Inter Miami – Monterrey: schedule and where to watch Messi’s game live in Concacaf

Inter Miami landed this Tuesday in Monterrey, Nuevo León, to play the second leg of the quarterfinals of the Concacaf Champions League. The Florida team has arrived in the country with its best footballers: the Argentine star Lionel Messi – who missed the first leg due to a muscle injury -, the forward Luis Suárez, the winger Jordi Alba and the midfielder Sergio Busquets. Inter Miami dreams of a comeback at the BBVA Stadium, which will put them in the semifinals of the competition.

The Monterrey team took the victory two goals to one at the DRV PNK Stadium, in the American city. At minute 18 of the first half, Inter Miami defender Tomás Avilés put the American team ahead on a corner kick. In the second half, Inter midfielder David Ruiz was sent off for a double yellow. Messi’s team was left with one less man to play the rest of the match. The comeback of the team from northern Mexico would be inevitable: in the 68th minute, and after a save by the Florida goalkeeper, Argentine Maximiliano Meza scored the tying goal. In the 88th minute and with a long-distance goal, Jorge Rodríguez put the final blow on the scoreboard. A 2 to 1 that leaves the Miami team alive for the return leg in Nuevo León. From the stands, David Beckham, the owner and current president of Inter, and Lionel Messi witnessed the Mexican team’s comeback.

When and at what time is the second leg of Inter Miami – Monterrey in the Concacaf quarterfinals?

The second leg of Inter Miami – Monterrey begins next Wednesday, April 10 at 8:30 p.m. (Central Mexico time). The game is played at the BBVA Stadium, home of the 2026 World Cup with a capacity of up to 53,500 attendees. The lineups are made official minutes before the game starts; However, Gerardo ‘Tata’ Martino is expected to include Messi as a starter, after the world champion soccer player added minutes and participated with a score in the two-goal tie between Inter Miami and Colorado, in Major League Soccer (MLS) this weekend.

What does Lionel Messi’s team need to advance to the next round of Concacaf?

To qualify for the semifinals, Monterrey can win, draw or even lose 1-0. The away goal rule favors the Striped team, led by Fernando ‘Tano’ Ortiz. Meanwhile, Messi’s team needs to win by two goals difference to qualify. If Inter Miami wins 2 to 1, the match would go to extra time and if the score stands, the pass would be decided on penalties.
