After their first pre-season win in Hong Kong on Sunday, Inter Miami completed their Asian tour with a friendly in Tokyo against Japanese champions Vissel Kobe.

Miami, without injured stars Lionel Messi and Luis Suárez, beat Hong Kong XI 4-1 – fans in the stadium expressing particular displeasure at the absence of the eight-time Ballon d’Or winner.

Prior to last weekend’s comfortable victory, the Herons had failed to live up to the sky-high expectations sparked by Suárez’s January signing of a side that already featured former Barcelona favorites Messi, Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba.

After opening their pre-season schedule with a goalless draw against El Salvador, Miami suffered back-to-back losses to Dallas, Al Hilal and Al Nassr – with the third of those defeats coming 6-0 in Riyadh.

The home team will have all their players available for this match.

The situation remains unchanged for Benjamin Cremaschi, Ian Fray, Franco Negri, Facundo Farias and Corentin Jean, who are still sidelined through injury. Messi will also be fit and available for the match.
