On Saturday night, Inter Miami will go to New England Revolution for their first match in Major League Soccer since announcing the acquisition of Lionel Messi.
New England is currently fourth but has one of the worst runs of form in the division at a time when the visitors are last in the Eastern Conference.
Prior to Inter Miami's forthcoming MLS match, Phil Neville's resignation as head coach was expected to be the main talking point. However, Messi's admission that he is travelling to Florida has changed that.
Although fans won't witness the Argentine great wearing their jersey until at least next month, the news of his transfer arrived just as Miami needed a lift.
Neville began this season with five victories from his first 11 league games, but a run of losses that has already reached five games proved too much for him to continue as the team's manager.
Inter Miami is only six points away from ninth place and a spot in the Final Series Playoffs, but interim manager Javier Morales is charged with lifting the team up the Eastern Conference standings.
Inter Miami returned to winning ways on Wednesday with a 1-0 victory against Birmingham Legion in the US Open Cup after dropping three straight MLS games by a single goal.
Despite not winning any of their last five league games, New England Revolution still occupies a solid fourth place.
The distance between them and the league's undisputed leaders FC Cincinnati is now 12 points, but Bruce Arena will be more concerned with trying to solidify their hold on a playoff berth.
Pressure is mounting before hosting the Eastern Conference underdogs since New England is only four points ahead of eighth-placed Orlando City, who has a game in hand.
