Engaged in the CONCACAF Champions Cup with his club Inter Miami, Messi had a narrow escape against Nashville in the round of 16 (2-2). While the ‘Pulga’ had just reduced the gap to 2-1, the Argentinian was the victim of a violent involuntary tackle during a pressing phase. The Argentine world champion came to press his defender, who at the time of his pass, continued his gesture at the side of the left shin of the former Parisian.

After staying on the ground for some time, Leo Messi returned to the game, and helped his team equalize in the final moments, with a goal from his friend Luis Suarez in the 95th minute. More fear than harm, and as usual he even scored a goal with finesse with his left foot (52nd). Regarding the first leg, Messi, Suarez, Alba, Busquets and company will play the eighth return in a week, on March 14 for a place in the quarterfinals.
