This match saw the eight-time Ballon d’Or winner assist the Uruguay striker three times. He spoke at the post-match interview saying:

“What we saw tonight is surprising because it hasn’t been seen in our sport before, but as a teammate and knowing Leo, nothing surprises me because that’s the quality player he is.”

“On the field, it’s a different feeling having him as a teammate because we know each other so well, sometimes without even looking at each other. That was another plus we had tonight on a great night,” he added.

Inter Miami go top of the Eastern Conference after their latest result, taking them three points above Cincinnati who have a game in hand.

Messi’s brilliant start of the season continues with his tally of 12 goals and 11 assists in 11 games across all competitions so far.
