Messi injury worry for Barca

Barcelona forward Lionel Messi has suffered a bruised knee injury in a Barcelona 0-0 draw with Benfica on Wednesday.

Lionel Messi was left out of the starting eleven by Titol Vilanova, as Barcelona have guaranteed themselves qualification to the last-16 with two matches to go. The 25 year-old Argentina international came on to replace Rafinha in the 58th minute of the game but forced to go off 40 minutes later.

Barcelona officials have confirmed that he suffered a bruised knee injury and that he will be assessed by medical staff today to determine the seriousness of the injury.
