Messi Luis Suarez Inter Miami MLS

It was the Luis Suarez show for Inter Miami Saturday evening as the Herons ran Orlando City into the ground in MLS rivalry week.


It was the most dominant performance we have seen in the Lionel Messi Era of Inter Miami. Up 3-0 at halftime, Luis Suarez scored a brace inside the first 12 minutes of the match while U.S. men’s national team midfielder Julian Gressel went into the halftime break with two assists. The entire Herons squad played as one unit, and refused to let up on the gas pedal all evening.

Suarez ended up with four total goal contributions on the evening, notching two assists on top of his early brace. The Uruguayan played a pivotal role in the second half, assisting the Heron’s fifth goal of the night – a brilliant cross to the head of a sprinting Lionel Messi. The Argentine net two himself, with a five-minute brace in the 57th and 62nd minutes of the match.

It was a stunning, and dominant, performance from Miami, who smashed their arch-rivals and utterly dominated them in every aspect of the match.
