Messi left out of PSG squad to face Leipzig due to hamstring & knee injuries

 Mauricio Pochettino will be without the six-time Ballon d'Or winner when his side resume their Champions League campaign in midweek

Lionel Messi has been left out of Paris Saint-Germain's squad to face RB Leipzig due to a couple of fresh injury complaints.

Messi has not been named in Mauricio Pochettino's 21-man squad for Wednesday's Champions League group-stage clash, having come off early in their last Ligue 1 outing against Lille.

Pochettino explained that the Argentine superstar had picked up a knock after the 2-1 victory, and PSG have now confirmed that he is struggling with two separate issues that have made him unavailable for selection.
