Lionel Messi scored twice for Inter Miami in their 4-1 win vs. New England Revolution.

Messi has now scored in six of Inter Miami’s seven league matches in which he has played in this season, having scored in every match except their opening game. Against New England Revolution, it was New England who took an early 1-0 lead with less than one minute into the match.

With New England leading 1-0, Robert Taylor would play a pass into Lionel Messi and he would score from inside the penalty area to draw Inter Miami level. Much of the crowd in New England would celebrate Messi’s goal.

Sergio Busquets and Lionel Messi would combine once more in their careers, this time Busquets with a through ball to Lionel Messi and the 36 year old would score to give Inter Miami the 2-1 lead.

He would also get an assist for Inter Miami’s last goal of the match, a pass to Luis Suárez and the Uruguayan would score from inside the penalty area. With his two goals and assist, Messi also became the first player in MLS history to have multiple goal contributions in five consecutive matches.

The Argentine has 11 goals and six assists in 10 matches with Inter Miami this season and has 22 goals all time for the club, seven behind Gonzalo Higuaín’s club record of 22 goals.


  1. Not that it means anything since after all, It’s MLS and every league loves to hype itself.
    Messi reached 22 goals faster than any other previous player and needs just 3 goals to beat
    NONE OTHER than El Pipita’s Inter record of 25 goals from 70 played games.

    I don’t know if it was Messi’s first time ever playing on Astro turf and not natural grass which will be the same kind here in Atlanta for his first COPA game.

  2. Inter already won the legue, they already ahead in the match and theu got a penalty and their skipper having a form dip yet they didnt give him the pk
    Strange…!!!! I wont see this in any top5 legue teams
    They will support their strikers always to win and be the number 1 scorer in the legue
    Slowly but surely both inter and sevilla are no more supporters of our players

  3. Messi is in red hot form and reminds of his days at Barcelona where he was the prime goal scorer for them. MLS might be a relatively easy league but having inform Messi in Copa is imperative for Argentina.
