Messi injured his arm during Barca's La Liga match against Sevilla on Saturday.
Barcelona striker Lionel Messi will miss three weeks with a fracture of the radial bone in his right arm, the team announced Saturday.
Messi left Barca's La Liga match against Sevilla in the 26th minute on Saturday. The Argentinian soccer star appeared to be clutching his right elbow when he exited the game. He was examined on the sidelines before he was replaced by Ousmane Dembele.
Messi had scored for Barcelona just minutes before at the 12-minute mark. Barcelona was up two goals against a scoreless Sevilla when Messi was forced off the field.
In the end, Barça scored again in the second half and defeated Sevilla 4-2. Thanks to the result, Ernesto Valverde's side now leads La Liga with 18 points.
