Atlanta United vs Inter Miami: Match Thread and How to Watch

No Messi, no problems?

MLS: Leagues Cup-Atlanta United FC at Inter Miami CF Nathan Ray Seebeck-USA TODAY Sports

Been waiting for this one a looooooong time.

Back when the schedule dropped, September 16th was circled immediately as Josef Martinez’s return to Atlanta. Yes, El Rey will still have his moment, but it’s now merely a part of the biggest spotlight to hit Mercedes-Benz Stadium and Atlanta United in years. He’s joined by another returning Five Stripe hero in manager Tata Martino, and playing alongside global legends of the game, including the one it’s impossible to say enough about: Lionel Messi (who, update, didn’t travel! SIKE!).

With the butterflies (hopefully) out in the 4-0 Leagues Cup defeat in Ft. Lauderdale, Atlanta United hosts the world’s attention in a packed-out Benz in what’s sure to be an emotional, historic, and memorable match as the Five Stripes get another go at being the first to take down the “new” Inter Miami with a completely rejuvenated team of their own.
