Can't you do it without you! Messi is absent from Miami with only 1 win + lost the title He has 11 wins and 34 goals + won the first title
On October 1, Beijing time, Miami International drew 1-1 with New York City, Messi continued to be absent, the team continued to be winless, almost unable to go straight to the playoffs, can only compete for the play-offs qualification.
Before Messi joined, Internacional Miami was only the bottom team in the East. After he joined, the whole team was renewed, and immediately won the CONCACAF Cup, which was also the first championship in the team's history. And in the 12 games he played in all competitions, Miami won 11 and drew 1 (including a penalty shoot-out victory), scoring a total of 34 goals!
However, Messi is 35 years old after all, affected by fitness and injuries, and has missed the last three consecutive games, resulting in a 0-0 draw with Orlando City by Miami International, a 1-2 loss of Houston in the US Open Cup final, and a 1-1 draw by New York City today.
During the September national team break, Messi returned to Argentina to compete, and the Miami international beat Kansas City 3-2 but lost 5-2 to Atalanta, ending a 12-game unbeaten run. All in all, the Mei Ball King is not there, their record is 5 games, 1 win, 2 draws and 2 defeats, and only 7 goals have been scored.
At present, although Messi has resumed training, he is still unable to play for the sake of caution. The Miami International is 4 points behind Eastern Conference 9th Montreal with 1 game less, 5 points behind Eastern Conference 8th New York City in 2 games less, and 12 points behind Eastern Conference 7th Nashville in the same game, almost unable to go straight to the playoffs, but theoretically still has the opportunity to enter the top 9 and participate in the play-offs.
However, in the last 4 games, they must strive to win all of them, otherwise they may not make the playoffs! Can this be done? Much depends on whether Messi can return.
