LIVE: Messi and Inter Miami vs Montreal

The biggest star in world soccer, Argentina’s Lionel Messi, is in town with his Inter Miami teammates to take on CF Montreal at Stade Saputo.

The World Cup champion, now 37, is in the starting lineup for Miami alongside, among others, the famous Luis Suarez and Sergio Busquets.

It will therefore be quite a sporting task for the Montreal team, which is still dealing with injuries to some of its important players, especially in the offensive sector.

We are in the first half. CF Montreal leads 2-0.
