Barcelona are still going to be without Lionel Messi for quite a while. Missing the star is always going to affect the team, but there is hope without him.
The Catalans showed that they can make due without Messi. Not only did they beat Granada without him, but they absolutely dominated the match.
Barcelona are in no way better without Messi—that is wild to even consider. However, they are still a world class club that can win a lot of games even without the Argentine in the line-up.
For the next few weeks Barcelona are going to be just fine without Messi. They will win games and continue to show their best. It is the second half of the season that they need Messi to be healthy.
This time off will be good for everyone. Messi can rest and come back in his best form while other stars will have their times to shine. Injuries are never good things, but Barcelona can benefit from this predicament.
Expect Barcelona to survive without problems for the next few weeks. They will be just fine. But everyone is still waiting for the day when Messi is back on the pitch.
