Messi continue to makes more MLS history

Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez both played starring roles for Inter Miami, who continued their winning streak against the New York Red Bulls.

Lionel Messi had a hand in all six goals while Luis Suarez scored a hat-trick as Inter Miami overcame the New York Red Bulls 6-2 at Chase Stadium.

The Eastern Conference leaders were on a three-match winning streak in MLS, but fell behind to Dante Vanzeir’s opener in the 30th minute.

However, the hosts turned the match on its head after the break, with Messi assisting a brace for half-time substitute Matias Rojas either side of getting on the scoresheet himself.

Suarez then took centre stage with a hat-trick inside 13 minutes – all assisted by his former Barcelona team-mate – while Emil Forsberg’s stoppage-time penalty was a mere consolation for the visitors, who are now without a win in four.
