Barcelona: Barcelona says Lionel Messi will miss Saturday's league match because of his hamstring injury but may be fit to play in the Champions League return leg against Paris Saint-Germain.

Messi was substituted at halftime of Tuesday's 2-2 draw against PSG in Paris, having scored the first goal of the game before injuring his right leg.

Barcelona says Messi will definitely miss Saturday's game against Mallorca "whilst his availability after that will depend on how the injury progresses."
