On Sunday, Inter Miami will welcome CF Montreal to DRV PNK Stadium in Fort Lauderdale to mark the end of the MLS regular season.
Even though both teams are guaranteed at least one playoffs match, they both have a lot to play for as Miami would have a home playoff match if the Herons won and the Red Bulls lost, while Montreal can win the Eastern Conference with a win and a draw or loss against Philadelphia Union.

Inter Miami vs CF Montreal Tips and Prediction
Inter Miami’s home team left no doubt on Wednesday in a game with a lot on the line. They quickly took the lead against Orlando City and never looked back, winning convincingly 4-1 to secure their second-ever postseason berth.
In their last 13 games, they’ve earned 32 points at home, a feat that only Los Angeles FC has surpassed in that period.
Miami’s two first-half goals against the Lions were more than they had scored in the first period of their previous five games put together, and it was also their greatest victory of the season.
The Herons have a perfect home record against Canadian opponents, having won their last four domestic games at DRV PNK Stadium.
No of how the regular season concludes, Phil Neville’s team will have finished higher than any other MLS team since they finished 10th in their initial season and 11th at the end of 2021.
The Herons have only trailed once since falling to the Chicago Fire 3-1 in their first game in September, and a victory or draw this weekend would extend their unbeaten streak to a new club record. CF Montreal should be near the top of the list when discussing some of the best improved teams from 2021 to current season.
Last Saturday, in front of their fifth sold-out crowd of the year, they earned their 19th victory of the year, which is a record for them in an MLS season.
Montreal has 62 points going into Decision Day, 16 more than they did in 2021 when they missed the playoffs by two points.
Wilfried Nancy has seen his team make significant progress in that area recently, posting back-to-back clean sheets. This campaign has seen them frequently look vulnerable on the back end, conceding more goals (49) than they had allowed in any of their three previous campaigns.
The last time Montreal triumphed in a regular-season match in Florida was in September 2021, when they defeated Orlando City 4-2 at Exploria Stadium.
This team has been on fire away from home, winning six straight road games after suffering a lopsided 4-0 loss at the Los Angeles Galaxy. They have more road victories in 2022 than any other MLS club.
Both of these teams have improved significantly from a season ago, but Montreal has the advantage because they have been able to win games through strong teamwork, whilst Miami has relied largely on their Designated Players, Higuain, and Campana.
