Philadelphia Union vs Inter Miami CF
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Wednesday, 15 July 2020
Kick-off at 3:30 UK/ 4:30 CET
Venue: ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex (Bay Lake, Florida).
The newly joined squad in the Major League Soccer will have to place their baby steps in the tournament fixture. Philadelphia Union is a powerful side in the league and will make it harder for the Herons to mark their first win in MLS.
After a slow first half with no goals at all, Bedoya scored the winning goals for Philadelphia Union in their opening match in the tournament with New York City FC last time out.
The U had only 41% ball possession in the game and only 4 shots on goal. Their attacks were weak against the league runners-up last season regarding their 3 corner kicks in ninety minutes.
Inter Miami caught its opening match with Orlando City, which is a slightly inferior team in the overall mix. They lost 1-2 after starting the scoring with Agudelo J soon after the game’s restart.
The Herons had 42% ball possession, but their goal was the only shot that hit the target. With just two corner kicks, one cannot argue of their attacking speed.
Considering the Herons to be a newly promoted team against a top team in the campaign, the odds are against the newly joined side in the encounter.

The teams have not met before in any major competition.
Philadelphia Union vs Inter Miami CF Prediction
Philadelphia Union is closer to taking the bragging rights from the match based on their league experience and their overall performances in the past seasons. Inter Miami is a newly formed team this season, and their inexperience will hold them back in the match.
The teams haven’t before in any major competitions but their club-friendly saw the U enjoying the win with a 2-1 scoreline at home. Besides, the Herons lost their opening match, and the opponent is on the back of a win giving the latter a slight edge in the game.
The double chance favoring Philadelphia Union with 1.40 odds will probably be the best bet. Despite the results, Inter Miami scored in their previous clash and hence, the tip for a BTTS with 1.57 odds and over 2.5 goals at 1.66 odds will both come in handy for the punters.
