Messi is still a doubt for the final today (27) at Inter Miami

Still feeling pain in his right thigh, Messi is doubtful at Inter Miami for the match against Houston Dynamo, this Wednesday (27), in the final of the US Open Cup.

It is worth remembering that this is the team’s second decision since the Argentine’s arrival at the club. A victory could set a record for the number 10 and with winning the Leagues Cup a month ago, Messi reached 42 titles in his professional career and tied with Daniel Alves as the greatest champion in history.

Therefore, if Inter Miami lifts the US Open Cup today, the Argentine would reach 43 victories and isolate himself at the top. That said, Messi played in the tournament’s semi-final, in the penalty shootout victory against Cincinnati, and would receive the medal for winning the title, even if he is unable to take the field in the final.

The number 10 was substituted in the first half in the 4-0 defeat against Toronto, last Wednesday. Thus, he was rested and was left out of the 1-1 draw with Orlando City last Sunday. Both games were for Major League Soccer.

Leo Messi participated in the last training session before the final on Tuesday (26), but coach Tata Martino did not guarantee the star’s presence in the final.

“First there’s the player, then the final and then what’s next for the team. These are the three points we have to evaluate. Without a doubt, there are players and players, and these issues are dealt with because it concerns Leo (Messi).” , said the Argentine coach.
