BARCELONA – Barcelona captain Lionel Messi could make his comeback from injury against Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday in the Champions League.
The Argentina striker has not played since sustaining a calf injury in pre-season, but Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde named him in the group which arrived in Germany on Monday.
Messi trained on Sunday and Monday after missing the first three La Liga matches of the season.
"We will decide (if Messi plays) tomorrow," Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde told a news conference Monday.
"It's true that a few days ago we weren't sure about the situation but he completed the recent training sessions well, getting past the pain that he had, he's recovered well."
