Messi strained his right calf muscle during training on Monday. An echography test on Tuesday morning has revealed that he has suffered intramuscular bruising and FC Barcelona’s Medical Services have stated that his availability for future matches depends on how his injury progresses. He will have two physiotherapy sessions today at the Ciutat Esportiva. Without Messi, the squad that travels to Hamburg is reduced to 21 players.
