim to give fans yet another reason for celebration, but seeing that Inter Miami are tough to beat at home, the share of spoils is on the cards. There are no fresh injury worries in the away team.
