The formation of Florida could indeed make a very important jump in the standings by collecting the three points.
Indeed, if everything falls into place, the men in pink could move from 12e at the 9e square.
They currently have 18 points, one less than Atlanta and Chicago, and two less than the Impact.
The ideal scenario for Miami would be to win against the Impact and see Chicago lose to Kansas City, and hope for the same fate for Atlanta against Toronto.
In a virtual press briefing on Friday at noon, head coach Diego Alonso recalled that his team were in a good streak with their three games unbeaten.
“We are optimistic about continuing our momentum, we are on the rise. “
We feel very well that this team does not want its first season to end with an elimination from the fall tournament. It’s evident in the mind of young Lewis Morgan.
“A victory would allow us to return to the heart of the playoff portrait. “
In its last three games, Miami have beaten the New York Red Bulls and the Houston Dynamo, and they have drawn a heartbreaking draw against Atlanta in a game they shouldn’t have missed.
The Achilles heel of this team is on the attack side, which has failed to live up to expectations with just 18 goals in as many games.
But Lewis Morgan believes the tide is changing.
“What we can take away from the last few games is that we create a lot more chances. “
Diego Alonso wants to see his players have more bite, especially in their offensive pressure.
“During our last game, we saw in the second half that we were more accurate in our way of attacking. “
“We have to be more combative in attacking the opposing last line of defense. “
