1. Clean up on mistakes

Saturday’s game will be intense.

It’s a rivalry game, and naturally, the emotions will be elevated. It’s imperative that if either team wants a result, cleaning up on mistakes and keeping your head in check will be the difference between three points or zero.

In Inter Miami’s case, they have a lot to gain from this game. With an 0-5 start and a failure to live up to the high expectations surrounding the club, the game on Saturday could be a restart button for the club.

Getting three points against Orlando will not only see the team get their first win in club history, but it will also give the team an enormous amount of confidence going into the rest of the season.

For Orlando City, this game will be the chance to build on the incredible start they had at the “MLS is Back” tournament.

Manager Oscar Pareja has taken this club from league laughing stock to legitimate playoff contenders. A win of Saturday will show that the Lions aren’t a team to be overlooked. With Nani at the helm and a crop of solid players like Junior Urso, Joao Moutinho, and Mauricio Pereira, anything is possible for Orlando if they continue to play the way they do.
