Inter Miami host FC Cincinnati in a massive MLS regular season finale for them, at Fort Lauderdale in Florida.

A win could still take Inter Miami into the preliminary round of the playoffs, with the teams placing 7-10 in the Eastern Conference having to play a round before the playoffs proper begin.

Inter Miami would have liked to be in better form heading into such a crunch game. They have won only one of their last five matches in the MLS, and have lost both their last two matches.

Last time, Blaise Matuidi got on the scoresheet for Inter Miami, but they lost 2-1 to Toronto FC.

Inter Miami, though, might fancy their chances against FC Cincinnati, who are the only team in the MLS Eastern Conference who are mathematically ruled out of qualifying for the playoffs before the last round of games.

Cincinnati have now lost nine MLS games in a row, with the latest being a 2-0 defeat to Atlanta United.
