Philadelphia Union invite Inter Miami to Subaru Park for their MLS Eastern Conference fixture on Saturday.

The hosts played out a 0-0 draw against reigning champions Columbus Crew in their opening fixture of the campaign.

Miami lost 3-2 to the LA Galaxy in a highly entertaining game in which the visitors came back from behind thanks to Javier Hernández's brace.

Union will face Atlanta United in the CONCACAF Champions League quarter-final fixture after this league game.

Philadelphia Union vs Inter Miami Team News

Philadelphia Union

The hosts remain without the services of Cory Burke, who is said to be recovering from a knock. Jack de Vries has also been ruled out with a concussion.

Jim Curtin is expected to field the same starting XI that held Columbus Crew to a goalless draw in the season's opening fixture.

Ilsinho has resumed training but it is expected that Curtin will not involve him in matches just yet. At most, he might make an appearance from the bench.

Injured: Cory Burke, Jack de Vries

Doubtful: Ilsinho

Suspended: None

Phil Neville is expected to have a full-strength squad available for this trip to City of Brotherly Love.

Miami have some very big names in their ranks but have struggled to produce desirable results.

Philadelphia Union were in good form in the CONCACAF Champions League fixtures but failed to replicate it against Columbus Crew. Inter Miami's defensive struggles continued in their opening fixture.
