A tough season just got increasingly tougher for Lionel Messi, as the prolific forward is set to miss the next two months with a leg injury according to The Globe and Mail.

Messi suffered a muscle tear in his left hamstring and Fabregas sustained ligament damage to his right knee during Barca’s 4-1 La Liga win at Real Betis on Sunday, Barca said in a statement on their website.

Well it goes without saying that this is a major blow for Barcelona, as they’ve struggled in the past when Messi has been sidelined. However, with Neymar now in the picture, maybe he can help steady the ship in the meantime.
