Messi to Miss PSG's Match Against Montpellier

Lionel Messi has been ruled out of Paris St Germain’s match against Montpellier FC  on Saturday as he has not fully recovered from a bone bruise, the Ligue 1 club said on Friday.

Messi suffered a knock on his left knee, and an MRI scan earlier confirmed signs of a bone contusion. He missed PSG’s 2-1 victory at Metz on Wednesday.

He played no part in a dramatic 2-1 win over Metz in midweek but has seen a long spell on the sidelines ruled out and further assessment of his fitness will be made on Sunday ahead of next week’s Champions League home game against Manchester City FC.

PSG said midfielder Marco Verratti will return to training on Sunday while defender Sergio Ramos, who has yet to make his club debut, continues to train individually as he recovers from a calf injury.
