Lionel Messi’s eight goals have led his new club Inter Miami, who were bottom of the MLS Eastern Conference before his arrival, are now on the brink of the League Cup final when they face the Philadelphia Union in the semi-finals.
This match will be a true test of Inter Miami’s newfound strength, as the Union represents by far Messi’s biggest test since arriving in the United States.
Having taken down Cruz Azul, Atlanta United, Orlando City, FC Dallas and Charlotte FC, Inter Miami have impressed in relation to how they performed prior to Messi’s arrival, but have yet to claim a top-flight scalp.
That would be exactly what Philadelphia would represent, finishing third in the Eastern Conference, one year removed from atop the Eastern Conference, followed by an appearance in the MLS Cup Final. These 90 minutes will be a real test for Inter Miami, who are not only looking for League Cup glory, but will then try to make their mark in the rest of the MLS schedule.
