Lionel Messi - FC Barcelona

The Blaugrana beat the Yellow Submarine at El Madrigal yesterday thanks to a goal from young forward Sandro.

But after the match, Luis Enrique’s men revealed that Lionel Messi had pulled an abductor muscle in his right hip.

The Argentina international played the full 90 minutes, but will undergo tests today, with the extent of the injury likely to be learned on Tuesday.

There was also bad news for Munir El-Haddadi, who bruised his right thigh. He also, will see medical specialists today.
