Inter Miami to Start the 2024 MLS in Top Gear

Lionel Messi joined Inter Miami last season and made an immediate impact, leading this team to winning the League Cup. However, he then missed a number of games due to fitness problems and international duties, which had a devastating impact on the Herons.

They ended up failing to make the playoffs, winning no matches from late September until the end of the season. In fact, they have won only one game since – they beat Hong Kong All-Stars 4-1 at the start of February.

This all means that they’re hungry for wins, so you can be certain that they’re going to go all-in on Wednesday. But do they have the quality needed to beat Real Salt Lake? The answer is yes.

Not only do they have soccer GOAT Messi on the roster, but their 2024 squad is the strongest it’s ever been, with Messi’s former Barcelona teammates Sergio Busquets, Jordi Alba, and Luis Suarez. On top of it all, they’re led by ex-Barca coach Tata Martino.

Can Real Salt Lake Stage an Upset?

Real Salt Lake is a mediocre team with no championship ambitions. These guys probably understand that making the postseason is their limit. However, they would love to cause a sensation at the start of the 2024 MLS season by beating the favored Herons.

Although their defense looks incapable of stopping Messi & Co., these guys might have a chance if they put everything on the offense. Real Salt Lake does have some decent attackers on the roster, most notably, Cristian Arango, a former Pachuca and LAFC striker, who was a part of LAFC’s MLS Cup-winning generation.

Inter Miami vs. Real Salt Lake Prediction

This is going to be a real spectacle. With both teams being great offensively, we just can’t see a scenario in which Inter Miami vs. Real Salt Lake wouldn’t see at least three goals. But, who’s gonna score more? It’s Inter Miami, obviously.

Pick: Inter Miami & Over 2.5 Goals
