BARCELONA, Spain – Lionel Messi was back in full training again on Wednesday, and may be fit to face Real Betis in the Spanish La Liga on Sunday.
Messi had been training separately from the squad since injuring his right calf in the pre-season.
He missed the team’s 1-0 loss to Athletic Bilbao in the league opener on Friday.
Barcelona have not said for how long they expect Messi to be sidelined.
Coach Ernesto Valverde is also dealing with injuries to forwards Luiz Suarez and Ousmane Dembele.
