Less than three weeks ago, DC United and Inter Miami met in the 7th round of the MLS championship and are now clashing in a rematch. The two sides aren’t playing as planned and are way below positions projected before the season began. Also, the recent results aren’t very promising, and they don’t please the fans or the board as well. Therefore, the pressure for three points is massive, which increases the tension making Saturday’s game even more promising. Take five minutes of your time and read our preview for this event. You won’t regret it.
DC United (+125) has mixed results, with just two wins in the past seven games. The other five games saw the team from the US capital losing, and their overall score since the campaign began is three wins and six defeats, which puts them in the 10th place in the East, two points behind the playoff zone.
They posted a win on the road against Inter two weeks ago, 0-3, which was the fourth consecutive event in which we saw only one side scoring. In general, when DC plays, there are no patterns considering efficiency, but we’ve noticed that the previous three games at home saw under 2.5 goals.
To be precise, all of them finished with just one score, a win against Chicago Fire, and two defeats, to Philadelphia Union and Orlando City. All of them 1-0.
Inter Miami (+220) has one point fewer than the next rival and sits just behind them. That is why Phil Neville took the most recent failure pretty hard. It was a defeat against a direct opponent for the place in the playoffs.
That was the fifth contest in the latest six where Inter couldn’t win, posting three losses and two draws as well. Inter couldn’t score in three of the previous four tames, which shouldn’t be a problem for this side.
Their biggest name is Gonzalo Higuain, the Argentinian striker who played for several top teams in Europe. So far, Higuain has four goals scored.
DC won’t have three forwards ready for this game, Edison Flores, Nigel Robertha, and Erik Songa, who are all out due to injuries.
Robbie Robinson, Inter’s striker, won’t play in this match.
Head to Head Games
The last match occurred on May 30th. DC United smashed Inter in Miami, 0-3. The guests shocked Inter in the opening 20 minutes, scoring twice, through Ola Kamara and Paul Arriola. Kamara added one more score midway through the second half, sealing DC’s victory.
Inter has some troubles, especially in the offense, while on the other side, DC looks slightly sharper. United appears to play much better at their Audi Field than on the road, with two of their three wins coming at home. That is the reason why we suggest betting on DC’s victory on Saturday, with the odds on that currently sitting at +125. Three weeks ago, Hernan Losada’s crew was more than dominant against the same opponent, which is another reason why we want to bet on their victory.
Pick: DC United +125
