Lionel Messi has surprisingly been included in Barcelona’s squad to face Inter Milan on Tuesday in the Champions League. The Argentinian superstar fractured his arm only 11 days ago after an awkward fall in the 4-2 victory over Sevilla at the Nou Camp.

Messi has not entirely been missed in that time with Barca winning all four games in his absence, including the 5-1 El Clasico win over Real Madrid at the Nou Camp last weekend.
However, it goes without saying that Messi’s return will be welcomed, though he is said to not have the “medical all clear” to play, meaning he could be a doubt for the game.
Barca have won all three of their opening games in the Champions League so far this season, and a win over the Italian side would guarantee their spot in the round of 16 stage with two group games to spare against Tottenham Hotspur and PSV Eindhoven.
They are four points clear at the top of La Liga after their 3-2 win over Rayo Vallecano on Saturday in which Luis Suarez netted a 90th-minute winner.
