Inter Miami CF will play its second game of the Breeze Airways Carolina Challenge Cup on Tuesday, February 15 at 8 p.m. ET, taking on hosts USL Championship team Charleston Battery.

Charleston comes into the match fresh off a victory in their first outing of the tournament, beating expansion side MLS Charlotte FC 1-0 on Saturday night. The game-winning goal was scored by 25-year-old American striker Aidan Apodaca, who signed for the team in January.
Charleston is led by newly appointed head coach Conor Casey, a former standout MLS player and forward for the United States Men’s National Team.

Inter Miami, meanwhile, will enter the match after a 1-1 draw with the Columbus Crew in the tournament opener. The team took the lead with a goal from Ariel Lassiter assisted by Gonzalo Higuaín, but a late Columbus equalizer allowed the teams to split the points.
