Barcelona is hosting Getafe in Copa del Rey action. This looks like a match Barcelona should win easily, but their is another intriguing angle to this match. It is the return of superstar forward Lionel Messi.
“What has changed is that he has a few training sessions done now,” Barcelona boss Gerardo Martino said Tuesday, via ESPN FC. “Before the Elche game he had only two or three, and now he has trained some more days and has done a period of good work. All he needs to do now is take part in a competitive game.
“This was the normal way to do things, and everything should hopefully continue as normal from now on. We will find out tomorrow if Messi starts or not.”
