Barcelona star Lionel Messi is expected to be sidelined for three weeks after rupturing an adductor muscle in his right leg in his side's 1-1 draw with Atletico Madrid.

The Argentinian maestro appeared to suffer the injury after tussling for possession with Atletico defender Diego Godin, and was replaced by Arda Turan after 58 minutes.

Confirming the time-frame of Messi's injury via twitter, manager Luis Enrique said: "Losing Messi is a loss to us and a loss to football. With Leo we are stronger, but we are still strong without him."
