Lionel Messi injured during Atletico clash, out for three weeks

 Lionel Messi will not play competitive football for Barcelona for the next three weeks after getting a groin injury in the draw with La liga rival club Atletico Madrid on Wednesday night. He went off on 59 minutes on Wednesday after a Diego Godin tackle.

The Argentina captain was forced to miss Argentina's World Cup 2018 qualifier against Venezuela earlier this month with a groin injury, but has played in all five La Liga games this season. The Argentine could return for Barca's Champions League tie with Manchester City on 19 October.
