Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi was not included in the squad to face Inter Milan in their Champions League group match on Tuesday.
Messi, 31, has not played since breaking a bone in his arm in a win over Sevilla on Oct. 20.

He was initially ruled out for three weeks but returned to training after 10 days and was said to be in contention to play against Italians.
Messi was among the travelling party that flew to Milan on Monday and trained at the San Siro with his teammates later in the day.
However, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner was not on Ernesto Valverde’s 18-man squad when it was released prior to the match.
