Despite the loss, Pizarro showed his playmaking ability and creativity against a stacked LAFC midfield. He started the match off a little slow, but eventually grew into the game, completing 79% of his passes and having four shots on target.
He moved the ball nicely and was the main focus of most of Inter Miami’s counter-attacks. If Paul McDonough can bring in a center-forward that can put away Pizarro’s assists, we could see Miami take the next step offensively.
Pizarro, for all intents and purposes, is Miami’s marquee signing. And based on the positive signs he showed in his first outing in MLS, with a little help here and there, he might just live up to the hype, which really is saying something.
