Lionel Messi is targeting a comeback from his thigh injury to feature in Barcelona’s Champions League game against Inter Milan on Wednesday.
The 31-year-old forward had picked up a thigh injury during his team’s unconvincing win over fellow La Liga side Villarreal last Tuesday.
He was subsequently ruled out from Barca’s weekend win against Getafe and there were also major doubts about whether the Argentine would feature against Inter during the mid-week.
However, as per Spanish news outlet SPORT, Messi has responded to the treatment on his injury better than expected and now stands a chance to play some part against Inter on Wednesday.
The Argentine’s return would give Barcelona a huge boost after they struggled to break down a stubborn Borussia Dortmund defense in their Champions League opener a fortnight ago.
