Game Preview

Inter Miami is 3-1-2 in the 2024 MLS season, with both of its losses happening when Lionel Messi was away. The most recent of those happened last weekend when the New York Red Bulls destroyed the Herons 4-0. Messi missed that game due to a thigh injury, but we could see him come back on Saturday.

But even if we don’t see him return, his teammates should do better than last weekend. The thing is that this time, they’re playing on home turf, which is where they’ve always been great. In their most recent home game, they beat Nashville SC 3-1 on home turf.

Another reason why Inter Miami is expected to have a good game on March 30 is that they’re playing against a team that’s 1-0-4 on the season. NYCFC’s only win happened against Chicago Fire, a team that’s doing okay this season, but which was one of the worst teams in the league last year.

Inter Miami vs. New York City FC Prediction

Inter Miami is arguably the best team in the MLS. The Herons, perhaps, rely too heavily on Lionel Messi, but they do have many other amazing players on the roster in 2024. That said, not winning against NYCFC on Saturday would be a major embarrassment, especially because the game is played in Florida.
