Valverde not sure how long Messi injury will keep him out

Barcelona are still no nearer to knowing when Lionel Messi can get his injury-hit campaign under way again.

The Argentina international has had a stop-start opening to the season and will definitely miss Saturday's La Liga visit to Getafe.

Messi missed the opening four games of the Liga season due to a calf injury before making his seasonal debut off the bench in the Champions League draw at Borussia Dortmund.

Barcelona are already five points behind Liga leaders Real Madrid after six matches of the new season but could close the gap this weekend with Madrid facing city rivals Atletico on Saturday.

Diego Simeone's side are currently third in the table, level on points with Real Sociedad having lost just one of their matches so far this term.
