Barcelona without Lionel Messi in the champions league. A blessing or a curse?

The squad list for the players traveling to play against Dynamo Kiev was released by official barcelona yesterday, and the list witnessed just few changes. But a lot of fans has reiterated that the players left out of the squad are indispensable.

Lionel Messi and frenkie dejong were both left out of the squad to face Dynamo, and puig and Matheu were added. But the biggest fear now is, would Barcelona be able to perform well without their star man, Following their disappointing performance against Athletico madrid in Saturday.

The Coach said the reason for the exclusion of these players is because they need rest, and they need to get emotionally for for subsequent competitions they have ahead. Prior to this, fans believe this is not the time to rest because they need to qualify from the group as the group leaders, and exempting these players may cost them such wonderful opportunity.

Believably, Barcelona has nothing to loose just as they've been able to gather nine points from their past three games in the group stage. Yet, loosing a game to Dynamo wouldn't be good for the reputation of the club at this critical point.

What do you think about this. Should it be the exclusion of Messi or the team winning their games?
