DC United have been eliminated from contention for a playoff berth and will be looking to sign off for the season on a winning note. They saw their three-game unbeaten streak come to an end in their previous outing as they fell to a 3-0 defeat to Sporting Kansas City.
Inter Miami are still in the race to book a place in the playoffs and returned to winning ways after three consecutive defeats last time around. Gonzalo Higuaín's brace helped them to a 2-1 win over Columbus Crew on Tuesday.
They have four games left to play and if they can avoid dropping points in those games, they will be able to comfortably ensure a spot in the playoffs.
