The team, led by Tata Martino, played without the presence of Lionel Messi, who was rested, and was defeated 5-2 by Atlanta United, playing away from home. Jordi Alba was also unavailable, while Sergio Busquets started the match. Inter Miami’s goals were scored by Campana, while Muyumba, Miller (with an own goal), Lennon, Giakoumakis, and Wolff found the net for Atlanta United.

Inter Miami’s last defeat occurred on July 15th against Saint Louis City. Since then, the team had a positive streak and clinched the Copa de las Ligas title undefeated. Upon their return to the MLS, they secured victories against RB New York, Los Angeles FC, and Sporting Kansas City, in addition to a draw against Nashville SC.
