Messi likely to sit out Inter Miami CF vs DC United because of injury, As part of the Concacaf Champions Cup round-of-16 match on Wednesday, Lionel Messi had a goal and an assist before he was forced to leave the game with a leg injury, watching his Inter Miami CF team defeat Nashville SC 3-1 in the second leg.

Messi is likely to miss Saturday’s match against the Washington DC United because of a leg injury that he sustained during the legendary match between Inter Miami and DC United. Inter Miami coach Gerardo “Tata” Martino addressed Messi’s injury following the legendary match.

In order to avoid any “risks” associated with Messi’s injury, the club will take a cautious approach in handling the situation.

Martino said, “I don’t want to take any chances, but I think that he probably won’t be able to play on Saturday.” This is all I can say at this point. We will have some tests soon and we’ll see how he feels once we have them.

There is no sign that Messi appears to be injured as he exited the field in order to be replaced by Robert Taylor after the team suffered a 3-2 loss to CF Montréal earlier this week.

There is a muscle overload in Leo’s right leg. Keeping him out of harm’s way is the best thing we can do for him,” Martino explained. After halftime, we tried to see if he was able to last a little bit longer, but he was complaining about it, so he was taken out of the game.

In the history of Messi’s career, he has never been taken off a match in the second half earlier than the 50th minute of the second half.

The former Barcelona player assisted his former teammate Luis Suárez to score his fifth goal of the season in the 8th minute, putting his team 2-0 ahead of their opponents.

Having said that, Martino told reporters that he knew from the beginning of the season that Messi would not play every game. Whenever he isn’t playing or if he has to be replaced, to me it isn’t just about missing out on another player, it’s about missing out on the best player of all time.

In the quarterfinals of the Concacaf Champions Cup, the team will play the winner of the Monterrey vs FC Cincinnati match, which is set to take place next month, and it advanced with a score of 5-3 on aggregate.
