Messi had two goals before the game was 30 minutes in

After defeating Atlanta United 4-0 on Tuesday at DRV PNK Stadium

Inter Miami won Group J of the Leagues Cup and will now host a knockout stage match. Lionel Messi scored twice in his first start for Inter Miami.

Within the first 20 minutes of the game, Messi scored twice, but Robert Taylor quickly caught up, scoring two goals and providing an assist each.

Tata Martino was successful in defeating his former team, so Messi and Sergio Busquets appear to have been practicing for months.

In this redesigned Leagues Cup, the Five Stripes must now play Cruz Azul to determine who, in addition to Miami, advances to the knockout stages.

Eight minutes into the game, Miami took the lead, and they never looked back as Atlanta United paid the price for allowing Sergio Busquets the room to find Lionel Messi on the break.
