Title: Lionel Messi and Sergio Busquets Set to Start for Inter Miami Against Atlanta United
Miami, Florida – In a much-anticipated match against Atlanta United, Inter Miami’s star players Lionel Messi and Sergio Busquets are expected to make their first starts, according to the head coach Tata Martino. This announcement comes after the former Barcelona teammates made their debuts from the bench against Cruz Azul last weekend.
Messi, who was recently named Miami’s club captain, showcased his brilliance by scoring a stunning free kick in stoppage time to secure a victory in their Leagues Cup match. The Argentine maestro has already made a significant impact on the team, bringing a new level of play. Martino praised Messi’s exceptional skills and compared his performance to the hunger players display in local matches, where everyone wants the ball.
Regarding the potential starting lineup, Martino stated that it would depend on Messi and Busquets’ fitness levels. However, both players have shown remarkable form and are likely to grace the pitch from the first whistle.
Miami midfielder Robert Taylor has lauded the influence of Messi and Busquets, acknowledging the duo’s massive impact on the game. Their arrival has brought a wave of excitement within the team as they add a new dimension to Miami’s playing style.
