LAFC vs Inter Miami: times, how to watch on TV, stream online | MLS
The MLS Cup holders face Lionel Messi’s Miami at DRV PNK Stadium in one of the most hotly-anticipated fixtures of the season so far.
LAFC host Inter Miami on Sunday evening in the stand-out fixture of this MLS match week.
On paper the gap between the two teams looks vast. LAFC are second in the Western Conference, while Inter Miami are still ten points adrift of the playoff places in the East. But Miami have looked reborn since the arrival of Lionel Messi, Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba and are unbeaten in the 11 games since Messi landed in Miami.
It’s also a battle of two of the league’s most influential captains. Carlos Vela led LAFC to their 2022 MLS Cup triumph, while Messi wears the armband for his new team. Sunday’s game should be a fascinating clash and one which will be key as Miami stage a late push for the playoffs.

LAFC vs Inter Miami: prediction
With their vociferous home support behind them LAFC will be desperate to become the first team to defeat Miami since the arrival of Messi. The visitors looked a little off the pace in their most recent outing - a goalless draw with Nashville - and questions are being raised about Messi’s ability to play so many games in such a short space of time.
Nevertheless, this new-look Miami are a genuinely dangerous proposition and should be able to come away from BMO Stadium with a point.
Prediction: LAFC 1-1 Inter Miami
