With their Champions League clash against Inter Milan just around the corner, Barcelona have provided an injury update on Lionel Messi.
Messi had missed the first four games of the La Liga campaign with a separate calf injury, with Barcelona winning only two of those games.
Barcelona provided an injury update on Messi in a club statement that read, “First team player Leo Messi has a strain in the adductor of his left thigh. He is out and his recovery will dictate his availability.”
The Catalans face Getafe on Saturday desperate for points to catch Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Athletic Bilbao and Granada above them, while they host Serie A leaders Inter Milan next Wednesday.
