Al Nassr vs. Inter Miami Odds, Time, and Prediction

Al Nassr vs. Inter Miami might be a pre-season game but is still one of the most exciting soccer matchups of the week

It’s time for the first Lionel Messi vs. Cristiano Ronaldo duel since 2020. That’s when Messi played for Barcelona and Ronaldo for Juventus. CR7’s team won 3-0 with Ronaldo scoring two goals. Will it be different this time?

Judging by the betting odds, Al Nassr vs. Inter Miami is going to be a very close game. Both teams have amazing players on the roster, but it’s Al Nassr that’s been playing much better than Inter Miami. This team won each of its last four games, while Inter Miami is without a single win since September.

Lionel Messi’s Inter Miami Needs to Up the Game ASAP

Inter Miami is arguably the best team in North America, but the Herons haven’t been showing it. They are without a single win since September.

On the bright side, their roster looks great. Obviously, Lionel Messi is their best player, but they also have Sergio Busquets, Jordi Alba, and other amazing players. And since recently, Luis Suarez is playing in the attacking department of Inter Miami.

He made his debut on Monday, scoring one goal in Inter Miami’s 4-3 loss to Al Hilal. It was this team’s third pre-season game of 2024. Before losing to Al Hilal, we saw them lose to FC Dallas 1-0 and draw 0-0 with the national team of El Salvador.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al Nassr Wants to Keep the Good Run Going

Al Nassr is sitting in the No. 2 position in the 2023-24 Saudi Pro League with seven points fewer than Al Hilal. The good news for them is that we’re only at the half point of the season, meaning that Cristiano Ronaldo & Co. have plenty of time to get to the top spot.

However, for that to happen, they need to start the second half of the season in top gear. The good news is that they won each of their last five games. The bad news is that they haven’t played a single game in 2024.

Their first game is going to be the one against Inter Miami on Thursday. It’s a friendly game, but these guys will probably be fired up. Firstly, they want to up their confidence ahead of the start of the 2024 section of the Saudi Pro League season. Secondly, they’re playing on their turf, with the fans at Riyadh’s Kingdom Arena being on their side.

Finally, they also want to help Ronaldo get one over his arch nemesis, Lionel Messi. The Argentinean leads the head-to-head series 17-9-11 (W-D-L).

Inter Miami vs. Al Nassr Prediction

Our prediction for Thursday’s Al Nassr vs. Inter Miami pre-season game is that we’re going to see a lot of goals. We’ll probably see both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo find the net in this game. But whose team will score more?

Given that Inter Miami is out of shape and that the game is played in Saudi Arabia, our pick is Al Nassr.

Pick: Al Nassr & Over 2.5 Goals
