Lionel Messi missed Argentina training on Saturday as the team enjoyed a session at Real Madrid’s training base ahead of Tuesday’s friendly with Spain.
The Barcelona star was left out of Friday’s win over Italy because of a hamstring problem but said that he was optimistic of playing at the Wanda Metropolitano.
However, he sat out Saturday’s session and did regenerative work at the team hotel instead.

It remains to be seen if Messi will play on Tuesday although there obviously there’s no point whatsoever in risking him.
We should get an update before Tuesday’s game but at the moment Messi seems to be a real doubt for the game.
