Messi returns to training ground against UCL inter clash

Barcelona were given a boost on Monday as both Lionel Messi and Ousmane Dembele joined in first-team training ahead of Wednesday’s clash with Inter Milan.

Both players missed the trip to Getafe on Saturday due to injury and are considered doubts for the Champions League tie at the Camp Nou.

Messi has been sidelined with a thigh strain picked up against Villarreal, but reports have claimed there is optimism he could be fit to take on Antonio Conte’s side.

Meanwhile, Dembele was ruled out of the game against Getafe before kick-off and later diagnosed with a hamstring strain. Ernesto Valverde said after the win he did not think it was a serious problem but was not sure if he’d be able to face Inter.
