  • August 07, 2023 09:07

    Free kick for Miami as Busquets is pushed down by Ntsabeleng. Messi takes it. However, this is a long way out. He tries his luck but his it straight towards the wall. Looks like this is heading towards penalties

    Six added minutes

  • August 07, 2023 09:01

    We are into the final minutes of the half. Out of nowhere Miami are right back into the game. And that’s only because of the skipper. What a turnaround this

  • August 07, 2023 08:56

    Another set piece situation for Miami as it gets a free kick. Messi takes it. Sends one towards Taylor, who is fouled at the edge of the box! Another free kick for Miami. Messi takes it and this time it’s in a much more dangerous situation. OH MY WORLD! WHAT IS THIS GUY MADE OF! MESSI SCORES BRACE TO RESTORE PARITY! HOW CAN HE DO THIS GAME AFTER GAME!

  • August 07, 2023 08:55

    Busquets floats one inside the box towards Campana, who attempts a header but the ball is too high

  • August 07, 2023 08:53

    Free kick for Miami in a dangerous position for a handball. As usual Messi takes it. He floats one inside the box and IT IS HEADED INSIDE BY FARFAN FOR ANOTHER OWN GOAL! But Miami still on the backfoot. Messi’s men have less than 10 minutes to make something happen

  • August 07, 2023 08:51

  • August 07, 2023 08:41

    OH MY GOD! JUST WHEN MIAMI THOUGHT IT COULD DO SOMETHING! AN OWN GOAL! ROBERT TAYLOR WHAT HAVE YOU DONE. This is turning out to be a proper goal fest and might as well go on to become Messi’s first loss in Miami colours

  • August 07, 2023 08:35

  • August 07, 2023 08:32
    59’ Substitutions for Dallas

    IN: Arriola OUT: Obrian; IN: Ansah, OUT: Kamungo

  • August 07, 2023 08:29

    ALMOST! Alba on the left lane, found Messi inside the box, who in turn floated it towards Busquets who tried his luck from long range. But the ball blazed past the crossbar

  • August 07, 2023 08:27

    WHAT A CHANCE!!! Fereira had a golden opportunity to double the lead. It was just him, with Miller chasing him but he found a way to squander the chance as Miller finally intercepted to help Callender grab the ball

  • August 07, 2023 08:24

    Dallas has been relatively more dominant ever since Quignan scored the first goal. And that momentum is carried forward here as well. Velasco floated one inside the box, Ferreira tries to head it inside but the ball goes brushing past the crossbar

  • August 07, 2023 08:21

    CHANCE!! Busquets links up to Messi near the edge of the box. The Miami skipper, then does a 180 and finds Gomez inside the box, whose shot is weak and off target

  • August 07, 2023 08:18
    Second half begins

    Martinez gets the ball rolling for Miami as it starts the half in search of at least a goal to keep it in contention

  • August 07, 2023 08:00
    Half time!

    An intense half comes to an end. Despite constant pressure from Miami, the Messi-led side is left reeling at half time. Goals from Quignon and Kamungo help Dallas go into the half time break at an advantageous position.

  • August 07, 2023 07:56

    WHAT A COUNTER ATTACK FROM DALLAS! KAMUMGO GIVES DALLAS THE LEAD! What started as an attack initiated by Messi, transitioned into a perfect counter from Dallas as Ferreira got the ball at the half line. He then dribbled past a couple of defenders before finding Kamungo inside the box, who took it deep and slottted it inside the goal, under Callender

  • August 07, 2023 07:54

    Into the final few minutes of the first half. Dallas has restored parity at the right time and Miami is trying its best to get back on top, constantly keeping the opposition thinking. If the pink brigade can manage to maintain the same intensity, that goal could be closer than it thinks

  • August 07, 2023 07:48

    QUIGNON HELPS DALLAS EQUALISE. Farfan made a wonderful run on the left flank, before floating it inside the box, exposing the Miami defense to find Quignon. The latter then slotted it in without much trouble as the stadium erupted

