All eyes will be on Chase Stadium this Saturday night when Inter Miami host New York Red Bulls in an MLS clash between two in-form sides.

The Herons have overcome their Concacaf Champions Cup disappointment to beat Sporting Kansas City, Nashville SC and New England Revolution in their last three MLS outings, propelling them to the top of the Eastern Conference standings.

Good form has also followed New York Red Bulls this season, who sit third in the Eastern Conference and just four points behind Miami having played a game less.

Sandro Schwarz's team are on a three-game winless streak though, following draws against Chicago Fire, LAFC and Vancouver Whitecaps.

Here's everything you need to know about the game.

Inter Miami team news

Jordi Alba has a hamstring injury and that means his starting spot at left-back should go to Franco Negri.

Serhiy Kryvstov is also ruled out with the same problem, while Miami fans will have to wait a little longer for Federico Redondo to return from a knee injury.

The good news is that Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez are fit and ready to go - a frightening prospect for any defense around the world.

Inter Miami predicted lineup: Callender; Weigandt, Aviles, Freire, Negri; Gressel, Busquets, Ruiz; Messi, Suarez, Taylor.

New York Red Bulls team news

Noah Elle is suspended for Red Bulls after he was sent off last time out against the Vancouver Whitecaps.

Injuries rule Peter Stroud and Serge Ngoma out of contention too, but NYRB have their own star player to look to for inspiration - former Bundesliga star Emil Forsberg, who joined the club in December on a two-year contract with an option for a further 12 months.

New York Red Bulls predicted lineup: Coronel; Dylan Nealis, Sean Nealis, Reyes, Tolkin; Carmona, Edelman, Amaya, Forsberg; Morgan, Vanzeir.

Inter Miami vs New York Red Bulls prediction

One thing's for sure, goals can be expected at Chase Stadium.

Inter Miami have scored plenty of them with Messi in the team, and there's been no slowing down former Barcelona teammate Suarez in front of net. The Herons have seen 42 goals fly in over the course of the 11 MLS games they've played - conceding has also been a frequent occurance too.

It might not be so easy against a NYRB side who have kept things a little tighter, but the opportunity to hit Miami on the counter could see the game open up pretty quickly. The home team have the quality to win but may come unstuck against a side very difficult to beat.

Prediction: Inter Miami 2-2 New York Red Bulls
