Lionel Messi's pain decreases and he could feature vs Alaves

Lionel Messi has found the pain in his groin go down in intensity during a physiothrerapy session with Roger Girones on Tuesday morning at the Ciutat Esportiva and can be more optimistic about playing against Alaves on Saturday. However, it will be through the week he will be looked at to ensure he is able to play, including how he performs when he gets back on the grass. 

In principle on Thursday he should take to outdoor training and that's when he will see if the pain is fully gone, and make himself ready to be called up by Luis Enrique. Messi will have the final word, after meeting with the medics and Luis Enrique on Friday.
