Lionel Messi injury update

Two days ago at the match against Atletico Madrid Barcelona’s superstar Lionel Messi was injured in the 59 minute of the game.

After a lot of speculations about Messi’s injury, but the reality is that he injured the adductor in his right leg and according to the doctors his recovery time should be at least three matches, which mean that he will also miss Argentina’s international fixture.

At this moment Luis Enrique has to make the best possible choice in Barcelona’s attack by picking either Arda Turan or Rafinha. Arda Turan is more likely to be the first choice of the manager. The reason is that he was preferred in the attack during Neymar’s absence and he substituted Messi during the last match against Atletico.
