Lionel Messi lead Inter Miami to the longest winning streak in the club’s history

Although the captain of Inter Miami, Lionel Messi, didn’t score or assist, his team still managed to come back to win 3-2 against Montreal Impact in their 13th MLS match, maintaining their lead in the rankings.

This marked the first time the captain of the pink shirt club traveled to Canada to compete, and he was warmly welcomed by Montreal fans. However, Inter Miami had a tough away trip to Montreal Impact’s field, conceding two goals within just 10 minutes.

In the 22nd minute, taking advantage of an Inter Miami player’s passing error, Montreal organized a sharp counter-attack, with the striker wearing the number 10 shirt, Duke, scoring a shot past goalkeeper Callender, putting the score at 1-0 for the home team. In the 32nd minute, continuing the counter-attack from the left wing, Vilsaint received the ball in a favorable position and curled it past Callender to double the gap.

Receiving two buckets of cold water made Miami’s game somewhat difficult. However, they quickly equalized before the first half ended. In the 44th minute, Matias Rojas scored a superb goal from a free kick. Just 4 minutes later, from a corner kick, Luis Suarez had a close-range shot, equalizing the score at 2-2. This goal helped Suarez rise to the top of the top scorer list with 11 goals, equal with Christian Benteke, just behind him is captain striker Messi with 10 goals and 9 assists.

Inter Miami ended the match with a final goal in the 59th minute. Starting from Messi’s dribble in the middle of the field, he passed to Rojas, and the striker quickly flicked the outside of his cheek for Cremaschi to run down to face the goalkeeper of the home team. The midfielder wearing the number 30 shirt skillfully escaped the defender’s clutches before sending the ball into the net to set the score at 3-2.

During Rojas’ goal for Miami, Messi was not on the field. The Argentine striker was fouled by his opponent in the situation that led to Rojas’s direct free kick and needed care from the medical team on the field.

According to MLS rules, a player who is in pain and being treated by the medical team must stay off the field for two minutes before returning to play, and this angered Messi when he complained about having to wait.

Messi had a good performance against Montreal. This is also good news for the Argentine team when Copa America 2024 is approaching and their captain is in the best condition.

With a 3-2 victory over Montreal, Inter Miami continues to hold the top of the MLS 2024 table with 27 points. They will continue to have a trip to Orlando City on May 16.
