Lionel Messi raised the alarm in Barca’s 2-2 draw with Valencia when he needed treatment on a thigh problem. That could keep him out of Wednesday’s Clasico, it remains to be seen how severe the problem is.

The sensations are positive but you have to be cautious. The player has told the club’s medical services that the pain was lowering. The definitive report will come after Messi takes tests on Monday.

The tests will show if he should rest or not and above all, the origin of the discomfort. There’s nothing to rule out that he might train with the group tomorrow, although he won’t be at 100 per cent.

Between Tuesday and Wednesday morning the player will decide with the club if he is going to play in the cup Clasico, as they look to avoid the situation exacerbating.
