Miami end winless run, Revs beat rivals and the latest on MLS transfers

Another eventful weekend in the MLS saw Inter Miami and New England Revolution pick up important victories. We look back at all the key results and latest transfer news too.

Inter Miami end winless run

Phil Neville and David Beckham saw their team snap a seven-game winless run after beating Montreal 2-1.

The Canadians scored first and led 1-0 at the break. Gonzalo Higuain put Inter back in the game having scored from the spot early in the second half. His second effort, just 20 minutes later, put the Herons on top.

Miami took advantage of mistakes throughout the game and used the Florida heat to their advantage against the Canadian side.

Higuain capitalised on some sloppy Montreal passing and put pressure on their defense all night long, as did his brother Federico who won the penalty.

Miami will next be in action on Wednesday as they stay in state for the Florida Derby at Orlando City. Miami are priced at 10/3 while Orlando City are 4/6, and the draw is 31/10.

Revs beat rivals in close encounter

First-placed New England Revolution had to rally twice on Saturday as they won 3-2 against New York Red Bulls.

Bruce Arena's side fell behind in the eighth minute and after tying the game in the 60th minute, they immediately went back down. The Revs tied the game in the 84th minute before Adam Buksa netted the winner in stoppage time.

The win gives New England a four-point lead in the Supporters' Shield race. What's more, they lead the Eastern Conference by eight points over Orlando. Their attacking trio of Gustavo Bou, Buksa, and Carles Gil has been fantastic all season.

Bou has nine goals in 10 games, Buksa has four in the last five, and Gil leads the MLS with 14 assists.

They also managed to get the win without keeper Matt Turner who was busy winning the Gold Cup with the United States national team. 

In his place the last five games, Brad Knighton allowed just six goals while picking up four wins and two clean sheets.

The Revs are back in action on Wednesday at home against Nashville SC. The Revs are 3/4 with Planet Sport Bet while Nashville are 7/2 and the draw 13/5.

Vancouver, Austin, Orlando make moves

The Vancouver Whitecaps finally added another Designated Player over the weekend, as they reached an agreement to add Ryan Gauld. The attacking midfielder played with SC Farense in Portugal and has signed through 2024.

Gauld led Farense in goals last year and is expected to slide into the Whitecaps starting lineup in the number 10 role.

Meanwhile, Orlando City SC added and lost a goalkeeper over the weekend. Brandon Austin returned to Tottenham after ending a six-month loan.

In his place, the Lions have signed Adam Grinwis for the rest of the 2021 season with an option for another season. Grinwis played for Orlando in 2018-19 in six regular-season games plus a US Open Cup quarterfinal win over NYCFC.

Expansion side Austin FC made a move this week as well, as they brought in attacker McKinze Gaines. The 23-year-old played with Hanover 96 in Germany after stints with the Wolfsburg U-19 team, Darmstadt 98 and SG Sonnenhof Grobapach.

Gaines is an Austin native who played for the US youth national teams, and he has signed through 2022 with two options.
