Expansion Inter Miami CF look to set an unbeaten franchise record on Saturday when they visit the Montreal Impact in Harrison, NJ

With a 2-0-1 record in their last three games, Inter Miami (5-10-3, 18 points) can record their first streak of four games unbeaten with another positive result on Saturday

Inter Miami just won a 1-1 draw against Atlanta United on Wednesday that left midfielder Wil Trapp ‘disappointed’, as his side edged their opponents by a 21-3 margin

« Every game that we approach like a final, » said Trapp « We have to eliminate all the points we can, at home or away This is why I think we are so disappointed with this game (Atlanta), because we feel like we have lost two points « 

Inter Miami’s good form got them into the playoff race with five games to go in the MLS schedule Miami can cross the Eastern Conference playoff line with a win on Saturday and also ahead of the Impact (6-10-2, 20 points) in the standings

« We weren’t ready to compete or fight There are no excuses, » said midfielder Shamit Shome « We prepared well We were optimistic for this game… We went out flat I don’t know what it was It’s not enough to start a game like this « 

A formation thinned by injuries, international absences and other circumstances led to the collapse of the Impact Montreal parted ways with Saphir Taïder in a transfer agreement on Wednesday, and starting goaltender Clément Diop has left the team on Wednesday to face a family situation

Luis Binks (warning) will also be unavailable for Montreal on Saturday Defenseman Rod Fanni is questionable after suffering a hamstring injury against New England
