Inter Miami vs Philadelphia Union Preview

  • Date: Sunday, September 27
  • Time: 7.30 p.m. (Eastern Time)
  • Venue: Subaru Park in Chester, Pennsylvania

Inter Miami haven’t started their inaugural year in the MLS successfully. In the MLS Is Back Tournament, the David Beckham-owned team lost every single game. They haven’t been much better in the 2020 MLS season, at least not yet. So far, after 13 rounds, this team is in 13th place in the Eastern Conference out of possible 14 places.

The reason why they’re not at the very bottom is that despite having the same number of points as DC United, as well as the exact same score difference, Inter Miami have scored one goal more. The good news is that the war is still not lost for this team. They still have a chance to compete for a spot in the Playoffs, but for that to happen, Inter Miami need to start playing much better.

Unfortunately for Inter Miami fans, their next opponent is one of the best teams in the conference. Philadelphia Union are currently in the third spot, with some pretty good performances this month. In fact, this team is without a defeat in four rounds. Inter Miami are hopping that their new signing will change this.

Gonzalo Higuain to the Rescue

The 32-year-old is an absolute legend of soccer, having played for such illustrious clubs as Real Madrid, Napoli, AC Milan, Chelsea, and Juventus. Nicknamed El Pipita (Little Pipe), Higuain is famous for his goal-scoring ability. In his professional career, he’s scored a total of 306 goals.

Almost half of those goals happened while he was wearing the Real Madrid jersey. Still, he’ll probably keep his Napoli times in fondest memory. In three seasons spent in Naples, the Argentine scored 91 goals. Thirty-six of those happened in the season 2014-15 when he broke the record for the highest number of goals scored in the Italian Serie A.

Inter Miami vs Philadelphia Union Prediction

With Higuain up in the front, Inter Miami seem capable of giving Philadelphia Union a run for their money. Without him, not so much. What this means is that our Inter Miami vs Philadelphia Union prediction depends entirely on whether the MLS will allow El Pipita to make his debut this weekend.

Everything is still uncertain at the moment of writing, so you better wait a while longer before placing your bets. However, if you’re eager to make your Inter Miami vs Philadelphia Union bet ASAP, we say bet on goals. We should see Over 2.5 in this game.
