With this being the opener, it’s going to bring a lot of tension,” Pareja said of the matchup. “We’re expecting a lot of energy. Our energy will be there for sure and I bet theirs will be too. We’re ready, the boys have done a great job on the preparation and we’re anxious just to start the tournament.”

While fitness will be a question for the teams, Inter Miami striker Juan Agudelo expects a speedy pace.

“We’ve been trying to develop the style that we want to play,” he said, calling Inter “a team that likes to play the ball and play some attractive football while at the same time being aggressive and dangerous. … So I expect a pretty speedy pace to the game.
