Neymar is expected to step in to fill the void.
"I don't feel extra pressure because Messi's out. I hope he recovers as soon as possible and returns to help the team," Messi told BeinSport.
The Brazilian also discussed how he is settling in at Barcelona.
"It's everything I'd hoped for; it's a dream come true, thank God. Dani Alves has helped me more than anyone and he's one of the people who did most to convince me to come to Barcelona. Dani has helped me since my arrival."
