Why Lionel Messi Should Not Play Against Real Betis

BR - Lionel Messi gave the world of football a massive scare midweek when he came up injured against Benfica. The Barcelona star had to be carted off the field as the Camp Nou grew very silent.

The club was obviously worried, along with every Barcelona fan. Messi has rarely been injured and at times seems to be indestructible. But, when the Argentine hits the pitch and stays down, it is worrying. (Barcelona, Lionel Andrés Messi, Spanish Primera Division)
