Even so, we must now wait to see whether that trend might be maintained in this next game.

Team News: Inter Miami
With a fully healthy squad available to select from, Inter Miami boss Diego Alonso has no fitness concerns to speak of ahead of this clash.
In our opinion, Inter Miami might have a difficult job to breach the defence of this Orlando City outfit who we reckon should just have the edge.
With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a good battle with a 1-0 advantage for Orlando City at the end of the match.
Expecting it to be tight.
