Optimism grows in the FC Barcelona with Lionel Messi. Three days before the final of the Spanish Super Cup in La Cartuja, the presence of the captain culé is in “we will see”, but at least it’s not completely ruled out. The Argentine left positive feelings in training this Thursday at the Ciutat Esportiva and from the club they keep the hopes that it is available for the dispute of the first title of the season, although the final decision could be made hours before the start of the confrontation.
FC Barcelona already showed that it is one when Leo messi is in the field and another when ‘La Pulga’ lives the game from the stands. It happened against Eibar, at the end of 2020, and was repeated in the semifinals of the Super Cup, against Real Sociedad, in which Barça got the ticket to the final thanks to Marc-André ter Stegen. For the game this Sunday, the Catalans hope to be able to count on their captain to lead the Blaugrana offensive and do not resist – so much – the goals.
The newspaper ‘Sport’ He relates that the sensations that Lionel Messi has left in today’s training were better than those experienced in Córdoba. However, that does not ensure your participation in the match in La Cartuja. The next days will be key for the Barça club’s medical services to determine whether or not it is advisable for ‘La Pulga’ to take to the field, considering that his discomfort is in the back of the left thigh and, if forced, could have consequences for the future.
Before, from the newspaper ‘AS’ it had communicated that the one from Rosario held a half-hour meeting at the Ciutat Esportiva to find out your chances of recovering from a “minor” injury to the biceps femoris in your left leg. The Madrilenian media pointed out that dfrom the club they hope to evaluate their situation very carefully to make the final decision, but Messi would enter the initial call of the team.
Important days, for Messi and Barça
FC Barcelona will continue with its regular training sessions for the match in the final of the Spanish Super Cup, hoping to have Leo Messi in each of them. The culés will exercise on Friday at 11:00 at the Joan Gamper and on Saturday they will do it at La Cartuja, the scene of the grand final, at 6:00 p.m. On Sunday they will have an activation session and possibly there is when the presence (or not) of Messi is determined for the game.
In this sense, the culés will have to wait until the last hour to know if the Argentine will jump into the field. For the moment, your presence is absolutely necessary, especially since the team does not finish taking off when it is in the stands. Messi continues to be an irreplaceable player and the offensive engine of the culés.
