  • Stade Saputo | Montréal, Quebec

These sides met back on March 10, with Montréal blitzing Inter Miami at Chase Stadium for a 3-2 win.

However, Messi missed that early-season match due to rest (fixture congestion) and both Luis Suárez and Sergio Busquets were late substitutes.

Now, considering Inter Miami lead MLS in goals (32), points per game (2.0) and several other categories, does revenge await at Stade Saputo?

  • Record: 3W-4L-3D (12 points)
  • Standings: 11th in Eastern Conference

Montréal have reached the double-digit game mark under new head coach Laurent Courtois, who arrived in January after leading the Columbus Crew's MLS NEXT Pro team – including to the 2022 league title.

Courtois hasn't been dealt the easiest hand, though, starting the season with a six-game road trip and weathering injuries to key attackers Matías Cóccaro, Josef Martínez, Kwadwo Opoku and Dominic Iankov. Last weekend's 4-1 setback at Nashville SC was a tough pill to swallow, too.

Still, there are clear signs that Montréal can challenge for an Audi MLS Cup Playoffs spot. Maybe not like their record-setting heights in 2022, but Courtois' squad shouldn't be underestimated.

Messi has won three of the past four Player of the Matchday awards, leading MLS with 22 goal contributions (10g/12a) as Inter Miami have fortified their Supporters’ Shield perch behind four straight victories.

Messi has also broken several MLS records in recent weeks, most recently single-game assists (5) and single-game goal contributions (6) in a 6-2 rout of the New York Red Bulls.

Thus, it’s no surprise that Messi is tied with Suárez for the Golden Boot presented by Audi lead – and both FC Barcelona legends are among the MVP frontrunners as the 2024 campaign reaches its one-third mark.

While Inter Miami can’t shake their habit of conceding early goals, is that flaw rendered moot when Messi, Suárez & Co. can seemingly score at will?
