Messi back training


The 26-year-old has missed his side's last two games as a result of the muscle strain he sustained against Almeria last month.

Even though Messi trained on Monday there is no guarantee that he will feature in Saturday's trip to Osasuna.

Barcelona’s next fixtures after Saturday is against AC Milan in Europe and the first Clasico of 2013-14.

More good news for the club is that Carles Puyol also trained as he continues his rehabilitation from a knee injury that has sidelined him since March.
