Inter Miami vs Charlotte betting tips: Leagues Cup quarter-final preview, predictions and odds


Inter Miami vs Charlotte match preview

Inter Miami are now just three games away from glory, so will they advance through to the Leagues Cup semi-finals?

This has very much become Lionel Messi’s tournament, first scoring a 94th minute free-kick on debut to snatch the win against Cruz Azul, before netting twice in a 4-0 demolition of Atlanta United in the group phase.

Then, in the round of 32, Miami swatted aside Sunshine State rivals Orlando City 3-1, with Messi once again scoring twice, before Josef Martínez converted a penalty in Fort Lauderdale.

For Sunday’s last 16 tie against FC Dallas, Tata Martino’s team were on the road for the first time, and it looked like their adventure was about to come to an end.

Miami were 4-2 down in Frisco with just ten minutes to play, only for an own goal and then a trademark Messi free-kick, his second of the night, to force a penalty shootout.

Messi, Sergio Busquets, Leonardo Campana, Kamal Miller and Benjamín Cremaschi all held their nerve from 12 yards, as Inter Miami snuck through in Texas.

In their way is Charlotte FC, after they came from a goal down to defeat Houston Dynamo at Shell Energy Stadium on Monday night.

So, can Queen City pull off a massive shock at DRV PNK Stadium, or will Messi fire Miami through to a semi-final date with either LAFC or Monterrey on Tuesday?
