Messi to miss Reims trip

Lionel Messi will miss Paris Saint-Germain’s trip to Reims with a calf problem, the club said on Friday.

The Argentine star was "fatigued" after PSG drew away to Benfica in the Champions League on Wednesday in Lisbon, said coach Christophe Galtier.

The 35-year-old Messi scored PSG's goal in a 1-1 draw and was replaced by Pablo Sarabia with nine minutes to go. “Leo will be rested. He will resume running on Sunday and will train on Monday before the return match against Benfica,” said Galtier.
