INTER MIAMI V PHILADELPHIA
Inter Miami will be hoping to bounce back here following the 0-5 MLS defeat in their last game at the hands of New Eng. Revolution.
In that game, Inter Miami managed 49% possession and 15 shots at goal with 1 of them on target. For their opponents, New Eng. Revolution had 13 shots at goal with 11 on target. Traustason (15', 36'), Bunbury (27') and Buksa (45', 83') scored for New Eng. Revolution.
It’s been all too rare in recent games that Inter Miami have shown defensive steel. It will be a concern for them that The Herons have seen their defence breached in 6 of their previous 6 clashes, leaking 13 goals along the way.
Since being beaten in their last game against Orlando City in MLS action, Philadelphia Union will be aiming to make amends here.
The only scorer from Philadelphia Union was Przybyłko (68'). Michel (10') and Perea (59') scored for Orlando City.
The stats don’t lie, and Philadelphia Union have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, letting opponents get 8 goals in all. At the back, The U have been far from perfect. That kind of pattern isn’t assured to follow through into this match, of course.
Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
