In a battle to avoid last place, two Serie A sides will go toe-to-toe in the International Champions Cup on Tuesday.
Juventus and Inter will cap off their preseason tournament on Tuesday in Miami. The winner will get seventh place.
Juventus began this tournament by going to penalties after a 1-1 score against Everton. They lost the shootout 6-5 and then limped to a 3-1 defeat to the Los Angeles Galaxy.
Meanwhile, Inter is simply looking to net their first goal. They lost to Chelsea 2-0 in the opener of this tournament and then were routed 4-0 against Valencia.
Check out the vitals and take a look at the biggest area of focus for each side.

Key Storyline for Juventus
Which Strikers Will Stick?
Juventus enjoy the luxury of having a surplus of strikers. It appears they are going to turn that into some cash.
Sky Sports passed along this blunt quote from general manager Beppe Marotta: "I don't want to make names, but we have six strikers and we'll keep only four of them."
Let's assume that new arrivals Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente aren't going anywhere. That leaves Fabio Quagliarella, Alessandro Matri, Sebastian Giovinco and Mirko Vucinic as candidates to be on the move.
Sky Sports speculates Quagilarella and Matri are the most likely to be moved.
Marotta may already know who he wants to ship out, or he may not. Either way, the forthcoming matches are a chance for Juve strikers to raise their value.
Matri has scored one of Juventus' two goals in this tournament, and there is no doubt that Juventus would like him, or one of the three other available strikers, to add a few brilliant plays in this match to help pique the interest of other clubs.
Key Storyline for Inter
Can Inter Figure out How to Score?
With their Serie A play just three weeks away, Inter needs to figure out how to start scoring goals. As we discussed above, Valencia has been outscored 6-0 in their two ICC games.
The team has looked old and slow. They controlled just 44 percent of possession against Chelsea and an even worse 37 percent against Valencia. In those two matches, Inter has fired 24 shots, but just five have been on target.
Some growing pains under new manager Walter Mazzarri were to be expected. However, this has been a little extreme.
While there is little outside of roster changes that can help this team get quicker, they need to make big strides in their execution. They must focus on crisper passes and working for better looks.
Prediction: Juventus 3, Inter 0
There is nothing to suggest that Inter is ready to turn it around. However, it's not like Juventus has been setting the world on fire, but at least they are being competitive. That will be enough to earn them an easy win in this game.
