A statement published on the Catalan club's official website confirmed Argentinian striker Messi, who scored twice in a 7-0 victory over Levante last weekend before limping out of a midweek Super Cup meeting with Atletico Madrid, would remain at the Ciutat Esportiva to receive further treatment.
Sergio Roberto, Martin Montoya and Oier Olazabal are also injured but midfielder Adriano returns to contention after being suspended for Wednesday's first-leg encounter with Atleti, which ended 1-1 in Madrid.
