Miami secured a 2-0 victory, courtesy of goals from Gomez and Messi.
New York Red Bulls have been in impressive form with four wins in their last five matches, remaining unbeaten in 90 minutes against their opponents. Their latest victory came against DC United.
Meanwhile, Inter Miami has undergone a complete transformation since Lionel Messi joined, winning eight consecutive matches across all competitions. Before Messi’s arrival, Miami went through a six-game winless streak. Their most recent triumph was against Cincinnati in the semi-finals of the U.S. Open Cup, preceded by a victory over Nashville in the Leagues Cup final.
Historically, the head-to-head record between New York Red Bulls and Inter Miami favors the Red Bulls, with five wins and only two losses in their last seven encounters. However, the home team will be missing some players due to injuries, while Inter Miami is also dealing with the absence of several key players. Particularly, Lionel Messi is showing signs of fatigue and may not start in the upcoming match, according to Coach Tata Martino.
