According to a report in Mundo Deportivo, Lionel Messi could be in line tonight to return to the Barcelona starting grid.
Barcelona will face Athletic Bilbao in the Supercopa de Espana final in Seville in a game that more important than is usually the case as the club’s self-perception is fragile.
The Argentine did not train with the group on the day of the clash with Real Sociedad last week, a game he missed due to injury but he trained with the group yesterday in La Cartuja and today in Benito Villamarin.
The entire team traveled to the Real Betis stadium for training, with the exception of the injured duo Sergi Roberto and Ansu Fati, who stayed at the hotel.
Messi’s return would be a big boost for Ronald Koeman, who is hoping to win his first title as Barcelona manager tonight and start his era well.
