Barcelona's Messi Injured, Misses El Clasico

Barcelona's Messi Injured, Misses El Clasico

Lionel Messi broke his right forearm on Saturday and will be sidelined for about three weeks, a major setback for him and Barcelona right before some important games.

Writhing in pain on the field, Messi was tended to by team trainers before being substituted off for Ousmane Dembele.

FC Barcelona moved to the top of the LaLiga table following a 4-2 win over Sevilla at the Camp Nou on Saturday evening.

Providing Rayo do not enjoy a significant upturn in the next two weeks, Barca again should be able to cope without Messi at Vallecas, where they ran out 5-1 winners on their last visit in March 2016.

Messi will miss playing Inter Milan in the Champions League on Wednesday, and El Clasico against Real Madrid next weekend.

Lionel Messi will miss El Clasico after being ruled out for three weeks with a fractured arm as Barcelona beat Sevilla 4-2 to go top of La Liga.

"Emotionally, we know when he is there, he gives us more confidence because he is the best in the world", Gerard Pique said. A handsome curling strike from Philippe Coutinho in the second minute was followed by a perfectly measured pass into the corner of the net from Barça's talismanic Argentine.

The return match against Inter in Italy then comes early next month, before tricky La Liga games against Real Betis and Atletico Madrid.

Marc-Andre ter Stegen twice produced remarkable double saves, then Suarez sealed victory when he sent Tomas Vaclik the wrong way from the penalty spot after he was felled by the goalkeeper.

Sevilla had an opportunity to halve the deficit in the closing stages of the first period when Pablo Sarabia met a low cross from Jesus Navas, but his effort was just wide.

Asked about rumours that Lopetegui could be sacked, Sergio Ramos replied: 'I always said that manager changes are never good for anyone.
