Lionel Messi sits out for Inter Miami vs. Montreal with injury, Luis Suarez on bench

Lionel Messi did not appear in the matchday squad for Inter Miami’s MLS regular season game against CF Montreal in Fort Lauderdale on Sunday, while Luis Suarez was named amongst the substitutes.

Messi was listed as questionable in Miami’s player availability report ahead of the game after taking a knock on his left shin in a midweek CONCACAF Champions League draw at Nashville SC. Miami hosts Nashville in the second leg of that round of 16 series this Wednesday with the aggregate score standing at 2-2.

Luis Suarez began the match on the bench, with striker Leonardo Campana starting in his place.

Montreal took the lead in the 13th minute off a header from Francisco Alvarez after an extended one-on-one play between Mátias Cóccarco and Serhiy Kryvstov somehow did not result in a goal.
