Messi could return against PSG

Barcelona forward Lionel Messi will miss this weekend's La Liga contest against Mallorca, but he could return to action next week in the Champions League against PSG.

The Argentina international suffered a slight hamstring injury in Barca's 2-2 draw with PSG in Paris on Tuesday in the first leg of their Champions League quarterfinal.

Messi was substituted at halftime for Cesc Fabregas, and the club has revealed that he may be available for next Wednesday's clash at the Camp Nou against the French outfit.

The news was not as positive for Barca regarding defender Javier Mascherano, who is expected to miss the next 6-8 weeks after rupturing knee ligaments on Tuesday.
