Lionel Messi will undergo further analysis on a suspected thigh injury on Thursday, picked up during Barcelona’s Supercopa de Espana first leg.

The Argentine was pulled off at half-time of the contest at the Vicente Calderon against Atletico Madrid as a precaution, report the Catalan club.

Complaining of discomfort in his left thigh, the 26-year-old is set for tests on Thursday to determine the extent of any damage done.

Messi’s final stages of last term were disrupted in struggling with a hamstring injury.

Barca ended the night all square with Atleti, with Neymar equalising in the second half for the visitors after David Villa had put the hosts ahead.
