Key Transactions and Player News

The last time City met Miami, the signing of Blaise Matuidi was the big news. This time, the signing of Gonzalo Higuain, as well as his brother Federico, have stolen the headlines. Unfortunately for Miami, Gonzalo will be unavailable for Saturday's meeting because Referee Tim Ford showed Higuain a red card for "offensive, insulting and abusive language," following a postgame confrontation in their weekend match against Montreal.

Inter Miami's other transaction news includes the trade of Roman Torres to Seattle. Torres was acquired on a free transfer back in December after his contract ended with Seattle.

Injury Report: George Acosta (left knee injury), David Norman Jr. (left ankle injury), Denso Ulysse (left lower leg injury), Andres Reyes (not medically cleared), GK - Luis Robles (left arm fracture) are listed as out.
