Lionel Messi will miss Barcelona training on Friday as his girlfriend prepares to give birth to their first child.

Messi’s partner Antonella Roccuzzo was taken to hospital early on Friday, with the Argentina international joining her after his club granted him permission to miss training.

Head coach Tito Vilanova said he would leave it up to Messi to decide whether he would be available for Saturday’s Primera Division match against Celta Vigo if he were to become a father shortly before the game.

Barca sit joint first in La Liga with Atletico Madrid on 25 points from nine games played, and they will be looking to maintain their unbeaten status against the newly promoted side.
