Leo Messi might be fit in time for Milan-Barcelona on October 22 after suffering a thigh injury.
The Blaugrana hero went off during last night’s win over Almeria and there were fears of a serious problem.
Tests this morning confirmed Messi will be out of action for two to three weeks with a small lesion to the femoral bicep in his right leg.
The Champions League clash at San Siro is in approximately three weeks, so it remains to be seen what condition he is in for that game.
Meanwhile, Messi will definitely miss next week’s Group H encounter with Celtic.
