Messi has scored multiple goals in more than one match but has yet to score more than two goals in a single game for Inter Miami.

Inter Miami vs. Nashville SC odds

Here are the odds for Saturday’s Leagues Cup final between Inter Miami and Nashville SC. Note that, for sportsbook purposes, soccer games that are tied at the end of regulation count as draws, and only the draw bet would cash at that point. A bet on a team to win the Leagues Cup title would cover a victory in either regulation or extra time and penalty kicks. “BTTS” is short for both teams to score.

Inter Miami vs. Nashville SC preview

Inter Miami notched another blowout win in the semifinals, earning a 4-1 victory over Philadelphia Union in a match that was essentially over by halftime. Messi scored a brilliant goal from well outside the box in the first 20 minutes, and Inter Miami proved that even a hostile crowd on its opponent’s turf couldn’t slow down such a potent offense.

Nashville SC punched a ticket to the finals with a 2-0 victory over Mexico’s Monterrey squad on Tuesday. So far in this tournament, Nashville has gotten a lot of help from its own star from abroad, Sam Surridge, who has scored in three straight matches since joining the team from Nottingham Forest of the English Premier League. Stopping Messi — or at least containing him — will be a primary focus of the Nashville defense. However, the team also faces a challenge in goal production, as its offense has been nowhere near as explosive as Inter Miami’s in this tournament.
