Messi to miss Leipzig clash due to hamstring discomfort

Paris, Nov 2 (EFE).- Argentine star Lionel Messi has been ruled out of Paris Saint-Germain’s Champions League clash against Leipzig due to muscle discomfort.

Announcing the squad for Wednesday’s away game against the German club, PSG said that Messi was struggling with a left hamstring and knee issues.

The Argentine was taken off at half-time during PSG’s Ligue 1 clash with Lille on Friday, which the Parisian side went on to win 2-1.

French star Kylian Mbappe, meanwhile, returned to the roster, having missed the Lille game due to an ENT infection.

Spanish defender Sergio Ramos, who has yet to make his PSG debut amid speculation about an early end to his contract, signed just four months ago, remains on the sidelines.

PSG are on top of Group A with seven points from three games, including a 1-1 draw against Club Brugge, a 2-0 win over Manchester City and 3-2 victory over last-placed Leipzig. EFE
