Messi had to be substituted midway through the first half of his side's 4-2 win at home to Sevilla after providing an assist and scoring a goal, before falling badly on his arm.

Barcelona ended its slump and regained the Spanish league lead but there was little to celebrate as Lionel Messi broke his right forearm and will be sidelined for three weeks.

Messi doubled the advantage, racing clear on the counter-attack before jinking inside and curling into the bottom corner with his left foot.

Barca will hope the injury to their star player is not serious, particularly with a handful of hard fixtures coming up.

The Argentine star will miss at least six games, the most important ones are against Internazionale of Milan in the Champions League and the "Clasico" against Barcelona's heated rivals Real Madrid in "La Liga".

Icardi also discussed his future, having been linked with Champions League holders Real Madrid and Chelsea.

Messi was taken to the clinic at Barcelona's training ground and the club are hopeful that the injury was nothing more than a "hyper-extension" around his right elbow.

It will be interesting to see how Barcelona fare without him given just how instrumental he is.

Time will tell if they've got enough quality and depth in the squad to cope, or if it's positive for Barca who can certainly take advantage even without Messi.

Ivan Rakitic produced superb volley with two minutes remaining and there was still time for Luis Muriel to curl in Sevilla's second in the first minute of stoppage time. It could be the outcome in the two ties between them that might well decide which one goes through to the continental competition's next round as group winners and which will end up as runners-up.

Lopetegui, only three months into his stint with Real Madrid, defended himself against the critics. We attacked a lot and looked unsafe.

Asked about his future, Lopetegui said: "It is the last thing I am thinking about".
