On Tuesday night, Inter Miami CF qualified for the Leagues Cup Final with a convincing 4-1 victory over the Philadelphia Union. The team's win is an impressive streak of five consecutive victories, which is in stark contrast to their struggles in the Major League.

In the semifinals, Inter Miami faced their toughest test yet, being matched up against the Philadelphia Union. However, the team remained unbeaten in Lionel Messi's first five matches with them, and the Argentine superstar was once again indispensable in the victory. Messi forcefully struck a shot from 30 yards away, past three defenders, scoring the team's second goal of the night.

Inter Miami started the game strongly, with Josef Martinez scoring in just the third minute of the match. In the 20th minute, Messi scored a long-range goal, doubling the lead, and Jordi Alba added a third in first-half injury time. Despite having numerous chances, the Union were unable to convert them and get back into the game.

In the second half, the Union fought hard and scored a goal through a strike from Sergio Santos. However, Inter Miami dashed any hopes of a comeback when Alba scored his second goal of the night, restoring a three-goal lead just two minutes after his first goal.

In the Leagues Cup Final, Inter Miami will face Nashville SC in Tennessee on Saturday. The team hopes to continue their impressive form and secure their first major trophy in just their second season in the league.
