Barcelona will not risk Messi against Inter, assures Valverde

Four wins out of four, including a stroll past Inter Milan and a hammering of Real Madrid so severe it cost their coach his job, mean Messi reunites with a team enjoying its strongest run of the season, ironically without its star striker. "Barcelona represents the highest level of difficulty that there is".

Lionel Messi is in Barcelona's squad for Tuesday's Champions League match at Inter Milan despite fracturing his arm two weeks ago.

Messi, 31, has not played since breaking a bone in his arm in the win over Sevilla on October 20.

"Leo's at the point where he might be available, but we have to wait until after the training session [on Monday to decide]", Valverde said in a news conference. "We have to see if he's safe to play", Valverde said.

Additionally, the court has directed the CPCB to setup a social media account where citizens would be able to lodge complaints.

"There are three or four possibilities". As a result, the visitors may go unchanged in this one but let's take a look at their likely eleven for the match. Meanwhile, Jordi Alba has arguably been Barcelona's best player in the absence of Messi, and should be the left-back for the vistors, while Sergi Roberto is likely to start on the opposite flank. The idea is not to take any risks, so it's not clear if he will play against Real Betis at the weekend or wait until after the global break.

The Champions League showdown will be shown live on BT Sport ESPN in the United Kingdom and Ireland. "But I don't want to get ahead of ourselves too much".
