The Argentina international has resumed training following his recent injury.
The superstar sustained a broken arm in his team’s 4-2 win over Sevilla earlier this month. An injury that ruled him out of Barcelona recent 5-1 El Clasico win.
In the absence of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez was the star of the show scoring a hat trick. Philippe Coutinho and Arturo Vidal were also on target for the Catalan club, with Marcelo scoring the only goal for Madrid.
Lionel Messi is unlikely to feature in Barcelona’s Copa del Rey clash with Cultural Leonesa. But could make his return against Rayo Vallecano this weekend, before facing Inter in the Champions League.
Messi has made a good start to the season with 12 goals in 12 games in all competitions, providing 6 assists in the process.
