Messi Could Miss Some Barcelona Matches
In the next international break, scheduled from 5th October, the South American 2022 World Cup qualifiers start.
Argentina could call up Messi, which would force the Argentine to quarantine before leaving. He would miss the start of La Liga with Barca.
The next international break could take its toll on Barcelona but in advance. If Messi is called up by Argentina, he would have to quarantine before, so he would miss the first La Liga matches with Barca.
Depending on the country, ‘Mundo Deportivo’ informs, the normal thing will be that players have to quarantine before the camp. This would happen with the Argentines that play in Europe, such as Messi.
Barca’s Argentine star would be forced to quarantine 15 days before being able to join up with his country. This means he would have to leave Barcelona two weeks before expected. He would miss the matches against Villarreal, Celta, and Sevilla.
Argentina will face Ecuador in the first matchday and will travel to Bolivia in the second.
