FC Barcelona announced on Saturday that star Lionel Messi will not travel with the squad to face Malaga in a La Liga match later in the day due to the birth of his third child.

The club's "other" South American superstars picked up the slack and bagged a goal each, assisted by some guys named Jordi Alba and Ousmane Dembele, respectively, not long before Malaga were reduced to 10 men after 30 minutes.

Leo Messi missed the trip to the La Rosaleda Stadium after becoming a father for the third time on Friday night, but his inspirational presence was not needed against the bottom side of the table with just 13 points from 28 matches, reports Xinhua news agency.

Any Chelsea fans hoping that Messi will be missing for their Champions League clash this week are sadly out of luck.

That result put Barca, who are unbeaten in La Liga this campaign, eight points clear. "Now that we've won we can think about the next game".

Messi and his wife Antonella Roccuzzo are parents to Thiago, aged five and Mateo, aged two.
