Leo Messi is in the final stretch of his recovery. The Argentine superstar finally returned to the main group in Barça's afternoon session. He's been working extremely hard to get back to full fitness and was given the green light to join in.
Ernesto Valverde will be delighted to have Leo back in the fold after losing Ousmane Dembele and Luis Suarez to longer-term injuries last weekend. Messi will now look to prove his match sharpness and be given the all clear to return to action. His aim is to be back for Real Betis on Sunday.
Messi joined in alongside Barça B members Iñaki Peña, Chumi, Carles Pérez and Abel Ruiz.
