Paris Saint-Germain striker Lionel Messi Will miss helping the team in the Metz away game in the middle of the week Due to knee injury.

Messi was substituted in the second half of Paris Saint-Germain‘s 2-1 Ligue 1 win over Lyon on Sunday. The MRI scan showed signs of bruising in the bone in the left knee.

Paris Saint-Germain will send Messi for further testing in the next 48 hours for a more detailed assessment, but the Argentine will certainly be out of Ligue 1 games. Visit Metz on Wednesday for sure.

However, it is unclear if Messi will be available in the Ligue 1 game that PSG will host at home. Montpellier this saturday? While a big game in the UEFA Champions League group stage second leg, played at home against Manchester City, awaits next Tuesday.

Messi, 34, joined PSG after his contract with Barcelona expired last summer. By playing three games and still not scoring the first goal for the new agency.

Messi is yet to score so far in his three PSG appearances. PSG currently sit top of the Ligue 1 table on 18 points after six matches, five points ahead of second-placed Marseille. Marco Verratti is back in training while Sergio Ramos – who is still yet to make his PSG debut after moving from Real Madrid in the summer on a free transfer – is training individually as he steps up his recovery.
