MONTREAL – Messi Mania has arrived in Canada.

Lionel Messi is part of Inter Miami CF’s starting 11 for Saturday’s Major League Soccer match against CF Montreal at Stade Saputo.

Messi – considered by many as the best player ever – is joined by fellow former FC Barcelona stars Luis Suarez and Sergio Busquets in the starting lineup.

The 36-year-old Messi enters the match with 10 goals and 12 assists in eight league games after a record-setting one-goal, five-assist showing in a 6-2 win over New York Red Bulls last week.

Miami (7-2-3) leads the league standings with 24 points.

Meanwhile, Montreal (3-4-3) is 11th in the Eastern Conference with 12.
