Lionel Messi, Inter Miami roll over Philadelphia Union 4-1 to reach Leagues Cup final

Aug 16, 2023

Lionel Messi’s remarkable run with Inter Miami in the Leagues Cup continued Tuesday night.

Messi and Inter Miami rolled over the Philadelphia Union 4-1 in dominant fashion to secure their spot in the Leagues Cup final. The win sends Miami to its first ever final appearance in club history, and continues an incredible turnaround for a club that is the worst in Major League Soccer. It also will send Inter Miami to their first ever CONCACAF Champions Cup next year.

Messi, after Josef Martínez kicked things off with an early goal, picked up his ninth goal in just six games with the club. Messi caught a pass from Martínez, who was tackled in the process, and took off near midfield before launching a shot through three Union defenders. The goal pushed Miami’s lead to 2-0 not even 20 minutes into the contest.
