Inter Miami failed to make the playoffs last season, and now the team is no better off. David Beckham's club is only 11th in the East, and management is trying to rectify the situation. Recently, Alejandro Possuelo and Jean Corentin, who have a lot of experience playing in Europe, joined Miami. Posuelo was one of Toronto's key players, and his presence in the middle of the field should transform the team. Blaise Matuidi is only listed at the club and does not appear, possibly because of his transfer scandal. Only Robbie Robinson is in Inter Miami's infirmary, while Jean Corentin finally received a visa and is ready to take the field.
In the last match of the regular championship Phil Neville's wards lost on the road to New York City - 0:2. The opponent held the initiative and won deservedly, and Inter Miami only had to snap back in hope of a lucky goal. Gonzalo Higuaín created some good opportunities for his teammates, but they were clueless. The defeat against the Citizens was the 4th in the last 5 games. One of the games was a friendly, Inter Miami didn't cope with Barcelona, 0:6.
The recent Major League Soccer newcomer is slowly settling into the elite. So Cincinnati could very well have a shot at making the playoffs. The Orange and Blues are seventh in the Eastern Conference, and there's a chance to move up as well. Brandon Vazquez is 5th in the MLS scoring race with 11 goals, but the club still decided to slightly bolster the offensive line by acquiring Sergio Douglas from Philadelphia. So far, Douglas rarely makes the roster, although he had quite successful seasons with his former team. Douglas' participation is currently in question due to injury. Ronald Matarrita and Dominique Badji will definitely not play.
Last game Cincinnati played at home against Nashville (1:1) and now the team's winless streak is 6 games, although during this period there was only one defeat. Pat Noonen's team conceded a quick goal from Nashville, but then took the initiative. The Orange and Blues had few real chances to score, but at least they deserved to draw. In total, Cincinnati took 16 shots on goal, but only four of them hit the net.
- Inter Miami has won 7 home games and lost 2.
- Cincinnati won 3 of last ten away games.
- Inter Miami conceded 17 goals in last eight matches.
Expert Betting Tips
Cincinnati has a knack for converting chances on the home court, ranking 3rd in the Eastern Conference in xG in away games, behind Philadelphia and New York City. The Orange and Blues had a good showing in their last matchup, while Inter Miami lost. The hosts lack stability, and the defense has been slumping a lot lately. Cincinnati looked much better in last week's head-to-head meeting, and they are capable of scoring on the road.
