After the defeat in the final of the US Open Cup against the Houston Dynamo, Inter Miami turned the page and re-entered the MLS mode, where in a few days they faced another important commitment to their dreams of reaching in the playoff spot.
This Saturday, September 30, when the Herons will host New York City FC at DRV PNK Stadium, a direct rival of the Eastern Conference in the fight for playoffs spots.
One of the big questions about this next match continues to surround Lionel Messi, who since coming off the bench against Toronto FC last week, will not be active again against Orlando City or against Houston Dynamo in the US Open Cup.
Although Inter Miami chose to give Messi enough rest to help him regain his best physical form, everything indicates that the Argentine star will also be left out of the game against NYCFC next Saturday.
According to reports from journalist Gastón Edul of TyC Sports, and who is known as a source close to the Argentine star’s information, it is unlikely that Messi will start on Saturday against NYCFC, because the South Florida club is not want him bigger and he’ll be gone for the rest of the season.
Messi is also thinking about the next FIFA date
One of the aspects that was also discussed is that Messi and Inter Miami are also careful about this whole issue, thinking about the FIFA date in October, where the Argentine star will definitely report to the Albiceleste to face commitments against Paraguay and Peru, actually in the Conmebol qualifiers.
Therefore, his reappearance at Inter Miami may be delayed until after the FIFA date depending on the evolution of the physical condition of the muscular issue suffered by Messi.
