The Major League Soccer season kicked off with its opening game, Inter Miami vs. Real Salt Lake. Lionel Messi led Inter Miami to a 2-0 victory against Real Salt Lake on Wednesday. Although Messi did not score a goal, he set up both goals.

With Real Salt Lake’s Andrew Brody down on the ground due to injury, Messi sought to shoot from the edge of the box. Despite being down, the 8-time Ballon d’Or winner chipped the ball over Brody before his attempt was saved.

According to sportsbook pay per head sources, it was just one of Messi’s many brilliant moments as Miami began its much-anticipated Major League Soccer season with a victory.
