Inter Miami possible starting lineup:
Marsman; Makoun, Figal, Shawcross, Pirez; Ulloa, Matuidi, Pizarro; Robinson, Morgan, Higuain
Philadelphia Union possible starting lineup:
Freese; Wagner, Elliot, Glesnes, Mbaizo; Martinez, Monteiro, Bedoya; Gazdag, Santos, Przybylko
We say: Inter Miami 1-1 Philadelphia Union
Given their form coming into the contest, Inter Miami will be the happier of the two sides should it end in a draw, and we are predicting the game to pan out that way. However, it will be no surprise if the visitors end up nicking it by the odd goal.
