Lionel Messi Returns to Action Against New York Red Bulls in MLS Clash of Titans



Lionel Messi is set to make his much-anticipated return to the pitch on Saturday night, as Inter Miami faces off against the New York Red Bulls in a highly anticipated matchup in the MLS Eastern Conference. This clash between two of the top 3 teams promises to be a thrilling encounter, with Inter Miami seeking revenge for their previous encounter with the Red Bulls in March when Messi sustained an injury.

After being sidelined, Messi has made a remarkable comeback, recently clinching the MLS Player of the Month for April. With nine goals and seven assists to his name, Messi currently leads the MLS in both categories, showcasing his exceptional form. Inter Miami is on a quest for their fourth consecutive victory, while the Red Bulls have been formidable, losing just one of their last 10 games.

Messi is expected to start the match against the New York Red Bulls, with kickoff scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET. Fans can catch all the action for free via MLS Season Pass on Apple TV. This game presents a must-watch opportunity for soccer enthusiasts as Messi continues to dazzle on the field.

In a record-breaking streak, Messi has notched his fifth two-or-more-goal contributions in five successive matches, underlining his dominance in the MLS. His 16 goal contributions in the first seven games of the season set a new league record, surpassing the previous best of 13 by Thierry Henry and Carlos Vela.

Should Messi register a goal or assist against the New York Red Bulls, he will join an elite group of players who have achieved this feat in the first eight games of a season in MLS history, alongside Cobi Jones and Clint Dempsey. The anticipation is high as Messi looks to make his mark once again.

Inter Miami currently leads the MLS Eastern Conference table with 21 points, followed closely by Cincinnati FC with 18 points. The Red Bulls are in third place with 17 points, while Toronto and Columbus trail behind with 16 and 15 points respectively.

Looking ahead, Inter Miami’s upcoming fixtures present exciting matchups for fans to look forward to. The team’s performance, led by Messi, will continue to be a focal point in the MLS as they aim to maintain their position at the top of the conference.
