Inter Miami shut out in postseason debut, ending inaugural season
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Randall Leal and Hany Mukhtar scored 10 minutes apart in the first half and Nashville beat Inter Miami 3-0 on Friday night in an all-expansion play-in round game. Nashville advanced to face Toronto FC, last year’s runner-up, on Tuesday night in East Hartford, Connecticut. The defeat ends Inter Miami’s first season, one in which they finished shorthanded because of reported COVID-19 infections. Leandro González Pirez, Gonzalo Higuaín, Federico Higuaín and Andrés Reyes were among the players not suiting up Friday. We suffered that blow and were only able to get settled and play an even match for the last 15 minutes of the first half,” Inter Miami manager Diego Alonso said.
