Pre-game preview

CITY SC had a split stretch of away games by winning against Toronto last Saturday but then taking a hard loss against LAFC 3-0 on Wednesday. Despite the loss to LAFC, CITY remains at the top of the Western Conference with 38 points.

Inter Miami is currently in 15th place in the Eastern Conference and on a 10-game winless streak while they await the start of soccer legend Lionel Messi.

One of CITY’s two designated played, Eduard Löwen, made a return on Wednesday after suffering an injury that put him out for four weeks. He’s once again listed as an available sub. CITY’s other designated player, João Klauss, has been out since April with an injury but posted an Instagram story of a workout on Wednesday.

Tonight will be the last match before MLS goes on a month-long break. During this break, the MLS All-Star game will be on July 19 in Washington D.C. CITY’s captain and co-captain, Tim Parker and Roman Bürki, were selected for the All-Star team and will be facing off against Arsenal.
