Lionel Messi injury: Barcelona can cope without Argentina star - Gerard Pique

Neymar continues to be linked with a Real Madrid move

Ernesto Valverde's side were already 2-0 up thanks to goals from Philippe Coutinho (2) and Messi (12) when the Argentine fell on his arm and was taken to hospital.

After setting up Barca team-mate Philippe Coutinho and scoring himself, five-time Ballon d'Or victor Messi landed heavily on his right arm before leaving the field in the first half at Camp Nou.

With an worldwide break to come in November, the hope is for Messi to return when Atletico Madrid travel to the Camp Nou on November 24.

Barcelona returned to the top of LaLiga table, with a thrilling 4-2 win over Sevilla on Saturday night. He was clearly in agony and after 10 minutes of attempted treatment on the sidelines, he was replaced in the 26th minute by Ousmane Dembele. He'll miss three others, including the return game against Inter.

Barcelona confirmed after the game that the 31-year-old suffered a "fracture of the radial bone in his right arm" and is set to miss the Champions League tie against Inter Milan in midweek and the clash with Real Madrid next Sunday.

Lionel Messi, however, featured in both those games.

The Liga giants have announced that their star man will be out for approximately three weeks.

"It is always special for me to play against Sevilla, it was an important victory for us".

"We will try to make sure Leo's absence is noticed as little as possible", Rakitic said afterwards.

"Football matches are won by scoring goals and not according to who deserves to win", said Lopetegui, who is only three months into his stint with the club after being fired from Spain's national team.

Luis Suarez then fired wide of Vaclik's goal just before the hour mark, before Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen made excellent saves to keep out Andre Silva and Franco Vazquez in quick succession.

Real Madrid was four points behind Barcelona, in fifth place.
