Inter Miami will be without Lionel Messi and Jordi Alba in the starting XI when they host the Houston Dynamo in the 2023 U.S. Open Cup final on Wednesday on Paramount+. The two Inter superstars were subbed off in the first half of the Herons' 4-0 win against Toronto FC on September 20 due to muscle fatigue and neither player will start or play.

U.S. Open Cup Final picks for Houston Dynamo vs. Inter Miami
Before you tune in to Wednesday's match, you need to see the U.S. Open Cup Final picks from SportsLine soccer expert Brandt Sutton. Sutton, a former collegiate soccer player, has been SportsLine's top soccer editor for more than five years. He has followed soccer closely for much longer and factors in managerial tactics, projected lineups and past performances to make the most-informed decisions possible, keeping his finger on the pulse of the game all over the globe. Sutton finished 2022 as SportsLine's top soccer expert with a 165-130-2 mark, returning nearly $2,200 for $100 players. He also excelled in Serie A with a 63-39-1 mark, returning nearly $1,600.
For Inter Miami vs. Houston Dynamo, Sutton is picking Inter Miami to win for a -135 payout. The expert believes that Inter are still the superior team even if Messi and Alba don't start because of how much they have evolved over the last couple of months. The Leagues Cup winners will be led by dynamic midfielder Sergio Busquets, who should be well-rested for Wednesday's match after sitting out Inter's last outing on Orlando City on September 24.
Although Houston is unbeaten in four of their last five matches across all competition, this MLS squad has only won one of their last nine road games in regular time.
"Even if Messi and Alba miss out, I think Inter Miami has the quality to secure the victory in front of their home fans," Sutton told SportsLine. Stream the game here.
