Lionel Messi left out of Barcelona’s squad to face Zaragoza

goal :    Lionel Messi has been left out Barcelona’s squad to face Zaragoza on Sunday evening, as have Andres Iniesta, Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba.

The Argentine, who has won the Ballon d’Or four times in a row, missed last weekend’s 5-0 thrashing of Mallorca due to a hamstring problem picked up in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final at Paris Saint-Germain earlier in the week.

Missing that match at Camp Nou ended Messi’s record-breaking 19-game scoring streak in La Liga and he will once again be absent against the relegation candidates this weekend.
