Barcelona assistant coach Jordi Roura says Lionel Messi will almost certainly not be in contention to face Mallorca on Saturday although he may feature against Paris Saint-Germain.
Messi was withdrawn at half-time in Barcelona's 2-2 draw with PSG in the Champions League quarter-final first leg on Tuesday due to a hamstring problem.
The Argentinean has been receiving specialist treatment in the hope that he will be available for the return fixture at Camp Nou next Wednesday.
However, Roura remains cautious in his optimism about Messi’s chances of playing a role against PSG in their crucial European tie.
"It's difficult to say," Roura said when quizzed about Messi’s fitness. "We'll see what state he's in by Wednesday. For the game (today), logically, his chances are low."
With progression in the Champions League now a major focus for Barca, Roura maintains that his side will not be neglecting their domestic title challenge.
"Clearly, we have to try to find the balance," he said. "I've always said, and this is no exception, that La Liga is very important to us.
"We have to be focused on the match tomorrow."
