Inter Miami was considerably outplayed in the match against Atlanta United. The Florida team went to their rivals' home without Lionel Messi, who was not called up due to previous physical discomfort. However, the game did not go in the best possible way, despite the fact that Gerardo Martino's team took the lead on the scoreboard. In the end, Atlanta beat the Florida team by a large score of 5-2.


A video went viral on social media in which several fans began chanting “Where is Messi” from the stands of the imposing venue located in the state of Georgia. It must be remembered that, as has already happened with other visits by Inter Miami to other stadiums in the league, tickets to see Messi increased. On this occasion, the fans were left without seeing the captain of the Argentine national team, who took advantage of his free time to go see his eldest son Thiago play in the pink team's academy.


After this defeat, Inter Miami said goodbye to a 12-match unbeaten streak since Messi signed. In addition, they missed a great opportunity to continue climbing towards the playoff zone. With seven games left, they have to overtake five teams to qualify for the Eastern Conference. In the midst of the dispute of the remaining matches for the local tournament, on September 27 they will face the Houston Dynamo in the final of the US Open Cup. “The final is a single match. It is very tempting to go for a title,” acknowledged the Argentine coach about the chance of adding the second star for the franchise.



What's next for Inter Miami?

The Florida team faces a complex schedule where they will have to face multiple teams and among them, a final of the US Open Cup on September 27. This could be Inter Miami's second official title after the arrival of Lionel Messi. The player has been one of the great signings of this summer and one of the reasons for his rest in the last few games is to have him in the best possible way for a series of extremely complicated games where Miami hopes to get the most points on the way to playoffs.
