Coming off a 3-1 loss to Monterrey in the Concacaf Champions Cup Quarterfinal just 3 days earlier, Inter Miami becomes healthy and ready to go. Sporting KC on the other hand, had a little more rest after a 3-3 draw with the Portland Timbers, last Sunday, but still could not defeat Leonel Messi and company.

Making his first start since March 2nd, Leonel Messi makes his much anticipated return to MLS. Messi is second in goals for Miami (5), just one under Luis Suárez (6). Messi added one of the 5 goals last night coming in the 51’ from outside the 18-yard box just past the hands of SKC goalkeeper, Tim Melia. “He’s able to beat me.” Melia said about Messi’s goal. “Take him out of that game and its not a 3-2 game” after being quoted that he didn’t want Messi to come to Kansas City and play.

Sporting Kansas City is back at Children’s Mercy Park this Saturday to take on rival St. Louis City at 7:30p (KO 7:40p) and looks to add to there points early in the season.
