Seattle Sounders are back in MLS action on Saturday as they host Inter Miami in a non-conference fixture.

The Sounders held New York City FC to a 1-1 draw in the second leg semi-final fixture of the CONCACAF Champions League on Thursday, defeating them 4-2 on aggregate. They secured a place in the final of the continental competition for the first time in history.

Despite a solid outing in the Champions League, their domestic season is yet to kick into gear and they are 11th in the Western Conference standings with just two wins to their name. They recorded a 2-1 win against Minnesota United in their previous league outing.

Inter Miami secured their first win of the 2022 campaign as they secured a 3-2 win over last season's Supporters' Shield winners New England Revolution at home. Leonardo Campana scored the first hat-trick in the club's MLS history to help his side to the three points.

Seattle Sounders vs Inter Miami Prediction

This will be the fourth game of the month for the Seattle Sounders, so fatigue will be a factor for them here. They are unbeaten in their last three league outings, picking up two wins and playing out a draw in that period.

Their undefeated streak extends to seven games if we consider the Champions League encounters, so they certainly have good form on their side in this game.
