Messi Was Ruled out for the Classic between Barcelona and EspanyolLionel Messi was today ruled out of Saturday's match between Barcelona and Espanyol in the Spanish League football because of his ankle injury suffered during the last victory against Dynamo Kiev.

Barca confirmed in its official website that he "has a Grade II sprain of his right ankle and is low for Saturday's game.

The striker suffered the problem in his ankle on the last play of the game last night when Barca beat Dynamo Kiev 2-1, with an own goal from a free kick from Rosario.

The Catalan club's medical staff was performed the tests on the affected leg and determined that the winner of the Ballon de Oro 2009 will remain in recovery, at least for the next four days.

In addition, the club reported that the evolution of the injury "will mark the availability of Messi" for the semifinals of Club World Cup, in which Barcelona will face the winner Wednesday of the match between Atlante of Mexico and the Auckland City by New Zealand.
