Messi picks up thigh knock

Lionel Messi will have tests on Sunday to determine the extent of his thigh injury picked up against Almeria this evening.

The Argentine goalscorer was subbed off in the first half of the match with the newly-promoted side on Saturday.

And the club have confirmed that the record-breaker will undergo tests later in the weekend to discover the extent of the knock.

Initially reports suggest it may not be too serious, but it remains to be seen whether Messi will be fit for the Champions League clash with Celtic on Tuesday.
