video: Messi Out For 7-8 Weeks With Knee Injury, Return Date Set For El-Clasico vS Real Madrid

Barcelona were rocked with fresh injury news today, as Leo Messi was forced out of the win over Las Palmas.

The Ballon D’Or-elect went down after a collision with Las Palmas’ Bigas in the first half, and one could have heard a pin drop inside the Camp Nou as Barcelona fans fretted over the well-being of their star player.

Having already lost Rafinha with an ACL injury, Barcelona were already treading water in terms of their squad depth, a situation that’s been exacerbated by their FIFA transfer ban, which prohibits them from using new signings Aleix Vidal or Arda Turan before January 4.

With Messi now out, both Munir and Sandro will be required to fill in as the third forward alongside Suarez and Neymar.

With the 7-8 week initial diagnosis, Messi’s return date looks set to be the 21 November Clasico against Real Madrid.

How they could do with Pedro back right now….
