Lionel Messi will miss Wednesday’s Champions League clash with RB Leipzig due to injury, Paris Saint Germain announced on Tuesday.
The 34-year-old six-time Ballon d’Or winner has a left hamstring problem and a painful knee.
PSG’s statement said the four-time Champions League winner was suffering from “a pain in his hamstring in his left thigh and a painful knee due to bruising.”
Messi may also be a doubt for Saturday’s Ligue 1 clash between table-topper PSG and struggler Bordeaux.
PSG will also be missing influential midfielder Marco Verratti — who has a hip injury — but welcomes back Kylian Mbappe who missed the match against Lille. PSG is on top of its group with seven points from three matches.
Wednesday’s fixtures: Real Madrid vs Shakhtar; AC Milan vs Porto (both 11.15 p.m.); Sporting vs Besiktas; Dortmund vs Ajax; Sheriff vs Inter Milan; Liverpool vs Atletico; Manchester City vs Brugge; Leipzig vs PSG (all 1.30 a.m.).
