Both teams will face each other for the first time

While Vancouver Whitecaps started brilliantly, they have recently struggled to win matches. They will face a tough competition against Inter Miami. They hold 19 points in the Western Conference and have not won a game in their last four matches. They also failed to win the Canadian Championship after losing to Cavalry FC.

For his side to remain in the top half of the table, Vanni Sartini will need to win games again. A stoppage-time goal by Gauld earned Vancouver a hard-fought draw in the last match. 

With Inter Miami at the top of the Eastern Conference, they are having an exceptional season. Despite remaining unbeaten in the league for the last seven matches, the team have put up impressive performances. Martino seems to have a genuine chance to dominate the league this year.

They have hit the ground running with the new signings and that has made his life easier. In the last match against DC United, the Herons maintained their place in the league by winning a hard-fought victory.

Player to Watch

Ryan Gauld (Vancouver Whitecaps) 

He has been an integral part of Vancouver since signing for the club in 2021. In his best season for the club last season, he scored 12 goals while also contributing 17 assists in the league. Gauld has been one of the most effective players in the division in the last two seasons.

In this season, he has scored four goals and provided assists. He has looked like a genuine threat when the team is on top of its game. As the main architect of the team, he is the one who creates and scores the team’s goals with his vision to take defenders out of play. 

Lionel Messi (Inter Miami) 

Despite joining the club last year, Lionel Messi seems to have adjusted brilliantly to his new surroundings perfectly now, scoring 10 goals in 10 appearances and laying on nine assists. As a result of his goals and his eye for creating goals with his vision and quick thinking, he has helped the Herons maintain a lead at the top of the table.

The table seems to be at the top of this season for both Messi and Inter Miami. Lionel Messi has the best goal contribution this season as he is enjoying his partnership with his former teammates at the moment.
