Messi scores in sixth straight game as Inter Miami reach Leagues Cup final
Lionel Messi continued his impressive run with Inter Miami by scoring his sixth goal in nine games as they secured a 4-1 victory over Philadelphia Union, earning them a place in the Leagues Cup final. Inter Miami put on a dominant performance, with Messi, Josef Martínez, and Jordi Alba all finding the back of the net in the first half of the match at Subaru Park in Pennsylvania.
This win allows Inter Miami to advance to the final of the Leagues Cup, where they will face off against Nashville SC. Nashville secured their spot in the final by defeating Liga MX club Monterrey 2-0 in their own semi-final match.
Since Messi’s arrival at Inter Miami in July, the team has seen a remarkable turnaround, winning all of their games with him on board. Messi’s presence has not only boosted the team’s performance on the field but also earned them a spot in the 2024 Concacaf Champions Cup for the first time in the club’s history.
Inter Miami’s success with Messi highlights the impact that star players can have on a team’s performance, both in terms of results and morale. The Leagues Cup final against Nashville SC presents an exciting opportunity for Inter Miami to continue their winning streak and potentially secure another trophy under Messi’s leadership.
