Thursday Major League Soccer action from Inter Miami CF Stadium, as Inter take on Chicago.
Inter currently sitting in fourteenth place, are five places lower than ninth placed Chicago, heading into the clash.
Inter Miami go into this game with 13 points secured
Inter need a positive result from this game, if they are to move their season forward. Their last match resulted in a loss to New York, before that they drew away to Orlando City, 1-1.
Inter have now lost eight of their last 12 fixtures, a worrying statistic that has to be addressed by Manager Phil Neville. With 13 points, they are established in fourteenth in the League having won three games, drawn four fixtures, and lost nine matches.
Inter have won one game, drawn two fixtures, and lost five matches of their eight League matches at home this season.
A victory for Inter Miami would put them on 16 points.
Chicago Fire arrive at this match, having secured 20 points so far this season
Another victory would be a terrific achievement, but that is what Raphael Wicky will be asking from his team, as they go into this game on the back of strong results after beating Columbus Crew 1-0 and New York Red Bulls 2-1
Raphael Wicky knows that a run of nine losses in 18 games for his Chicago side, is going to be a tough run of form to change. However that is exactly what he must try to deliver. Their position is ninth in the League, and they have 20 points having won five games, drawn five meetings, and lost nine matches.
Chicago now travel, knowing that their current away form is woeful. So far this season they have drawn one game and lost five fixtures matches on the road.
Chicago Fire will have 23 points so far this season, should they secure a win.
