In the absence of Argentine star Lionel Messi, captain of Inter Miami, the team suffered its first loss since the arrival of the “Bulga” by suffering a heavy 5-2 defeat against Atlanta United in the American Professional Football League.
Inter Miami’s series of 12 consecutive matches ended without defeat in all competitions, and the team seemed affected by the absence of Messi, who did not travel to Atlanta due to fatigue after the international period.
Inter Miami is in penultimate place in the same division with 28 points from 27 matches, 7 points behind the qualifying places for the playoffs.

Messi scored the winning goal for his country against Ecuador in the South American qualifiers for the 2026 World Cup, while he missed the great “Tango” victory over Venezuela by 3-0.
