No one has been able to prevent Lionel Messi from scoring thus far in North America. The attempts by Cruz Azul, Atlanta United, and Orlando City were all unsuccessful. The finest player in the world has adapted to his new team without much difficulty, requiring nothing in the way of an adjustment period, which is typical for newcomers to Major League Soccer.  Teams will need to catch up and figure out a way to stop him, so we’ll see how long it takes.

With 12 regular games left, he will look to move his team from last place in the MLS’s Eastern Conference and towards a potential playoff slot after the Leagues Cup competition is through. The club advanced to the final four of the U.S. Open Cup competition prior to Messi’s arrival, therefore a semifinal game in that competition will also be played in August. On September 27 will be the Open Cup final, if they defeat FC Cincinnati.
