Inter Miami is out of the MLS playoffs race, but Charlotte FC isn’t. That’s what makes this match interesting. Both teams offer very good MLS odds to win straight up, and Miami has nothing to lose. Playing without any kind of pressure can make a huge difference.
Inter Miami Lost Last Two Games
Before an almost two-week break, Inter Miami lost 1-0 to FC Cincinnati. Prior to that, the Herons were crushed by the Chicago Fire 4-1. With or without Lionel Messi, they hadn’t lost two games in a row since June.
Head coach Gerardo Martino has never lost three consecutive matches in all competitions with an MLS club.
Don’t expect Messi to play. After playing for Argentina in the World Cup qualifiers, there’s no need to expose himself to injury. Even so, I expect Miami to score. When playing at home, they only failed to score three times in the last 27 matches.
That’s me saying you should head over to our MLS prop bets page and wager on “both teams to score in the match – yes.”
Swiderski Leads Charlotte FC
Karol Swiderski is on fire! The Polish striker scored in Charlotte FC’s most recent match, beating the Chicago Fire 2-0. Swiderski scored from the penalty spot in the second half.
He’s the main reason to consider including the visitors in your betting online ticket. Swiderski scored in the last four games he played in. That includes Poland’s goal against Moldova on Sunday. The 2024 EURO qualifiers match finished 1-1.
You can expect the striker to be tired but extremely motivated. To wrap things up, he’s one of 12 players with 20 goals and 10 assists over the last two seasons combined.

Charlotte FC will also try to rewrite history since they’ve never won consecutive away games in all competitions. It’s now or never.
No Draws Between These Two
Inter Miami FC and Charlotte FC have collided three times. Charlotte FC won the first meeting 1-0, but Inter Miami won the last two with a 7-2 aggregate. Keep in mind that those two victories from the Herons were at Fort Lauderdale.

Inter Miami vs Charlotte Soccer Betting Predictions
Messimania was fun, but it’s over. At least for this season. Charlotte is the better team and has more reasons to fight for the victory. Plus, Swiderski is eager to keep scoring to attract the attention of European clubs. It’s not going to be easy, though. Martino is a great coach and will figure out a way to put up a good fight.
