Thursday’s match between Philadelphia Union and Inter Miami will take place at the DRV PNK Stadium following Philadelphia Union’s convincing victory the previous time around.
The hosts, on the other hand, will be aiming to turn things around at home after two straight games on the road without a victory.
Philadelphia Union beat DC United convincingly 7-0 at Subaru Park on Saturday to make it two straight victories at home.
For Jim Curtin’s team, Julian Carranza scored three goals, and Alejandro Bedoya and Mikael Uhre each added two more.
The U are currently tied for second place in the Eastern Conference standings with the New York Red Bulls on points, although having played one fewer game.
The following challenge comes from a rival squad that has only won one of their previous six matchups since 2020.
After conceding the fewest goals away from home this season, the visitors on Thursday simply need to slightly boost the ante at the attacking end of the game to improve their already reasonable fortunes on the road.
Inter Miami lost their eighth straight away match on Sunday, falling 1-0 to Orlando City at the Exploria Stadium.
Before a late own goal from Damion Lowe decided the game, Phil Neville’s team was on track to earn a point with the scores equal entering second-half stoppage time.
The Herons now occupy the tenth slot in the Eastern Conference standings, four points behind the final playoff spot with one game remaining.
The hosts on Thursday will bet on themselves to win once more in front of their supporters as they currently have six victories in their past seven home games.
Prior to this match, Philadelphia Union had a stronger run of results, but Inter Miami’s home record shows they are no pushovers. We expect the teams to balance one another out and ultimately agree on one point each.
