Barcelona: Marc-Andre Ter Stegen Pulls Off Outstanding 'Double Double Save' To Thwart Sevilla (Video)

The 31-year-old landed awkwardly on his arm and a physio applied strapping before Ousmane Dembele came on as a replacement.

It was a ridiculous 15 minutes for Lionel MESSI against Sevilla as he scored, assisted and got injured.

In a statement, Barcelona said Messi will be out for approximately three weeks.

First diagnosis indicates that the damage will keep him out of the midweek Inter Milan match in the Champions League and it's touch and go regarding the Madrid encounter. "We know what he gives us and we know what he does to the opposition".

Philippe Coutinho gifted Barca an early lead with an impressive strike that sailed into the top corner, after some good work by Lionel Messi.

'We will try to make sure Leo's absence is noticed as little as possible, ' midfielder Ivan Rakitic added.

The Argentine is now nearly certain to miss Wednesday's Champions League clash with Inter Milan, and will also be a huge doubt for El Clasico next weekend.

They sent a tweet to Messi after Barcelona confirmed the extent of his injury.

Sevilla continued to probe and were rewarded when Sarabia's shot deflected off Clement Lenglet and flew beyond the stranded Ter Stegen, and the German then denied Sarabia a second before keeping out Ben Yedder on the rebound. Suarez buried the penalty.

Fans loudly jeered after Madrid reached 481 minutes without finding the net in the loss to Levante, which entered the game with the league's third-worst defense.

Real sit in fifth place with 14points.

Los Blancos set a new club-record goal drought when the match reached 56 minutes, surpassing their previous record of 465 minutes.

On that day, Julio Baptista scored the only goal of the game to collect all three points for Bernd Schuster's side.

Atletico Madrid, which drew at Villarreal 1-1, also was two back after nine matches.

Marcelo said: "We are with the coach until the death".
