Would Messi be fit to play in the El Classico?
Barcelona Talisman, Lionel Messi would be assessed by Barcelona’s medical staff today after taking a knock in the 2-2 draw against Valencia.
The Argentine scored from the spot five minutes after Parejo doubled Valencia’s advantage and then leveled the proceedings in the 64th minute to earn his side a point at Camp Nou.
Though Messi played the entirety of the game but there remains obvious concern for the Barca captain with a Copa del Rey Clasico against Real Madrid just four days away.
“[Messi] has a small problem,” Valverde said after the match. “I don’t know exactly what he has.
“We will have to wait to see what medical staff say. If he’s in good shape, he’ll play on Wednesday [against Madrid].
