Cruz Azul vs Inter Miami - Team news

Cruz Azul make it to this edition of the Leagues Cup as one of the former winners, having taken the title home in 2019. La Máquina will try to find a bit of glory in this competition after a lackluster start of the season, which has seen them without a win in their first three Liga MX games. This has caused a bit of pressure against coach Ricardo Ferretti, who will need to steer his team past the group stage to avoid any doubts regarding his future. Los Cementeros will have to rely on Uriel Antuna and Carlos Rodríguez as their best offensive weapons, while defender Carlos Salcedo should emerge as the leader in the team's back line if they want to have a fighting chance to beat their opponent.

On the other side of the pitch, Inter Miami are the most hyped team in MLS right now, and it has to do with Lionel Messi's arrival. The Argentine will be the main attraction of this game, although it remains unclear if he will start the game or if coach Tata Martino will give him some minutes off the bench. Messi will be joined by Sergio Busquets in this North American adventure, with the midfielder also listed as doubtful to start. Either way, these arrivals will certainly boost the Herons' chances of succes in this Cup and in the domestic tournament, where they are ranked 15th in the Eastern Conference after losing 14 of their 22 matches so far.

Unfortunately, both teams will have to make do without some of their players. Here is the list of unavailable footballers for this Leagues Cup tie.

Cruz Azul: Willer Ditta (unavailable for legal issues).

Inter Miami: Corentin Jean, Gregore, Jean Mota (injured).
