PSG confirmed Messi's case on Tuesday, September 21.
After rubbing his knee and working out his leg on the field, Messi signaled to the bench that he was fine to continue.
However, Pochettino refused taking the risk as PSG had a busy schedule.
Messi reportedly spent Monday's training session receiving treatment, and PSG announced that he will miss the Wednesday trip to Metz, that is part of a busy stretch of matches.
Medical reports reveal that Messi has a bruised bone after he underwent an MRI on Tuesday.
Lionel Messi, ever since his debut for PSG has not scored a single goal or given any assist. He almost had a goal from a free kick but luck was not on his side.
