Atlanta United will surely have scars from their last meeting against Inter Miami. The game was played at the DRV PNK stadium where Inter Miami won 4-0 in the group stages of the Leagues Cup.
The Five Stripes though now have a chance to get the better of the opponents at their home stadium. Also, Lionel Messi is set to step foot on this pitch for the very first time.
Inter Miami are in amazing form since Lionel Messi’s debut. And his signing has probably also given The Herons a great moral boost having the seven-time Ballon d’Or in their ranks. Recently we have seen how they made a comeback even without Messi to win the bout against Sporting KC.
It will also be a special game for Josef Martínez who will be back to step foot at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium, this time as an opponent. Martínez joined Inter Miami on a free this January after being with Atlanta United from 2017.
