Lionel Messi leaves Selena Gomez, Leonardo DiCaprio and other A-list celebrities in awe during Inter Miami win

Lionel Messi left many A-list celebrities in awe as he inspired Inter Miami to another victory, this time against LAFC in the MLS.

Earlier in the summer, Messi made a huge decision to ditch European football by leaving French giants Paris Saint Germain for MLS side Inter Miami.

Since his arrival in the United States, Messi has inspired Inter Miami to an 11-match unbeaten run.

On Sunday night, Inter Miami were in MLS action as they faced LAFC at the BMO Stadium.



A huge list of celebrities were down to attend the match, including the likes of Prince Harry, LeBron James, Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Holland and Selena Gomez.

During the match, Gomez was spotted reacting to a passage of play which Messi was in the centre of.

The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner was played through on goal by a brilliant pass from Diego Gomez.


However, Messi’s left-footed shot from close range was wonderfully denied by McCarthy.

Singer/actress Gomez was left stunned as she sat with her eyes wide open.

The match ended in a 3-1 victory for Inter Miami, thanks to goals from Facundo Arias, Jordi Alba and Leonardo Campana. Ryan Hollingshead was the scorer for LAFC.


Despite failing to get on the scoresheet, Messi did produce two assists to help his side clinch the all-important victory.

Ever since Messi signed for Inter Miami, the Argentine has been attracting major interest from every corner of the city.

During the match against LAFC, a pitch invader was seen trying to get up close and personal with the former Barcelona man.


However, the fan was swiftly stopped by Messi’s now-famous bodyguard, who grabbed the fan by the neck and dragged him away.

Messi said after the match: “The group is growing more. I’ve been saying it since the beginning of all of this, we were lucky to get in a tournament and get to a final.

“Now, we’re going to look to hit the objective of being among the best eight to try and win the league. This is the way. We continue growing and obviously winning provides a lot of confidence.”

Inter Miami will be back in MLS action on September 10 as they welcome Sporting KC to the DRV PNK Stadium.
