Messi has been an injury doubt for the top flight visit to the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan stadium after sitting out Argentina’s two friendlies during the international break.

The 30-year-old watched the 2-0 win over Italy and 6-1 hammering at the hands of Spain from the stands after complaining of ‘muscle soreness’.

Barcelona doctor Ricard Pruma gave Messi the once over yesterday on his return to the club.

Team-mates Marc-Andre Ter Stegen and Gerard Pique were also checked out before all being given the all-clear.
