Why you should back Inter Miami

Inter Miami could be short handed in this match if Messi can't go. Jordi Alba (hamstring) has already been ruled out. However, Inter Miami are facing an opponent that struggles mightily away from home. NYCFC have only one win in 15 MLS road games this season, the second-fewest road victories in all of MLS. NYCFC also have the third-fewest road points (10) in the league, and Inter Miami have only two losses in 16 overall matches since Messi's arrival. 

The club is unbeaten with Messi in the lineup but, even as he has missed time, Inter Miami have not lost an MLS home match since June 3 and the club has only one loss in the last seven MLS games overall. Messi is a dynamic force, scoring 11 goals and producing eight assists in 12 appearances, but he isn't alone. Sergio Busquets is also a tremendous player, and former MLS MVP Josef Martinez scored goals for Inter Miami in both the semifinal and final of the U.S. Open Cup. See picks at SportsLine

Why you should back NYCFC

While NYCFC have struggled on the road this season, the club is peaking at the right time. NYCFC enter on a six-game unbeaten streak, including five unbeaten matches in MLS play, and that includes impressive wins over Toronto FC and Orlando City in the last two matches. NYCFC throttled Toronto FC by a three-goal margin, and the win over Orlando City featured a 7-2 edge in shots on target. 

NYCFC also won the first head-to-head meeting against Inter Miami earlier this season at Yankee Stadium, and NYCFC has strong resistance. The club is in the top four of the Eastern Conference in goals allowed (36), and opponents have only 23 assists against NYCFC this season. Inter Miami also isn't the same without either Messi or Alba, as the club struggled mightily in the U.S. Open Final. See picks at SportsLine
