Lionel Messi once again led Inter Miami, Thursday, to another final as the team defeated FC Cincinnati 5-4 by penalty in the semi-final of the US Open Cup.

Both teams went to penalties after a 3-3 draw in full-time and extra time.

Messi's team returned to the game after a 2-0 defeat as the Argentinian icon made two successful assists to help the team end the game in a 3-3 draw. 

The goals were scored by Leonardo Campana (68, 90+ 7,) and Josef Martinez (93.)

It was the first time Messi didn't manage to score for Miami, but he scored the winning penalty for his team.

It was the first time for Inter Maimi to reach the final of the most prestigious football competition in the US, which dates back to 1913.

Inter Miami will host face Houston Dynamo on September 27 in the final of the tournament.
