Both sides have to field their teams without several star players

The New York Red Bulls won back-to-back matches before the last game in Major League Soccer. In the last regular season game, the team was on an away trip to face Columbus Crew. The match ended as a 3-0 defeat with midfielder Daniel Edelman getting sent off in the added time. Currently, the Metros stand sixth in overall Eastern Conference standings.

Inter Miami, on the other hand, are tied on points with NY Red Bulls’s last match opponents. However, a better goal difference keeps them at the 2024 MLS Eastern Conference peak. After a 5-3 aggregate win over Nashville in the CONCACAF Champions Cup Round of 16, the Herons were up against D.C. United in the league. A brace by Luis Suarez helped win the game 3-1.

Kick-Off:

Saturday, 23 March 2024 at 6:00 PM UK (11:30 PM IST)

Location: Red Bull Arena

Form

New York Red Bulls (in all competitions): L-W-W-D-L

Inter Miami (in all competitions): W-W-L-D-W

Players to Watch

Peter Stroud (New York Red Bulls)

The midfielder who wears number 5 on his back has so far started every game for Sandro Schwarz’s side in the MLS. This is just Peter Stroud’s second season with the Red Bulls. In the first season, the New Jersey boy had made 25 regular season appearances.

Luis Suarez (Inter Miami)

No Lionel Messi, No Problem. After Messi was taken off in the 2nd Leg of the Round of 16 Champions Cup game, he didn’t feature against DC United. Even though Luis Suarez came on from the bench, he still managed to score two goals helping his side win comfortably by 3-1. Given Messi is set to miss this game, the former FC Barcelona forward who now has 4 MLS goals will be the one to watch.

Match Facts

  • No regular-season meeting between these sides has ever ended in a draw
  • The hosts lost the last game 3-0. They even failed to find the back of the net even once against Columbus Crew
  • The Herons have scored 5 more total goals than the second-best-scoring side in the Eastern Conference

Match Prediction for NY Red Bulls vs Inter Miami

After a 3-0 defeat in the last game, the hosts will find it hard to recover given many players aren’t available also. With the likes of superstar Emil Forsberg and others out and away, Inter Miami can be a daunting outfit to handle. Expecting the visiting team to triumph here while the no-draw record continues to stand between both sides in the regular season.

Prediction: New York Red Bulls 1-2 Inter Miami
