Barcelona make Lionel Messi decision about potential Inter Milan return

Barcelona make Lionel Messi decision about potential Inter Milan return

The Barcelona captain returned to training on Wednesday just 11 days after fracturing his arm against Sevilla following a nasty fall in a 4-2 La Liga win at the Camp Nou.

Barcelona will be hoping to seal top spot in Group B of the UEFA Champions League when they face off against Inter Milan at San Siro on Tuesday night. Real's against Real Valladolid on Saturday was their first in six league games.

Luis Suarez scored twice on Saturday, the second an 89th-minute victor to complete a late comeback against Rayo.

On the left flank, Philippe Coutinho is likely to be given the nod ahead of the underperforming Ousmane Dembele.

"We need to control the game to try to reach the goal". Of course it's necessary to get Messi back as soon as possible.

Oil Up as US Imposes Sanctions on Iran
Tehran vowed to defy the economic war while Iranian clerical rulers have dismissed concerns about the impact on the economy. Americans cast votes on Tuesday to decide whether Donald Trump's Republicans maintain their grip on the US Congress, or if.

Upfront, Luis Suarez is another player who has stepped up in Messi's absence, and should be focal point of the Barcelona attack. More than anything because he is one more [player] and so we have more to choose from.

"We've always said we can play against anyone, and that still holds true".

Instead, the more diligent Rafinha was named in the starting line-up at home to Inter last month and the Brazilian justified Ernesto Valverde's faith by scoring the opener against the same club he played for on loan only five months ago.

"It's the right time to show what we're worth", said Spalletti, whose side are coming off a seven-match winning streak in Serie A in which they are in second place, three points behind champions Juventus.
