Messi, Inter Miami Out for Revenge vs Red Bulls

There are several reasons for Inter Miami vs New York Red Bulls to be the MLS Game of the Week. First, the Eastern Conference top spot will be on the line. Second, three of the league’s top five scorers will be on the pitch. Finally, both sides are on a non-losing streak of at least five games. Lionel Messi and Co. are favored in the soccer odds at -124 but, curiously enough, Inter Miami has struggled a bit more when playing at home.

Inter Miami vs New York Red Bulls Odds and Spreads

 

Red Bulls Humiliated Inter Miami in March

That’s right, we’re talking about a rematch. In late March, the New York Red Bulls played host to a Messi-less Inter Miami and showed no mercy. The Red Bulls won 4-0 thanks to an inspired Lewis Morgan, who ended up scoring a hat trick.

While the first half finished 1-0, the second was like a walk in the park for the Red Bulls, who scored three goals in 20 minutes. The Herons will also try to avenge the 1-0 defeat they suffered the last time the Red Bulls visited them.

The thing is that the Red Bulls won’t be easy prey. They’re 2-3-1 when playing on the road, and captain Emil Forsberg has a message for Messi and Inter Miami.

“What I like about this team is that we’re never satisfied, we’re never happy, we take that anger with us, take it to Miami and we hopefully get a win. We’re excited to go to Miami and face a top opponent,” Forsberg said after a training session.

The Red Bulls’ last road match was against Los Angeles FC and finished 2-2. Keep in mind that, regardless of the result, they managed to score in four of their previous six games on the road.

1-2 Punch with Messi, Suarez

Time to talk about Inter Miami. The Herons are 3-2-1 at home. Most recently, they had no trouble fulfilling their role as betting online favorites against Nashville SC. Messi led the way to a 3-1 victory with a brace.

The Herons followed that home victory with a masterclass in New England, where they beat the Revolution 4-1. Once again, Messi led the way with a brace while Luis Suarez closed the deal with his seventh goal of the season.

Having two of the league’s top five scorers is one of the main reasons for Inter Miami to come in as the favorites at -124. While Suarez has scored seven goals, Messi has scored nine. The duo is also among the leaders in assists with four each.

As if that weren’t enough, the Herons added Matias Rojas. Prior to signing with Miami, the Paraguayan played for powerhouses like Cerro Porteno, Racing Club and Corinthians. Summing up, we’re truly talking about a team full of stars because we can’t forget about Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba.

I do believe Inter Miami will get revenge, but the Red Bulls will put up a good fight, enough to contribute for the total to go over.

Individually, make sure to include Messi in your soccer picks as anytime goalscorer. He’s the most thirsty for revenge after missing the first meeting of the season between the two sides.
