Messi Missing As Inter Miami Suffers Heavy Defeat At Atlanta United

Lionel Messi was missing in action as his new MLS club, Inter Miami suffered a heavy 5-2 defeat to Atlanta United.

This crushing defeat is the first loss suffered by the club since the Argentine superstar joined from Paris Saint Germain.

Miami manager Gerardo “Tata” Martino said Messi and Spanish defender Jordi Alba missed the game due to “muscular fatigue” and that their absences were not related to the FieldTurf surface at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
