In the eighth minute, Messi took a pass from his longtime Barcelona teammate Sergio Busquets, surged forward, and struck off the right post before tapping in his own rebound. Then, in the 22nd minute, Messi put Miami ahead 2-0 off a pass from Robert Taylor.

With Messi rightly commanding much of the attention from Atlanta’s defenders, opportunities opened for other Miami players. Taylor scored in the 44th minute, then made it 4-0 in the 53rd after being set up by Messi.

It may be too early to see Messi carry Miami over their poor position in the league. However, if the Argentinian can repeat such performances, it is not Mission Impossible to dream of.
