Paris Saint-Germain will be playing in the UEFA Champions League against RB Leipzig on Wednesday night. However, following the departure of Lionel Messi from the match against Lille OSC, there are questions regarding his status for this upcoming match.
According to TYC Sports (via Culture PSG), the 34-year-old will still undergo an MRI to determine the exact nature of his injury. A video focusing on Messi shows the Argentine forward grabbing his left hamstring before exiting the game.
Manager Mauricio Pochettino stated postgame that the reason for Messi leaving the game was more of a precaution, and he hopes to have the forward for their upcoming match against the German side.
Messi played a significant role in PSG’s win over Leipzig a couple of weeks ago, with him scoring a brace to help the Ligue 1 club get out of a 2-1 deficit that they found themselves early in the second half.
