Messi scores in 6th straight to put Inter Miami into Leagues Cup final

Lionel Messi continued to amaze Tuesday night in Inter Miami CF's 4-1 win over the Philadelphia Union in the semifinals of the Leagues Cup at Subaru Park in Chester, Pennsylvania, according to ESPN.

First-half goals from Messi, Josef Martínez and Jordi Alba staked the visiting team to an insurmountable lead as Miami marched into the inaugural Leagues Cup final, winning every one of its games since the Argentina World Cup champion joined the club in July.

Gerardo Martino's team will face Nashville SC, a 2-0 winner over Liga MX club Monterrey in the late semifinal Tuesday night. They'll play in the final Saturday night in Nashville.

Miami also clinched a spot in the 2024 Concacaf Champions Cup -- a first in the team's history -- by reaching the final.

Since Messi's arrival in Miami, the team has scored 21 goals in six games -- netting four in four of those contests. Prior to him getting there, it had managed just 22 in 22 MLS matches.
