Barca will be without Leo on Sunday.
- Barcelona's appeal on Lionel Messi's 2-game ban has been rejected by the Spanish FA's Competition Committee, RAC1's Gerard Romero reports.
- Thus, the Argentine, who sat out Thursday's win over Cornella in the Spanish Cup, won't be available for selection in Sunday's La Liga encounter at Elche.
- The 33-year-old was banned for two matches after receiving a red card in Barca's loss to Athletic Bilbao in the Spanish Super Cup final last weekend.
