Messi fever is spreading across the United States. Regardless of the opponent, tickets to see the new Inter Miami star on the field are quickly sold out. None of the teams that have faced the Argentine, who is now dressed in pink, have been able to contain him.
The additions of Sergio Busquets in midfield and Jordi Alba on the left side of the field are also beneficial. Dallas has won two of the last three meetings between these clubs while drawing one. To stop the number 10, though, coach Nico Estévez must devise a different strategy.
The matchup is set for Monday early morning, August 7th. Messi will play away for the first since he arrived in Miami. Toyota Stadium will be the venue and the kick off time is 02:30 am GMT.
Inter Miami predicted lineup: Will Messi be a Starter?
Lionel Messi’s presence at Inter Miami has changed the team’s dynamic, and the team’s recent results reflect the Argentine star’s impact. Beckham’s club had gone six games without a win before the arrival of the world champion. Miami has now won three games in a row with three former Barcelona players. With the new acquisitions, the club has emerged as the clear favorite to win the new Leagues Cup. Tata Martino, the Argentine coach, will undoubtedly field the number 10 and captain of the team.
Since Sergio Busquets took over as manager, the midfield has completely transformed. The midfielder’s pauses, vision, and precise passes have been the ideal complement to getting the ball to Messi. Following Jordi Alba’s debut, we’re likely to see more band action. In the previous game against Orlando City, we saw some of the signature moves that Messi and Alba only execute in Barcelona.
Despite rumors of the arrival of a new forward, Venezuelan Josef Martinez has demonstrated that he is a strong supporter of Messi and his teammates. In his final game, the Venezuelan notched a goal and assisted Lionel.
Inter Miami Predicted Lineup: 4-3-3
Callender – Yedlin, Kryvtsov, Miller, Alba – Arroyo, Busquets, Cremaschi – Messi, Martínez, Taylor
Dallas predicted lineup: Hopes on Jesus Ferreira
The team coached by Spaniard Nico Estévez lost a penalty shootout to begin the Leagues Cup. Since then, they have won all their matches and advanced to the round of 16. The coach understands that he needs a sound strategy to counteract his opponent’s fresh arrivals while also exploiting their weaknesses.
The club’s and each player’s performance will be critical for FC Dallas to earn a solid result against the weakest team in MLS, which has become another franchise in less than a month. One of the leading players is North American striker Jesus Ferreira, who scored 10 goals in the local tournament but just one in the Leagues Cup. Lionel Messi has the same number of goals in three games as the whole Dallas team
FC Dallas predicted lineup: 4-3-3
Paes – Junqua, Martínez, Tafari, Geovane – Velasco, Quignon, Lletget – Obrian, Ferreira, Kamungo
