Lionel Messi and Inter Miami return to the pitch on Wednesday evening, but this time they'll be playing in a new competition, the US Open Cup.
After going unbeaten and winning the Leagues Cup just a few days ago, Inter Miami find themselves in the semifinals of America's version of the FA Cup.
Their opponent is one of the best that Messi has faced in his time with Inter Miami thus far, FC Cincinnati.
Cincinnati are currently at the top of the MLS table, and by some margin. They have 15 wins, six draws and just three losses.
Here's where the Messi odds stand ahead of the Wednesday night US Open contest.
