More Details

Due to a knee injury, Messi was unable to play in Miami’s scoreless draw against Orlando City on Wednesday night. This is the team’s fifth league game without Messi (8-2-4, 28 points) since joining the Eastern Conference.

In those five games, the Herons have only managed one victory and two draws. They have seven wins and are undefeated in the nine games he has participated in.

But it always seemed like load management had more to do with Wednesday’s absence. Furthermore, Messi was not listed on the league’s player availability report on Friday night, despite coach Tata Martino expressing optimism that the eight-time Ballon d’Or winner will return on Saturday.

“We trained well yesterday, and we hope to train well today,” Martino said Friday, via an interpretation from Spanish by USA Today. “We will define it after training, but we are optimistic about (Saturday’s) match.”

Prior to Saturday’s match, Messi leads the MLS with 12 assists and 10 goals, while Luis Suarez, a former FC Barcelona colleague, is one of three players tied for the lead in goals with 11.Prior to Saturday’s match, Messi leads the MLS with 12 assists and 10 goals, while Luis Suarez, a former FC Barcelona colleague, is one of three players tied for the lead in goals with 11.
