Messi and Inter Miami face an affordable duel to continue climbing positions

New York, Sep 19 (EFE).- Leo Messi’s Inter Miami faces this Wednesday an a priori affordable duel against Toronto, bottom of the Eastern Conference, with which the team in pink hopes to continue climbing positions in the MLS in its search for the ‘playoff’.

After twelve games undefeated after the arrival of the Argentine star, Inter Miami was beaten 5-2 last Saturday at the Atlanta United field in a match in which Messi did not play due to rest and precaution after his concentration with the Argentine team. .

The 10 has trained normally (Inter Miami shared an image of Messi exercising this Tuesday) and is expected to return to action this Wednesday.

The team coached by Gerardo ‘Tata’ Martino has 28 points after 27 games, while DC United, which occupies ninth position in the East (the last one that gives access to the playoffs), has 35 points after 29 games.

DC United will host Argentine Thiago Almada’s Atlanta United this Wednesday in the American capital.

Inter Miami only has seven games left to play in the MLS regular season, so it cannot afford many setbacks from now on.

The three points seem especially essential against a Toronto in ruins, last in the East (22 points after 28 games) and which has only won one of its last fifteen games including the MLS and the Leagues Cup.

Toronto lost last weekend in a Canadian match against the Vancouver Whitecaps (1-2) and, despite its bad moment, has notable names in its squad such as the Italians Lorenzo Insigne and Federico Bernardeschi.

Inter Miami will begin a crucial week against Toronto since on Sunday they will face a rising Orlando City at home – and in a Florida rivalry duel – and on Wednesday they will play the final of the US Open Cup against the Houston Dynamo.

Precisely Orlando City, second in the East, also stands out in this special MLS day during the week as it visits New York City this Wednesday after its enormous comeback on Saturday against the Columbus Crew (4-3).

Since the Leagues Cup break, the team from central Florida, with Uruguayan Facundo Torres as a figure, has four wins and one draw in five games in the MLS, including prestigious victories against Cincinnati (leader of the East) and St. Louis City (leading the West).

St. Louis City, debutants and the league’s big revelation this year, will welcome Los Angeles FC (LAFC) in a very succulent face-to-face between the two best teams in the West.

Also notable on this day are the Montreal-Cincinnati, Houston Dynamo-Vancouver Whitecaps and LA Galaxy-Minnesota United matches. EFE
