Lionel Messi Slays Orlando City To Continue GOAT Form For Inter Miami by tundetech3: 9:59am On Aug 03, 2023
Lionel Messi has settled in at Miami and scoring for fun for his new team Inter Miami following another impressive outing against Orlando City.

There is no stopping Lionel Messi at Inter Miami at the moment after another match-winning performance for his new side.

Messi scored his second brace in as many matches as Inter thrashed Orlando City 3-1 in the Leagues Cup on Thursday morning.

The 35-year-old netted a goal in either half to inspire his new team to a third consecutive win in the Leagues Cup.

Inter vs Orlando: Brief
The home side went into the game looking to extend their winning run to three matches but were given a scare by their visitors.

Inter started on a fine note when Robert Taylor and Messi combined superbly to fire them ahead in the seventh minute.

However, the lead lasted just 10 minutes before Cesar Araujo equalised for Orlando which saw both sides level at the break.

After the break, Inter started the second half as they did the first, with Josef Martinez restoring their lead just six minutes in.

With 18 minutes left to play, Martinez turned provider as he set up Messi to complete his brace with what proved to be the winner

Messi continues fine form
Argentina’s hero at the 2022 FIFA World Cup, Messi, has become the main man at Inter Miami.

Miami, who is now the team’s new leader after he was named captain of the club, has also become their talisman on the pitch following his match-winning performances.

The World Cup winner inspired the home side to another impressive outing in the Leagues Cup as they defeated City to continue their fine run of form.

Messi scored two goals to make it back-to-back braces in the Leagues after the double in the win against Atlanta United late last month.

He has now been involved in six goals, five goals and one assist, in just three matches for Inter Miami since he debuted against Cruz Azul.
