Barcelona playmaker Lionel Messi is set to be out of action for around six weeks with a hamstring injury he suffered during Tuesday´s Champions League match with Celtic.

Messi limped out of the clash in tears after sustaining the problem during the first half of the 1-0 win, and tests on Wednesday have revealed the extent of the damage.

It is expected the Argentina international will be out for a month and a half, meaning he is likely to miss around six league games, plus the Copa del Rey semi-final second leg against Valencia and both of Barca´s Champions League quarter-final matches.
