The Argentina 2022 World Cup legend did not find the back of the net against Los Angeles, but provided two big assists that made the difference for the Leagues Cup champions.

His first assist came in the 51st minute when he found his former Barcelona teammate, Jordi Alba, in Los Angeles box and fed him with a ripping pass.

Alba latched on the through-ball and fired it into the net for Inter Miami’s second goal.

After Jordi Alba’s goal, Messi produced another magical display. Picking the ball from the halfway line following a defensive blunder by Los Angeles last-man, Messi paced with speed close to Los Angeles box.
