Leo Messi did not train today with his mates and on Wednesday he won't play the Copa del Rey match against Valencia, according to Catalunya Radio. The Argentine player has passed a review due to a renal problem and he was found some stones. The new stones have not generated discomfort, and no colic, since it is a minor problem, but doctors suggested him to rest.

In addition, the newspaper Sport published that tomorrow Messi will undergo a small operation to finally solve this problem.

Later the club confirmed the problems with an statement, explaining he will undergo some tests between this Monday and Tuesday, and that he will join the team on Wednesday.

Leo Messi will rest in a match with no story, since Barcelona won the first leg 7-0 and won't have problems to qualify for the Copa del Rey final.
