Inter Miami manager Tata Martino emphasized the significance of his team breaking free from their recent struggles, following their victorious outing against Sporting KC.

Miami secured a hard-fought 3-2 win, breaking a streak of five games without a victory across all competitions. The match unfolded before a massive crowd of over 70,000 fans at Arrowhead Stadium.

Erik Thommy opened the scoring for the hosts in the sixth minute, but Diego Gomez swiftly equalized twelve minutes later. Lionel Messi’s remarkable goal shortly after halftime put Miami ahead 2-1.

Thommy notched his second goal just before the hour mark, but Luis Suarez’s strike in the 71st minute ensured Martino’s squad clinched the win.

This triumph came as a much-needed response after their elimination from the CONCACAF Champions Cup by Monterrey earlier in the week.

Looking ahead, Miami’s upcoming fixture in the Major League Soccer sees them facing Atlanta United. Martino expressed relief at leading the standings, particularly considering the challenges of the forthcoming week.

He emphasized the significance of breaking their cycle of draws, losses, and errors, highlighting the team’s ability to regain confidence and secure victories even amidst a demanding schedule.

Before this victory, Miami’s last away win dated back to mid-March against D.C. United. With defeats against New York Red Bulls and Monterrey, this recent win provides a significant morale boost, propelling Messi’s team to the top of the MLS Eastern Conference.

In their next MLS encounter, Miami will host Nashville, currently second from the bottom in the league standings.

This fixture marks the second meeting between the two teams in just over a month, following Miami’s victory over Nashville in the Champions Cup round of 16.
