Lionel Messi to face Newell’s Old Boys

Inter Miami and Lionel Messi will face Newell’s Old Boys for the first time in history at the close of the preseason. This match will be monumental for Messi, as he will be facing the club he loves, where he began training as a child and is a lifelong fan of.

After 20 years of professional career, the Argentine star will finally be crossing paths with his beloved Newell’s for the first time, adding another significant chapter to his history with the Rosario club. Messi’s connection with Newell’s goes back to 1994 when he signed for the children’s team at just six years old.

During his time with Newell’s, Messi played a total of 176 games and scored 234 goals, surpassing the average of one goal per game in each of the years he played with the club. In 2000, Messi left Newell’s to join Barcelona after proving himself in other clubs and leading La Maquina 87 at the regional level.

Despite leaving Newell’s for Barcelona, Messi’s affection for the club remained strong. Even after playing for Barcelona, Messi visited the Coloso as a fan in 2005 and played three friendlies at the Marcelo Bielsa Stadium. In 2020, Messi paid tribute to Diego Maradona by taking off his shirt after scoring a goal and revealing the Newell’s shirt he wore in 1993.

With Messi now enjoying his time at Inter Miami and in the final stages of his international career, the upcoming match promises to be emotional and historic. As the news of this encounter spreads, football fans from around the world eagerly anticipate the showdown between Lionel Messi and Newell’s Old Boys at the DRV PNK Stadium.
