Lionel Messi has been in red-hot form ever since he put on that Inter Miami jersey. The Argentina FIFA World Cup winner seemed to have found a new lease of life when it comes to club football after his departure from PSG and he truly seems to be enjoying his time at Miami, which is evident from his supreme performances on the football field. With his introduction, Inter Miami, a team that struggled earlier, has become a side to beat. Messi made his MLS debut when he came off the bench and also scored against NY Red Bulls, helping the side win the match 2-0.

A win in this match will help Messi's team cut down their gap with 13th-placed New York City, who will play Montreal.
