Paris Saint-Germain have made a big decision on Lionel Messi ahead of their Coupe de France game on Monday night.
The 35-year-old returned to duty for the Ligue 1 champions about two weeks ago following his 2022 FIFA World Cup triumph with Argentina.
Messi starred in their 2-0 league win over Angers on 11 January, but struggled to make an impact as PSG suffered a surprise 1-0 defeat to Rennes last week Sunday.
Manager Christophe Galtier has now decided to not call upon the seven-time Ballon d'Or winner for their French cup encounter against Pays de Cassel, a sixth division side, on Monday night.
Kylian Mbappe and Neymar, however, were named in PSG's squad.
Messi has made 21 appearances in all competitions for PSG so far this season, contributing to an impressive 27 goals.
