Lionel Messi returns to training for Barcelona after hamstring strain

La Liga Lionel Messi Back In Barcelona Training

After having missed Argentina's last two worldwide friendlies against Italy and Spain recently, Messi has returned to training for Barcelona recently.

Messi missed both of Argentina's friendlies during the global break with a minor hamstring injury.

Both Gerard Pique (Spain) and Marc Andre ter-Stegen (Germany) returned from worldwide duty with injury problems, but they also took part in the session.

With Barcelona holding an 11 point edge on Atletico Madrid in the La Liga table heading into Saturday's match and a very busy two weeks upcoming, the team may play it safe with their talisman.

Initial impressions and their inclusion in training - suggest that none of the above mentioned trio have serious issues, but it remains to be seen if Valverde will risk them when Barca travel to the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.

"Messi finished the last game with Athletic Bilbao well, it is true that he had a little trouble, but it was nothing important". I'm calm about Messi's injury. I still do not know what we are going to do, we think and hope it is not important. "Tomorrow we will see how he feels".

And Messi may be rested for Saturday's trip to Sevilla to give him more time to recover ahead of the Champions League quarter-final first leg against Roma on Tuesday.
