Messi trains in the gym while the team have the day off

The Argentinean striker continued with the recovery plan put in motion after receiving a knock to his left knee against Benfica on Wednesday. He has still not been ruled out from this weekend's game against Betis.


Leo Messi hit the gym today at the Barcelona training centre looking to maximise his chances of playing this Sunday against Betis. The Argentinean is keen to play despite injuring his left knee when he clashed with Artur, Benfica's goalkeeper, last Wednesday in the last Champions League group match. The player, the medical staff at the club and the coaching team will take the decision tomorrow as to whether he is fit enough to play in Seville.

Although the Barcelona squad had the day off Iniesta, Dani Alves, Alexis and Bartra were also at the training ground today. Titio Vilanova, the Barcelona coach, will announce the squad to travel to the Andalusian capital tomorrow.
