Messi’s son draws Juventus logo during Barcelona’s Champions League encounter against Italian side Inter Milan on Wednesday.
Barcelona cruised to a 2-0 victory over Inter Milan in the Champions League. Rafinha and Jordi Alba scored across the two halves to ensure three points for Barcelona.
The victory for Ernesto Valverde’s side was significant as Barcelona were playing without their star player, Lionel Messi. The Argentine star was forced off with an injury during the game against Sevilla on Sunday last week.
Lionel Messi is ruled out for three weeks, according to the official club statement.
However, Messi was in attendance as Barcelona took on Inter Milan in the Champions League clash. A new video has surfaced where Messi’s son, Thiago Messi, is seen showing his father a Juventus logo, which he drew himself.

The Barcelona star watched the game from the stands with his son Thiago. In a video which was recently posted on Twitter, Thiago Messi showed his father a Juventus logo, which he presumably drew himself.
This weekend will be the first El Clasico to not feature either Cristiano or Messi since December 2007. Almost 11 years.
I’m just not as excited about it. Are you? If so, who do you think will light it up? pic.twitter.com/n6skPWLpDe

Messi’s long-time rival Cristiano Ronaldo joined Juventus this summer from Real Madrid. The Italian champions beat Manchester United in another Champions League game earlier this week.

Ronaldo’s departure to Juventus and Lionel Messi’s injury against Sevilla means that this week’s El Clasico would be the first since 2007 to not feature either of the two players.
Barcelona will host the first El Clasico of the season. Both the managers are under scrutiny for lack of performances, as both the sides have had an underwhelming starts to their season.
Barcelona are currently leaders of the La Liga, whilst Madrid lie at a lowly 7th position after nine games. With Messi injured and Madrid’s inconsistent form, this should be a tough game to predict.

Barcelona might be first in the league, but they have only scored 18 points from their first 9 games. Ernesto Valverde’s side ended their dismal four-game winless run in the league last week.

Real Madrid, meanwhile, are 7th in the table. Julen Lopetegui’s side created an unwanted record for the longest goalless run in the history of the club, which was finally broken by Marcelo last weekend.
The Los Blancos are also struggling with injury crisis as Dani Carvajal has failed to recover for the game. However, Marcelo is expected to be in contention to play against Barcelona.
