In the Eastern Conference, David Beckham and his Inter Miami finished in 10th position on the 19-team table with 24 points. They had a record of seven victories, three draws and ten defeats from the 23 league games played.

To this effect, Nashville SC, New England Revolution, Montreal Impact and Inter Miami qualified for the play-in round of the 2020 MLS football.
Inter Miami were pitched against the seventh-placed team Nashville SC and needed to overcome their opponents in their backyard to seal a place in the playoffs proper. However, they failed to meet the target as they were well beaten by their hosts in what was the biggest game of their short history.

Dax McCarthy wrapped up the 3-0 win for Nashville with his 57thminute strike to send them into the playoffs where they will face Toronto FC for a place in the Eastern Conference semi-finals.
