Lionel Messi left scarred after Barcelona’s clash with Sevilla

Is this why he was so mad with Diego Carlos?

Lionel Messi was back in training on Sunday and it was not hard to see a little bit of damage to his right leg after Friday’s 0-0 draw with Sevilla.

The Barcelona captain was hacked down by Diego Carlos during the game and reacted angrily to the challenge, jumping up and giving the center-back a push.

There’s been a bit of debate about the challenge and how much contact Carlos made, but it certainly seems like he did get quite a bit of Messi.

Barcelona are due to train again on Monday morning ahead of their next game on Tuesday against Athletic.

They will again be without Frenkie de Jong and Sergi Roberto for the match but otherwise have no new injury problems.
