Messi Does not Travel with Barcelona to Kiev for the Champions League Match

Barcelona will play their fourth match of the Champions League group stage tomorrow against Dinamo Kiev.

The biggest of all the surprises that has taken place today is that its main star, Lionel Messi, remains in Barcelona and will not play the match in the capital of Ukraine.

Koeman has been very clear on the subject: “We have decided not to bring Messi or De Jong because the Champions League meeting is more comfortable, due to the points we have, and both need a break”

Therefore there is nothing controversial in the fact that the Argentine does not travel with Barcelona. It is simply a technical decision for rest.

The same thing happens to a De Jong who this season is playing everything both with Barcelona and with the Dutch team.

In the group it has been his turn (and he will continue to play) playing central, due to losses.

A list of casualties to which on Saturday, after the match against Atlético (1-0), Piqué joined. The center-back had a serious knee sprain and will be out for several months.

Like Ansu Fati. In addition to the two Spanish internationals, Umtiti, Araújo, Busquets and Sergi Roberto are currently in the Barça infirmary. Koeman’s defense stays in the frame.
