Messi came off the field at the 74 minute mark in his home debut against Lyon on Sunday. PSG later released a statement announcing the injury and that he would undergo an MRI.

“Lionel Messi, following the knock received on his left knee, has undergone an MRI this morning which confirms the signs of bone contusion, a new assessment will be made in 48 hours.”

ESPN is reporting Messi is likely to also miss Saturday’s match against Montpellier. The forward has yet to notch a goal or assist in his first four matches since the transfer from Barcelona.
