Inter Miami predicted lineup vs NYCFC – MLS

Inter Miami boss Gerardo ‘Tata’ Martino will have little choice but to pick a similar lineup to the one that fell against New York Red Bulls last weekend when his team battle NYCFC.

The former Mexico national team head coach chose a more defensive formation against Red Bulls, going with the 3-5-2 shape in the rain last weekend. With limited options up front, don’t be surprised to see Martino go with the same look this Saturday as Miami hope to get back on track.

Here’s how the Herons could line up on Saturday evening at Chase Stadium.

GK: Drake Callender – The veteran shot-stopper returns to the mix after serving as a backup on international duty with the USMNT.

CB: Tomas Aviles – He’ll look to put in a much better performance this weekend after a poor showing against Red Bulls.

CB: Serhiy Kryvtsov – Kryvtsov will have his work cut out with the talented NYCFC forwards he’s set to come up against.

CB: Noah Allen – He looked out of sorts at center-back last week but Miami have no other choice but to play the youngster in the back three.

RM: Robert Taylor – The 29-year-old is set to feature as a wing-back for the second straight game.

CM: Julian Gressel – A central midfield role is on the horizon once more for the former Columbus Crew figure.

CM: Sergio Busquets – Continuing to age like a fine wine, the Barcelona legend anchors the middle of the park.

CM: Diego Gomez – The Paraguay international makes a much-needed return to the XI to aid Busquets and Gressel.

LM: Jordi Alba – The 34-year-old looks set to wreak havoc down the left-hand side in his favored position.

ST: Luis Suarez – It was a dull showing last time out for the veteran striker and he’ll look to get back to goalscoring form against the Boys in Blue.

ST: Leo Campana – He’ll look to add to his three goal involvements with another start up top next to Suarez.
