Messi to Miss El Clasico With Broken Arm

Sabari Jagannathan  |  Tragedy  |  5 Months Ago

The Blaugrana magician was all set to light up the Clasico to continue with his scintillating form but in an unfortunate turn of events, he will sit out of the crucial encounter. The talismanic forward was his usual self in the opening minutes of top of the table clash between Sevilla and Barcelona. 


The 15 minute cameo was more than enough for the little magician who set up a goal for Coutinho and scored a brilliant goal of his own to put Barcelona in a comfortable position. Messi landed awkwardly on his arm following a collision and was shreiking on the gorund. 


The star forward has suffered a fractured in his radial bone of right arm and is expected to miss three to four weeks of action. The number 10 has kick started an important week of the season with a win for his side but will miss out key encounters against Real Madrid and Inter Milan in the next week. Real Madrid are in horrific form and the Argentine's absence will be a welcome gift for them.


 The football world will await for the little magician to be back on the field to score  more amazing goals. Until then, the scenes of the Greatest player of all time writhing in pain on the ground will be omnipresent for the Barca fans.
