Ahead of Chelsea’s Champions League second-leg clash with Barcelona at the Nou Camp, the Metro report that Lionel Messi has been ruled out of his side’s final fixture before the big game.

Messi, of course, needs no introduction. He’s the best player on the planet, and arguably the best ever to bless us with his presence on a football pitch. The prospect of him missing the game is, from a Chelsea standpoint, utterly mouthwatering.
However, the Metro claim that Messi has only not traveled with the Barcelona squad to Malaga due to personal reasons. There is no mention of any injury or anything that is likely to keep him out of the Chelsea game.
Having FINALLY found the back of the net against the Blues, the Argentine will likely be licking his lips at the prospect of knocking us out of the Champions League at the Camp Nou as redemption for 2012.
