Leo Messi is 4/1 to be suspended from playing against Brazil

Wednesday night sees Argentina head to Ecuador in their latest match in the 2010 World Cup qualifiers, and the early team news ahead of the match is that Diego Maradona will field Leo Messi, even though the Barcelona forward is one booking away from a suspension.

Should the Argentine pocket-dynamo indeed pick up a yellow card, Messi will be banned from playing against Brazil who are the Argies next opponents in three months time.

Messi is 4/1 to pick up a booking against Ecuador, and 50/1 to be sent off.
