Montreal Impact have lost their last two games, and only have one win in their last eight games - a truly abysmal run of form. That has put them right on the brink of missing the playoffs this season, with the race heating up in the Eastern Conference.
With the additions of Blaise Matuidi and Gonzalo Higuain to their side, Inter Miami CF look a much better unit, and have been getting a few decent results on the board. They have not lost their last three games, picking up seven points in that period.
In their last game, they scored in the 80th minute to lead against Atlanta United, only to be pegged back three minutes later. It was a loss of points that Inter Miami could have done without.
