LIONEL MESSI has had an unbelievable start at Inter Miami.

Well, it would be unbelievable if it was anyone but Messi.

The Argentinian superstar has racked up an incredible seven goals in four games in the Leagues Cup so far.

That includes a dramatic late free kick against Dallas in the previous round, which levelled the score at 4-4.

It also saw the 36-year-old become the club’s fourth-highest scorer of all time – after four appearances.

And should he keep up that goalscoring rate moving forward and back in the MLS, it could go some way to helping one Bet365 punter towards a staggering £22,000 pay out.

The bettor shared his bet slip on Twitter, showing a £50 double staked on a Lionel Messi x Inter Miami double.

The first part involves Inter Miami winning The Leagues Cup which was a 10/1 shot when placed.

David Beckham’s side are now the 2/1 favourites having reached the quarter final stage.

The second part looked a tall order, with Messi to finish as MLS Top Goalscorer at huge 40/1 odds.

When the league resumes, he’ll start 13 goals behind Hany Mukhtar of Nashville with 12 games to go.

Given his blistering start, he’s projected to hit 21 goals at the same scoring rate he’s started, which would certainly put him in the mix.

And the bookmaker agrees, slashing his odds to 15/4 second favourite BEFORE he’s kicked a ball in the competition.

That’s left the punter with a dilemma after being offered a £605 cash out already.
