This time, Messi was also knocked out of the Champions League
Lionel Messi’s injury after Paulo Dybala is increasing Argentina’s fears before the World Cup. The PSG star left the field without playing 90 minutes against Benfica in the Champions League last week. Tired Messi himself was beckoning the coach to get up that day. Then it was announced before the match against Rennes in League One that Messi will not be able to play due to injury. Now it is known that Messi is not available due to injury despite the return leg against Benfica in the Champions League.
Messi scored a great goal in last week’s match at Benfica. When the match was tied at 1-1 that day, Messi was taken off in the 81st minute. After Messi was removed at the crucial moment of the match, there was concern among the fans.
Explaining the removal of Messi at the end of the match, PSG coach Galtier said, “A minute or two ago, Messi signaled to be transferred. He was feeling tired while running.’
Then, before the league match, Galtier said that Messi will not be able to play in the league match against Rennes. The PSG coach then said, ‘He asked to be substituted during the Champions League game (against Benfica). Messi is feeling a little problem with his leg muscles, but he will return to training on Sunday.
At that time, Messi’s injury was not serious and he said that Messi could be on the bench in the match against Rennes.
However, in that match against Rennes, Messi was not even on the bench at the end. PSG failed to win matches without Messi. The current league champions left the field with a goalless draw. PSG fans were looking to Messi to return to the winning streak.
Qatar World Cup is not far away. At this time, it is very natural for the Argentina captain not to take any kind of risk. The French club has the same position about him.
PSG is at the top with 26 points from 10 matches in League One. Marseille is second with 3 points less. These two teams will meet next Sunday in the league. Maybe he was not kept against Benfica to get 100% fit Messi in this important match.
Messi is in great form this season. In addition to scoring 8 goals in 13 matches in all competitions, he also scored 8 goals with his teammates.
PSG is at the top of Group H with 7 points from three matches in the Champions League. Benfica in two with equal points.
