What you need to know about Birmingham
The Legion may be struggling in league play right now, but they have been rolling in the U.S. Open Cup 2023. The Alabama-based club shut out Memphis 901 FC 3-0 in the Round of 32 before edging Charlotte 1-0 in the Round of 16. In that game, forward Prosper Kasim scored the deciding goal in the 60th minute of play.
Birmingham has also been strong at keeping the opposition off the scoresheet. They have recorded four clean sheets across all competition dating back to February and have only been held scoreless twice. Stream the match here.
What you need to know about Miami
At first glance, one might think Inter Miami have the advantage of being in the top-tier league. However, the club is sitting at the bottom of the MLS's Eastern Conference with just five wins over 16 matches played this season. Their last win of any kind was on May 23, when they narrowly defeated Nashville SC 2-1 in the U.S. Open Cup Round of 16.
Miami has also been clean-sheeted in two of their last three games, falling 1-0 to both Montreal and the New York Red Bulls. They haven't won a match on the road since a 2-1 victory on April 29 against Columbus. Stream the match here.
