Messi injury assessed today

Barcelona will learn later today how long they will be without striker Lionel Messi, after the Argentine was injured against Paris Saint-Germain.

Messi pulled up with five minutes to go in the first half of Barca’s 2-2 Champions League quarter-final first leg draw with PSG.

Struggling with a suspected hamstring strain, tests will be carried out on Wednesday to determine the extent of any damage done, which forced him to watch the second half of yesterday’s game from the sidelines.

Initial reports suggest that the 25-year-old could miss as much as the next three weeks of action, whilst most outlets assume he is all but out of next week’s return leg against PSG at the Camp Nou.
