0 159

Lionel Messi etched his name into MLS history with a record-shattering performance in Inter Miami CF’s 6-2 victory over the New York Red Bulls. His relentless playmaking ignited a second-half surge, setting a new league standard for both goal contributions (6) and assists (5) in a single match.

Despite conceding an early goal, Messi’s creativity quickly became apparent. His pinpoint through balls found Matías Rojas for his first two Miami goals, showcasing their immediate connection. Messi then showcased his enduring connection with former Barcelona teammate Luis Suárez, his perfectly weighted passes leading directly to the Uruguayan’s clinical hat trick.

“Leo’s performance was historic, and his technical ability on the assists was exceptional,” noted coach Gerardo “Tata” Martino. “But I must also highlight Suárez’s finishing and Rojas’s intelligent runs.”

Messi’s dominance was undeniable, and his playmaking prowess extended throughout the season. He now leads the MLS with both 10 goals and 12 assists, making him the clear MVP frontrunner.

“Playing with Leo makes everything easier,” Suárez emphasized. “Our understanding on the field creates opportunities for the entire team.”

Martino, no stranger to facing Messi, expressed awe at his continued brilliance: “Even after years of witnessing his talent, he always finds a way to surprise. His involvement in all six goals is something we may not see replicated for a long time.”

Messi’s impact on Inter Miami is undeniable. Since his debut, the team boasts a 15-7-3 record with him on the field, compared to 2-4-6 when he’s absent. Their relentless comeback win solidifies their position atop the Eastern Conference with 24 points through 12 games.
