Lionel Messi withdraws from Barcelona squad after birth of third child

Lionel Messi withdraws from Barcelona squad after birth of third child

Barcelona said before the match that Messi would not travel with the team due to "personal reasons". Thank God everything went flawless.

And Messi posted a picture of his third child clutching his finger with his tiny hand.

He then announced in February that a third son would be called Ciro, with Mateo and Thiago set to get a little brother. He and Mom are very well.

Dembele, whose adaptation to Barcelona had been hampered by injuries, had his best performance since leaving Borussia Dortmund for the Catalan club. We are super happy!

French President Emmanuel Macron calls on President Kovind
Analysts had already predicted Macron pitching France as India's gateway to Europe after UK's exit from the European Union. The bilateral trade between India and France from April 2016 to March 2017 reached 10.95 billion dollars.

But Spanish reporter Alfredo Martinez has revealed Messi's absence is due to his wife Antonella giving birth overnight. He has started 26 of Barca's 27 games, while he came off the bench against Espanyol on February 4.

Barca are still unbeaten in the league and lead the standings with 72 points, 11 clear of Atletico Madrid who host Celta Vigo on Monday (AEST).

There is a chance Barcelona leaves some of its stars on the bench against Malaga as Wednesday's second leg of the round of 16 Champions League tie with Chelsea looms large.
