Inter Miami will face a tough challenge when they host Sporting Kansas City at the DRV PNK stadium in the MLS 2023 competition on Saturday night. This is the first meeting between the two teams in history. This match is predicted to be very exciting and fierce because both teams want to win tickets to the Playoffs.
Inter Miami is a new team that was founded in 2018 and joined MLS since 2020. They have never had a great run in the previous seasons. But since the arrival of Lionel Messi, they have become very strong. Currently, Miami is on a streak of 11 matches without losing in all competitions, winning the 2023 Leagues Cup title and advancing to the U.S. Finals. Open Cup 2023.
Messi is the main inspiration for Inter Miami since he moved to America. The Argentina captain has scored 11 goals and provided 5 assists in 11 games for Miami. He was also involved in 16 goals for the Black and Pink teams in just 11 matches, including 11 goals against opponents.
However, in this match Inter Miami will not be strengthened by Messi, who has returned to the national team to take part in the 2026 World Cup qualifiers in the South American zone. It’s a big loss for the home side who have become accustomed to relying on Messi’s scoring and assisting abilities.
On top of that, they also don’t have a suspended DeAndre Yedlin. Other important players such as Robert Taylor, David Ruiz, Josef Martinez, Serhiy Kryvtsov, Diego Gomez, Benjamin Cremaschi, Drake Callender and Edison Azcona should also return to the national team.
In contrast, Sporting Kansas City is a team rich in achievements and traditions in America, having won the MLS Cup twice in 2000 and 2013, and four times won the U.S. Open Cup. However, this year they didn’t play too impressively with only 8 wins, 8 draws and 11 losses.
Kansas has had a pretty good performance when playing at home winning 3, drawing 1 in the last 4 matches. But they are very weak when playing away from home winning only 1 of 13 matches this season.
Compared to Inter Miami, Sporting Kansas City lost fewer players. They just couldn’t play Gadi Kinda and Marinos Tzionis who had to return to the national team. Apart from that, Kortne Ford was also unable to play due to a long injury.
Therefore, Inter Miami is expected to play defensively and hope to get a valuable point. On the other hand, Sporting KC will try to create dangerous opportunities to break into the Miami defense. But they won’t have it easy either because Miami has a solid defense. So, a draw is the highest possibility for this fight.
