Inter Miami’s win against Real Salt Lake was against all odds. For a team that managed just one win in pre-season, they put up quite a convincing performance. However, LA Galaxy have shown that the Herons are still not the complete article yet. In the high-octane clash, the Los Angeles side held Miami to a draw, courtesy of a goal from Dejan Joveljic in the 75th minute. Despite dominating 64% of the possession and creating clear-cut chances, the Herons could not capitalize. With Luis Suarez, in particular, being quite wasteful. And fans are not happy.

Lionel Messi’s effort in the 92nd minute prevented Inter Miami from losing all 3 points. But Luis Suarez, who had a lively MLS debut, had a night to forget, with questions raised about his fitness.