  • August 07, 2023 07:48

    COULD’VE BEEN ANOTHER FOR MESSI! Arroyo’s inch perfect pass finds Messi at the half line and the Argentine just toyed with the midfield and progressed into the opposition’s half without much effort. He then put it forward towards Taylor, who dished out a low kept shot, which was deflected by Paez. Messi tries to capitalise on the rebound with a chipped shot over the keeper’s head but the ball is cleared right at the goal line

  • August 07, 2023 07:44

    WHAT A CHANCE! An error from a Dallas defender leads to a counter from Miami, led fueled by Messi, who moves quickly towards the box, before flicking it to Martinez inside the box. But the Miami forward makes a mess out of the situation. Doesn’t matter though as he is caught offside

  • August 07, 2023 07:38

    Wonderful run from Yedlin as he transitions quickly from one end to another. He changes the line of play from right to left, giving it to Arroyo. But there are just too many defenders for Inter Miami to breach. The attack comes to an end. With that, the players are asked to take a short drinks break

  • August 07, 2023 07:35

    A dangerous looking through ball came inside the box towards Obrian, with just a defender marking him. But before the Dallas forward could make use of it, he is caught offside

  • August 07, 2023 07:33

    Gomez tries to initate an attack on the left lane but Kamungo and Lletget combine converge to stop him in his tracks

  • August 07, 2023 07:30

    Gomez’ long-ranged effort is nowhere near the goal. Lands comfortably inside the stands

  • August 07, 2023 07:28

    The Busquets-Messi-Alba trifecta is proving to be a menace in the middle, constantly threatening the defense. Miami is pushing hard for another one

  • August 07, 2023 07:26
    16’ Yellow card

    Tafari is booked for a harsh tackle on Martinez

  • August 07, 2023 07:26

    Inter Miami is in no hurry as it has been dealing with short passes for quite a while. Callender has been getting the ball constantly, keeping him on his toes

  • August 07, 2023 07:23

    Free kick for Dallas as Velasco is fouled just inches away from the box. Velasco attempts to curl it in and almost gets it on target. But it is what it is, a good effort nonetheless from the number 20

  • August 07, 2023 07:17

    Inter Miami leads early on and it is the magician who does the trick again. MESSI SLOTS IT TO THE LEFT BOTTOM CORNER FROM OUTSIDE THE BOX! He just can’t stop scoring. A VAR check is initiated to check for a handball off Martinez but the replay shows the ball had curled enough to raise doubts. Clean goal

  • August 07, 2023 07:16

    ALMOST! Ibaega and Miller fought for the ball on the left of the box, with the former getting the better of the latter. Ibaega then finds Obrian, who quickly sends it to Velasco at the edge of the box. He tries his luck from afar, Callender gets his hands to the ball but fails to grab it, Ferreira heads it in on the rebound but it is called OFFSIDE

  • August 07, 2023 07:13

    A sedate start to the knockout clash as Dallas loses possession inside its half. Inter Miami deals with short passes and Callender gets the ball eventually

  • August 07, 2023 07:10

    FC Dallas will start the proceedings and Obrian will set the ball rolling. They will start right to left

    Lionel Messi and Co. will look to keep their new-found momentum going as they gear up to face FC Dallas in the Leagues Cup Round of 16.

    Inter Miami, which has been languishing at the bottom of the MLS (Major League Soccer) table, has found light at the end of the tunnel with the marquee signings of Messi and his former Barcelona teammate Sergio Busquets. With Jordi Alba being the latest recruitment, the pink brigade goes into the clash as a clear favourite at the Toyota stadium.

    On the back of two dominating wins against Atlanta and Orlando City, Inter Miami has been in prime form. Thanks to new skipper Messi, who has bagged a whopping five goals and an assist in his five appearances for the club.

    Meanwhile, Dallas which has two wins in its last three matches in the competition might have something up its sleeve. After losing a penalty shootout to Charlotte FC in its group stage opener, the Texan club have dispatched two straight Liga MX opponents (Necaxa and Mazatlán) en route to the knockouts.

    “It’s true the last game was different than the previous ones. There was more friction,” Miami head coach Gerardo “Tata” Martino reflected on his side’s performance against Orlando City, all too aware of the effect Messi has on rival clubs.

    “There’s a respect for the best player in the world, but then, when it comes to playing 90 minutes, both teams want to win,” added Martino.
