• Chronicle: There is no peace for Messi

Leo Messi has fallen again. After 7.30 pm on Wednesday, and after a day of tense silence, Barca offered the medical part. «Suffers an elongation in the adductor of the left leg. It is low and its evolution will mark its availability » . And that's it. Not one more detail of the new injury he has in vilo to the club and the fans. The start of the season of his star is like to be worried, and in that phrase - "his evolution will mark his availability" - he hides at least a week without being able to play, because an elongation is "the abnormal stretching of a muscle" . It is more than a contracture and less than a fiber break.

Messi himself feared the worst on Tuesday. It seemed that he only had to adjust his boot again after a clash with an opponent, but his gestures indicated otherwise. According to some images issued by El Golazo de Gol , he repeated twice the phrase "I can't break!" While he was being treated by doctors. In that week that will be low is next Saturday's game against Getafe and, above all, next Wednesday against Inter Milan in the Champions League . After the draw in Dortmund, a bad result there would put the ugly things.

So the big question right now is to know if the eight days between Tuesday and that appointment against Inter will be enough to recover. Because then, the following Sunday, it is Sevilla who visits the Camp Nou. There, if nothing goes wrong, it is very likely that he can play.

Just a starting match

The Argentine had his first minutes in the goalless draw against Borussia, after a sore injury to his right leg left KO as soon as he returned to training on August 5. Facing Villarreal, it was just released as a starter , after also having a few minutes in the League in the defeat against Granada last weekend.

This muscular injury is the fourteenth of this type that suffers in the ranks of Barça. The other five are ligamentous and there are even two fractures: one in the left foot, against Zaragoza in the League match in November 2006, and another in the right arm, suffered in the League match against Sevilla on 20 October of last year. The team trained on Wednesday afternoon and then all the players left for dinner to try to make pineapple.
