Lionel Messi ‘expected to be fit for La Liga restart’

Lionel Messi is seemingly on course to represent Barcelona against Mallorca when La Liga resumes at the weekend.
After three months without any action due to the coronavirus pandemic, Spain’s top flight is scheduled to get back underway on June 11, with Barca in action two days later.

Last week, it was suggested that Messi was struggling to be fit for the trip to Son Moix after sustaining a minor quadriceps injury.

However, having trained on his own over the weekend, the Argentine took part in a session with the rest of his teammates on Monday.

With five days to go until his side’s upcoming fixture, it would appear that the 32-year-old is in line to begin in attack for the Catalan giants.

Messi currently sits top of the goalscoring charts with 19 strikes, five more than Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema.
