The Chicago Fire team will challenge the Inter Miami team in a MLS in Soldier Field Stadium, Illinois on Wednesday, October 04, 2023. For streaming coverage of Chicago Fire vs Inter Miami, preview and how to watch it, see in this article.
Inter Miami will host Chicago Fire on Wednesday (4/10) evening in the continuation of MLS 2023. This is an important match for the two teams who are both fighting to qualify for the final round of the Eastern region play-offs. The gap between the two teams is currently only 4 points, with Inter Miami ranked second from bottom and Chicago Fire in 11th place.
Inter Miami is going through a difficult time, especially after losing star Lionel Messi to injury. Without Messi, Inter Miami did not win in the last three matches, with two draws and one loss. Messi is a key player for Inter Miami, he has scored 15 goals and provided 12 assists since joining the Florida side at the start of the season.
Apart from Messi, Inter Miami also lost Jordi Alba who plays an important role in the back line. Alba has a hamstring injury and is expected to be out until the end of the month. Losing Alba makes Inter Miami’s defense fragile, they have conceded 10 goals in the last five matches.
However, there is good news for Inter Miami, Messi has reportedly recovered from injury and is ready to play against Chicago Fire. Coach Martino has not yet confirmed whether Messi will play from the start or come on as a substitute, but Messi’s presence will certainly increase Inter Miami’s confidence and motivation.
Chicago Fire are also not in the best shape, they are also winless in the last five matches, with one win, two draws and two losses. Chicago Fire also have problems at the back, they have conceded 12 goals in the last five matches.
Chicago Fire also have several injured players, such as Bezerra, Mueller, Navarro and Pineda. They are important players for Chicago Fire, especially Bezerra who is the team’s top scorer with 10 goals. Without them, Chicago Fire will find it difficult to create opportunities and withstand Inter Miami’s attacks.
This will be the fourth meeting between Inter Miami and Chicago Fire, with both teams having one win, one draw and one loss. Their last meeting took place in February, with the score being a goalless draw. This match is predicted to be fierce and tight, with both teams not wanting to lose points.
However, with home advantage and the possible return of Messi, Inter Miami seems to have a greater chance of winning. Messi is a player who can make a difference on the pitch, he can score goals, provide assists or set the tempo of the game. If Messi can play, Inter Miami can most likely end the series of bad results and maintain hopes of qualifying for the final round of the play offs.
