As the video shows, Messi has scored goals against AC Milan, Roma, Juventus but he has not scored against Inter Milan in three different occasions and given his injury and well-being, it is highly unlikely that Messi would make a fourth appearance against Inter and ultimately break the deadlock.
"He has nearly scored the same number of goals as Cristiano Ronaldo despite missing three league matches", she said in an interview with the "Tiki Taka" programme. "When he recovers, we will be even better". One is that he plays from the start, or he comes on, or he goes off.
More crucially, key players have delivered while others, less prominent, have stepped up. Barcelona won their third straight game, beating Rayo Vallecano 3-2 behind a Luis Suarez brace. "The message from this match is that we want to qualify from the group, we wanted to take points from this match knowing that now we have two hard matches". "Of course it's necessary to get Messi back as soon as possible".
However, in football, you never know.
"I'm going to do everything I can to get selected, as I've always done ever since I made my debut with the national team", Alba said.
Alec Baldwin arrested after NY parking spot spat
TMZ claims to have a little backstory on the dispute, reporting that Baldwin had a friend holding the street spot for him. Actor and comedian Alec Baldwin was arrested Friday for allegedly punching someone in the face, according to police.
Barcelona sparked confusion by omitting Messi from the original squad list for the game published on social media, only to amend it minutes later with their captain included.
Meanwhile, Atletico Madrid gained revenge for a 4-0 defeat away to Borussia Dortmund last month as Diego Simeone's side defeated the Germans 2-0 in Spain, Saul Niguez and Antoine Griezmann scoring the goals.
Barca were without a win in four league games and defensive errors looked set to play havoc with their title challenge. Alaves can move within one point if they beat Eibar on Sunday.
Barca still qualified for the last 16 of the competition for a 15th consecutive year, while Inter need only draw their next fixture with Tottenham Hotspur to join the Catalans in the knockout stages.
