Champions League: Inter Milan vs Barcelona, results, highlights, goals, video, start time, team news


BARCELONA coach Ernesto Valverde said Monday that Lionel Messi could play in Tuesday’s Champions League clash at Inter Milan, but he would take “no risks” with the superstar attacker as he recovers from a broken arm.

“He could play, but we have to wait until after training and see how he feels. He’s showing positive things in training, but we need a certain security threshold for him to be able to play,” Valverde said.

“He could play at the start, come off the bench, not play at all … everything is possible. What is sure is that we won’t take any risks.”

Messi broke his arm during Barca’s win over Sevilla on October 20, with the club estimating at the time he would be out for three weeks.

However the 31-year-old Argentine has travelled with the squad to the San Siro, and could yet be declared fully fit.
