Lionel Messi took matters into his own hands and built a new victory for Inter Miami in the MLS.

The exceptional Argentine star was the main highlight of the match against Nashville, with Sergio Busquets also scoring.   

Inter Miami is back on track. After a period of four games without a win, Nashville fell in the MLS match, which ended with a score of 3:1. Franco Negri accidentally scored an own goal in the 2nd minute, but just nine minutes later, Lionel Messi struck. He managed to get the ball after a pinball in the penalty area and skillfully sent it into the net.   

Before the break, Miami took the lead. Spanish veteran Sergio Busquets scored with his head, with Messi assisting from a corner.   

In the second half, Nashville couldn't recover, but Inter scored another goal, also credited to Lionel Messi. He scored from the penalty spot in the 81st minute, ensuring his team could finish the match without issues.   

Miami has now temporarily jumped to the top of the MLS standings, although they have played more games than any other team in the league.
