Lionel Messi will be out for up to eight weeks with knee ligament damage suffered as Barcelona beat Las Palmas 2-1 Saturday. Barca's troubles were eased, though, as Real Madrid remain a point behind the Catalans after being held 0-0 at home by 10-man Malaga.Messi, 28, was injured as he tried to turn the ball home after taking a wonderful first touch inside the area.Barca made sure of a return to winning ways thanks to a wonderful team move seven minutes after the break as Neymar picked out Munir and his cross was left by Sergio Busquets for Suarez to fire into the top corner.Barca were then forced to see out a nervous last few minutes as Las Palmas took advantage of an error from Javier Mascherano to pull a goal back as Viera's shot deflected in off Gerard Pique.Captain Weligton deflected a goalbound header from Ronaldo wide and cleared off the line when Isco had squeezed a shot past Kameni.
