Inter Miami hit the road to take on Nashville SC in the latest round of Major League Soccer action.

The Lionel Messi-less Herons have fared well thus far without their superstar forward, winning both games in which their No. 10 has been on international duty with Argentina at Copa America 2024. Gerardo ‘Tata’ Martino’s side managed a 2-1 comeback victory over Philadelphia Union before holding on for a 2-1 win at home against reigning MLS Cup champions Columbus Crew.

The hosts haven’t been to shabby in their recent outings, winning twice and drawing once. The Eastern Conference team settled for a 0-0 draw on the road against New York Red Bulls before pulling off a 2-1 victory over Toronto FC and a 1-0 win over the in-form NYCFC.

Here’s 90min‘s guide to the rematch of the 2023 Leagues Cup final.
