Messi Returns To Barcelona Training After Argentina Trashing

Messi participates in Barca training

Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde has played down Lionel Messi's injury concerns after the 30-year-old missed both of Argentina's friendlies against Italy and Spain.

In other news, goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen, who was also considered a doubt for the trip to Sevilla after picking up a knee injury during the global break with Germany which resulted in his absence during his side's 1-0 loss to Brazil on Tuesday, returned to training to boost his chances of featuring on Saturday.

"We do not know too much about the physical condition of Messi and Ter Stegen", Valverde said on Wednesday.

Barca have an 11-point lead over second-placed Atletico Madrid at the top of La Liga, where they are unbeaten all season.

Messi was left out of the game due to a hamstring strain. Pictured, Messi attends a training session in Madrid ahead of an worldwide friendly football match between Spain and Argentina, March 25, 2018. "This Thursday they will undergo medical tests to assess their status".

"I am calm. We will not get too anxious ahead of time about this, tomorrow the medics will look at him and we will see what steps to take". 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". "We are waiting for the players to come back from global duty". In addition, Andre Gomes and Jasper Cillessen featured in a training session on Wednesday after returning from global duty with Portugal and Netherlands respectively.

Barcelona faces Roma in the Champions League four days after the Sevilla clash and there must be a temptation not to risk him so he's fit enough to face Eusebio Di Francesco's side.
