A win and a draw without superstar player Lionel Messi, might be a good result for Inter Miami CF team. But it has done little good for their position on the table. They are still 5 points away from playoff spot and a win in their last game would have gotten them closer to their target. Now they need Lionel Messi's brilliance more than ever when they take on New York City FC.
New York City FC won't be handing Inter an easy win because their current form looks very good. They are on a bounce of back-to-back wins against Orlando City and Toronto FC.Grab Your Signup Bonus
Inter Miami CF

New York City FC
New York City FC are playing with lots of confidence as their results are looking quite good with those back-to-back wins against Orlando City and Toronto FC. Andres Perea, Andres Jasson and Julian Fernandez were all on target in the 3-0 win over Toronto FC a few days ago.
New York City are currently unbeaten in their last 5 matches. They have won 3 and drawn 2 of those 5 matches.
New York City need no reminder that they need to keep winning. They have just 1 point more than DC United. They are currently 9th in the Eastern Conference and a negative result might see them drop off the playoff zone, which will be a serious problem for the team.
New York City won Inter Miami the last time they faced each other back in March. Christopher McVey's own goal was enough to separate both sides at full time. But that match offers little comfort for New York City because Inter Miami have improved tremendously since then.
