Venue: DRV PNK Stadium.
Inter Miami CF and Chicago Fire FC are set to kick off their MLS campaign for 2022 at the DRV PNK Stadium this Saturday.
Inter Miami CF, founded in 2018, competed in their first ever season in the MLS in 2020. With forty one points through twelve wins and five draws, they managed to finish the season in 11th position in 2021.
The club having qualified for the playoffs in their first season in 2020 through a 10th place finish were not able to repeat the feat as they achieved a 20th place finish in the overall rankings.
Their season was largely hindered by two separate six match losing streaks they had to go through, in the course of the season.
Chicago Fire FC meanwhile finished just below their opponents for the weekend in the Eastern Conference, for the second consecutive time.
Managing thirty four points through nine wins and seven draws, they finished the season ranked twelfth in the conference, which 22nd position in the overall standings.

Inter Miami CF vs Chicago Fire FC Prediction
The hosts have won seven of their last ten home matches, while their opponents have lost seven of their previous ten away fixtures. Hence the hosts should win this fixture with relative ease.
Gonzalo Higuaín needed time to adjust to Major League Soccer as he scored just once in nine matches in his first season. However last season the Argentine striker made nineteen goal contributions in the league and reached double figures in goals for the first time since the 2017/18 season at Juventus.
Having finished as the team’s highest goal scorer he scored thrice in his last four home matches and is my pick to score anytime this Saturday.
