Liga - Messi out of Barcelona's trip to Zaragoza

Lionel Messi will miss Barcelona's match with Real Zaragoza at La Romareda on Sunday evening.


The Argentine forward has been struggling with a hamstring injury, and despite playing in the club's Champions League draw with Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday, Tito Vilanova has decided to leave the record-breaker out of the squad.

Andres Iniesta and Jordi Alba will also be left at home for the game, whilst Sergio Busquets has a groin problem.

Barcelona squad to face Real Zaragoza: Valdés, Dani Alves, Piqué, Fàbregas, Xavi, Villa, Alexis, Thiago, Dos Santos, Bartra, Pedro, Montoya, Adriano, Abidal, Song, Tello, Oier, Sergi Roberto.
