Columbus Crew fell to an away defeat at the hands of Inter Miami at Inter Miami CF Stadium on Wednesday. Inter and Columbus currently occupy 8th and 7th spots in the league, with 39 points and 41 points respectively after 43 matches.

Inter started the match strongly, when Higuaín found the net on the 25 minute mark. However, their lead was short-lived, as Cucho equalised for The Crew just before half-time. The first half ended 1-1.

The Herons rallied after this and were rewarded, when Higuaín found the net once more, at 82 minutes, to hand a welcome victory to the hosts.

Substitutions for Inter included Vassilev, Campana, Bryce Duke, Jones and Ulloa for Lassiter, Taylor, Mota, Higuaín and Pozuelo, respectively. Columbus brought on Williams, Pedro Santos and Yeboah for Mensah, Molino and Sands.
