Inter Miami II, however, finds itself in a tough spot, ranked tenth in the Eastern Conference and fourth in the Southeast Division, with a record of 3-3-1D and 10 points. The team has struggled defensively, conceding the most goals in the league, tied with several other clubs. Players Leonardo Frugis Afonso and Bryan Destin have been key offensive contributors, but the team’s porous defense has cost them important points.

In their last match, Inter Miami II lost to New York Red Bulls II, highlighting their defensive issues. Chattanooga, on the other hand, comes off a 1-1 draw against Orlando City B II, demonstrating resilience in tight games. Chattanooga FC’s coach, Rod Underwood, emphasizes the need to improve overall play, acknowledging that the previous high-scoring game wasn’t reflective of the general play.
