Lionel Messi, Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba linked up for Inter Miami goal, it was a strike made in Barcelona

Lionel Messi, Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba linked up for Inter Miami goal, it was a strike made in Barcelona

It was a strike made in Barcelona.

Lionel Messi Sergi Busquets and Jordi Alba teamed up for Inter Miami’s second as the Florida outfit beat MLS champions Los Angeles 3-1 at the BMO Stadium.

Facundo Farias, Alba and Leonardo Campana all netted to cancel out Ryan Hollingshead's effort for the hosts.

The victory against last term’s MLS Cup winners puts Miami just nine points shy of a play-off spot with nine games remaining of the season.

Since Messi made his debut on July 22, Inter Miami have won the Leagues Cup and are unbeaten in their 11 outings.

The 36-year-old seven-time Ballon d’Or winner has scored 11 goals and claimed a further five assists across his 11 appearances since moving to Inter Miami from Paris Saint-Germain this summer.

And Messi claimed two of those assists in Sunday night’s statement victory.

Indeed, Inter Miami’s second goal of the affair has gone viral after it included link-up play between former Barcelona stars Busquets, Messi and Alba.

Busquets picked up the ball in midfield and drilled a pass through the lines to the feet of Messi.

The Argentine turned in acres of space and fed a ball in behind the Los Angeles defence into the path of the onrushing Alba, who one-on-one with the keeper, side-footed the ball into the net.

Of course, the trio were part of the hugely successful Barcelona side that won the Treble together in 2015.

And their arrival in the MLS has attracted the interest of Hollywood royalty.

On Sunday, Messi and co were watched by Prince Harry, who took up the opportunity to see the former Barcelona forward in the flesh.

Moreover, actors Leonardo DiCaprio, Will Ferrell, Tom Holland, Toby Maguire, Owen Wilson and Gerard Butler were also named on a 'notable attendees list'.

Meanwhile, musicians Liam Gallagher, Selena Gomez, Tyga, BReal and Nas were also in attendance at the 22,000-seater stadium.
