Messi suffers bruised knee
Barcelona have confirmed that Leo Messi suffered a bruised knee in last night's game with Benfica.
Messi had to be carried off and the fear was that he would have an injury which would prevent him from breaking Gerd Muller's all time record for goals in a calendar year, which the Argentine is one short of.
"Tests carried out tonight have confirmed that the player has a bruising of the bone on the outside of the left knee," Barcelona said in a statement.
"The rate of his recovery will determine whether he will be available for the next game, on Sunday against Real Betis."
