Tests carried out on the first team player Leo Messi have confirmed that he has a fracture of the radial bone in his right arm. He will be out for approximately three weeks.
Despite 4-2 win against Sevilla at Camp Nou, it has not all been good news this Saturday. The Barça captain Leo Messi had to be substituted in the 26th minute after falling awkwardly in midfield and injuring his arm.
The Argentine had been decisive in the early stages of the win, providing an assist for Coutinho’s opener and then adding a second himself.
If the Barça number 10 is out for three weeks then he would miss the games against Inter Milan (24 October), Real Madrid (28 October), Cultural Leonesa (31 October), Rayo Vallecano (3 November), Inter Milan (6 November) and Betis (11 November). After these six games (three in the league, two in the Champions League and one in the Copa del Rey) there is a break for international matches so the Argentine could be fit to return on 24 November against Atlético Madrid.
