Superstar part of Barcelona's squad ahead of El Clasico against Real Madrid

Superstar part of Barcelona's squad ahead of El Clasico against Real Madrid

Lionel Messi has been involved in 47.4% of Barcelona's total goals this season.

Messi is a doubt for the first leg at the Camp Nou on Wednesday after feeling discomfort in his thigh during Sunday's draw with Valencia.

In the press conference, Solari was also asked if he felt it was deliberate. "If he is fit, he will play and if he is not, he will not play".

Barca face a testing period of fixtures, including three Clasicos in the next month. Fatigue will obviously be a cause of major concern as the season progresses as Valverde would want a player like Messi to be at the top of his game as the business end of the season approaches.

He's bagged a ridiculous 21 league goals from only 20 games, as well as six goals in the Champions League.

But the Argentine star, who was tipped to sit out tomorrow's game at the Nou Camp is now likely to play a role in the contest.

And the suspense about Messi's right leg injury entered a third day on Tuesday, with Barca still quiet about the full extent of the problem and not saying whether he will be available.

"In football, it's always best that the best players play in every game, that's just how it is", Solari said.

Barca's French forward Ousmane Dembele is unlikely to be fit for the game, as he is still recovering from a hamstring injury.

Lionel Messi is ready to stage a comeback from a knock and tackle Real Madrid on Wednesday night after completing Barcelona's training session on Tuesday.

"It is nearly impossible to stop the competitor Messi if he wants to play". We'll make a decision based on that.

Valverde admitted he might have to rotate his line-up given the number of important games coming up.

Now it remains to be seen if he's in the starting lineup on Wednesday against Real Madrid.

"I don't think there is a favorite in a semifinal between Barcelona and Real Madrid". "In October they were going through a delicate period but now they are better".

"Cristiano is the best player in the world because Messi is playing another sport", he said.
