Luis Suarez scored the first two goals of his MLS career and provided the final pass on two more, Lionel Messi added two goals, and hosts Inter Miami romped to a 5-0 victory over Orlando City on Saturday.

Robert Taylor added the other goal for unbeaten Miami in what was easily their most lopsided result of the young season. Julian Gressel made the final pass on Suarez's two goals, both coming inside the opening 11 minutes.

Drake Callender made two saves to keep his second clean sheet for the Herons, who for the first time offered the kind of dominant performance that matched their status as oddsmakers' MLS Cup favorites.

Pedro Gallese failed to make a save for Orlando, who suffered their worst regular-season defeat since a 5-0 loss at New York City FC in late July 2021.

The Lions have now lost two games when Messi plays for the Herons by a seven-goal margin, having fallen 3-1 in the round-of-32 of the Leagues Cup on August 2 last year.
