Lionel Messi’s “unbeaten” record stopped after scoring for three years.

Inter Miami lost 1-3 to Atlanta United in the 17th round of the 2024 Major League Soccer (MLS) held at Chase Stadium in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday (Korea time). Miami ended its nine-game unbeaten streak.

Messi made his comeback after one game of rest. Miami put forward Messi, Luis Suarez, Sergio Busquets, and Jordi Alba. However, Atlanta led the way with multiple goals from Sabah Lovzanice, widening the gap to 0-2. Messi scored a chasing goal in the 17th minute of the second half, but when Jamal Thiare scored a wedge goal, Miami lost 1-3.

The defeat shattered one of Messi’s previous records. “Despite Messi’s goal in the match, he lost his personal record for the first time since May 2021 when he lost the club game he scored. The last game he lost after scoring a goal was against Celta de Vigo during his time at Barcelona,” British sports bible reported.

The last time Messi scored a goal and lost was on the day Barcelona lost 1-2 to Celta Vigo in the 2020-21 season. At that time, Messi scored the first goal in the 28th minute of the first half, but Santi Mina equalized. Later, Barcelona could not overcome its numerical inferiority as Clement Langle was sent off with a cumulative exit of warnings, and eventually suffered a come-from-behind defeat due to Mina’s multiple goals. Since this day, Messi has never scored a goal and lost in as many as three years. As such, it shows that Messi’s presence has had a tremendous impact on the outcome of the game.

At the end of the season, Messi left Barcelona, where he had been for a long time. Despite his free agency status, Messi wanted to accompany his club, but due to Barcelona’s financial difficulties, he could not remain with the club. He ended up saying goodbye in tears at a press conference, and played in the French Ligue 1 on his way to PSG in the 2021-22 season. Messi has scored 32 goals and 34 assists while playing for PSG in 75 matches. Messi continued his top-notch skills since joining MLS last season. He also scored 11 goals and nine assists in 11 matches this season.스포츠토토사이트

Messi said, “I swept all trophies as a player. I can tell you that I have won the UEFA Champions League four times, La Liga 10 times, French Ligue 2, Club World Cup three times, UEFA Super Cup three times, and Spanish Cup seven times. I have also won the Ballon d’Or, which is given to the best player, eight times.
