The Atlanta United team will challenge the Inter Miami team in a MLS in Mercedes-Benz Stadium Stadium, Georgia on Saturday, September 16, 2023. For streaming coverage of Atlanta United vs Inter Miami, preview and how to watch it, see in this article.
Atlanta United will host Inter Miami at the Mercedes-Benz stadium on Saturday (16/9) afternoon in the continuation of the 2023 United States professional football league / MLS. This match will be a tough test for the visiting team which will likely be without Lionel Messi.
Atlanta Utd has not shown a convincing performance in recent times. From the last 8 matches, they were only able to achieve 2 wins, while the rest suffered 5 defeats.
At home, Atlanta is also unreliable with a record of 2 wins and 2 losses from the last 5 matches. Therefore, they have no reason to be confident facing the best team in the United States at the moment.
On the other hand, Inter Miami is in very good form. Since Lionel Messi joined, they have never lost. Even when Messi was absent due to defending the Argentine national team, Inter Miami was still able to win back against Sporting Kansas with a score of 3-2 at home.
However, playing away from home in MLS is a different matter. Without Messi, Inter Miami has only won 2 of the last 8 away matches in MLS. With Messi, they won all last 2 away games.
Messi is the deciding factor for Inter Miami. The former Barcelona captain has scored 12 goals and provided 5 assists in 13 matches for his new club. However, Messi has not fully recovered from his physical condition after defending the Argentine national team in the 2026 World Cup qualifiers. La Pulga was absent from the match against Bolivia because he felt uncomfortable. Coach Lionel Scaloni said that Messi was not ready to play and did not want to take risks.
In the last 3 times they met at the Mercedes-Benz stadium, Atlanta United always beat Inter Miami. The aggregate score of the 3 matches is 7-1 in favor of Atlanta United. The last meeting between the two teams took place in June this year, when Atlanta won 2-0 thanks to goals from Josef Martinez and Marcelino Moreno.
If Messi cannot appear, Inter Miami will find it difficult to match Atlanta Utd at their home ground. Atlanta has the advantage in head-to-head history and the motivation to improve their position in the standings.
On the other hand, Inter Miami will probably play cautiously and try to rely on counter attacks. The experience of winning over Sporting KC in the last match can lift the morale of the players. Without Messi, it is estimated that the hosts can get three points, although it is certainly not an easy matter to get them.
