Inter Miami will take on Toronto in their next Major League Soccer (MLS) fixture at the DRV PNK Stadium on Wednesday. Lionel Messi and co. will need to treat every game as a must-win clash to stand a chance of finishing ninth and qualifying for the playoffs.
Inter Miami's chances took a hit after they lost to Atlanta United 5-2 in their most recent league outing. They will be looking to bounce back from what was their first defeat after 12 unbeaten games and interestingly, their first defeat since Messi joined in the summer and the first game without the Argentina international who was away on international duty.
Toronto's form has been deplorable, as they have only managed to win once in 15 matches. That victory was against Philadelphia Union but they have since lost the game against Vancouver Whitecaps as well.

Unfortunately, Ian Fray, Franco Negri, and Corentin Jean are all anticipated to be sidelined for the remainder of the season due to ACL problems.
