Lionel Messi is back in training with Barcelona after his injury setback that denied him a chance to feature in the Champions League clash against Inter Milan as well as last weekend’s El Clasico at Camp Nou.
Barcelona made the announcement of Messi’s comeback via a tweet on their official twitter handle on Wednesday.

Lionel Messi suffered a fractured arm after an awkward fall in Barcelona’s 4-2 win over Sevilla on the penultimate Saturday.
The Argentina superstar scored Barca’s second with a gorgeous 20-yard finish after a swift breakaway in the 12th minute, having already laid on the first for Philippe Coutinho, but he fell awkwardly soon after in a coming together with Sevilla’s Franco Vazquez.
He was given medical attention for several minutes on the touchline, with Barca’s trainers putting a significant amount of strapping around his right elbow.
But he was unable to continue and the La Liga champions confirmed shortly after full-time that he had suffered a broken arm, ruling him out for three weeks.
Without Messi, Ernesto Valverde’s men return to European action last Wednesday having won their first two Group B outings and they made it three in a roll with another win over Inter.
Undoubtedly the biggest game Messi missed was El Clasico on Sunday but ‘No Messi, No problem’ as Barcelona still ran riot without their talisman as they emerged as 5-1 victors over Real Madrid.
