Messi set to miss Spain clash

It looks like Lionel Messi will miss Spain vs Argentina

March 27, 2018 By Ali M.
It's bad news for anyone hoping to see La Pulga at the Wanda Metropolitano.

Spain vs Argentina is one of the biggest games of the ongoing international break. One big factor for that is Lionel Messi and his clash with La Roja, his Barcelona team-mates, and Real Madrid rivals on the international stage.

Unfortunately, fans hoping to catch La Pulga at the Wanda Metropolitano appear destined to be disappointed. The latest injury updates concerning the five-time Ballon d’Or winner tip him to sit this friendly as well.

After missing out on the 2-0 win over Italy at the Etihad Stadium, Leo appeared ready to start in Madrid. Speaking to the press, both the player and manager Jorge Sampaoli predicted he will be ready to feature.

According to Goal, sources in the Argentina camp have revealed that their captain will play no part in Tuesday’s game. The 30-year-old reportedly did not feel well in the morning of the game, having felt discomfort in his hamstring and right adductor, and has thus informed the coaching staff that he will sit this one out.

Marca, on the other hand, claims his setback occurred on Monday night. This is despite the fact that he trained on Sunday and Monday without a problem.

Messi will not want to risk aggravating his problem, with the final stages of Barcelona’s season and a World Cup right around the corner. This, however, will be a huge blow to Sampaoli who was keen to experiment on a starting eleven that would best complement the Blaugrana icon.
