Messi Out For Month With Torn Muscle

Before I go into this, thanks for the anouncement Johnny and seriously what a bad news in this.

Lionel MESSI will be out of action for around a month after sufferring an injury in the Barca's away match Valencia. The Catalan giants announced on Saturday night that MESSI, 20, tore the biceps muscle in his left calf in Saturday's easy 3-0 win.

MESSI - who had set up Samuel Eto'o to score Barca's first two goals - had to limp off the Mestalla pitch after 40 minutes.

He will be out until around mid-January, and will therefore, together with fellow injury victim Thierry HENRY, miss next Sunday's big game at home to leaders Real Madrid. It is a real pitty for him considering the fact that in last season corresponding fixture, he scored a hat-trick.

MESSI is Barca's leading scorer this season, with eight goals in La Liga and four in the Champions League.
