Lionel Messi, the Argentine maestro and World Cup winner, showcased his magic on the field once again, leading Inter Miami to a convincing 3-1 victory over reigning MLS champions, Los Angeles FC.
The showdown took place at the electric BMO Stadium, where Messi masterminded two crucial assists that set the tone for Miami’s triumph.
Facundo Farias, Jordi Alba, and Leonardo Campana found the back of the net for Inter Miami, effectively cancelling out Ryan Hollingshead’s lone effort for the hosts.
This statement win not only secured three vital points but also propelled Miami closer to the playoffs, now just nine points adrift with nine games left in the season.
Since his sensational debut on July 22nd, Messi’s impact has been nothing short of extraordinary. Inter Miami has remained undefeated in 11 consecutive fixtures, with Messi himself contributing 11 goals and five assists across all competitions.
The DRV PNK Stadium in Fort Lauderdale will be the next battleground as Inter Miami faces Sporting Kansas City on September 10th.
With Messi in prime form, fans can expect more moments of brilliance as the club continues its quest for glory.
