Sampaoli added: "Messi suffered an adductor problem in the final training session so we gave him a precaution".

In Barcelona's colours, Messi has experienced nothing but success, winning eight La Liga titles and four Champions League crowns, while earning Fifa's Ballon d'Or award five times.

Without their talismanic star, Jorge Sampaoli's side showed they have strength in depth with a solid display capped by late goals from Banega and Manuel Lanzini.

Although Argentina is regarded as a contender at this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation and Italy is in rebuilding mode after failing to qualify for football's showcase event for the first time in 60 years, both teams seemed equally lacking in ideas and structure and overly dependent on their star players to rescue them during Friday night's game, reports EFE news agency.

"So we decided [to go] with Gio, who had trained with the other group, to take Leo's position so we didn't have to modify our plan, and beyond the individual level, we had some players with good development during the game, they respected the idea a lot".

It was an emotional evening for the Azzurri as they played for the first time since their defender Davide Astori died of a suspected cardiac arrest earlier this month.

Luigi Di Biagio remains a frontrunner to be named the new Italy coach on a permanent basis, according to the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) vice-commissioner Alessandro Costacurta, who says the decision will be finalised in May.

"The group must develop".

"It's a shame we didn't score a goal and I am disappointed, as we had played well and could've avoided conceding those two goals. We ask everyone to be patient".

"Italy are under construction and have many quality young players, so the next few years will be important to prepare for the Euros and World Cup", Biglia told RMC Sport.

The stay-aways weren't missing much, with chances at a premium until Buffon made an alert save to deny Nicolas Tagliafico.

Arsenal, Wenger reveals: "Giroud did not really want to leave..."
In terms of statistics, I am very attached to this, I remain stuck at one goal and three assists in five appearances. I knew there was going to be a wait. "It was completely justified and I'm very happy that he got a great reception".
