Lionel Messi picked up a hamstring strain in Barcelona's 1-0 victory over Villarreal in La Liga on Sunday, the club said.

"He has pulled the hamstring of his right leg, it is a minor injury," Barca said in statement.

Forward Munir El Haddadi has a bruised calf and tests on both injuries will be carried out on Monday.

Messi is now likely to miss Argentina's friendly against Germany on Wednesday.
