Messi will be game-time decision


Lionel Messi

Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola says Lionel Messi’s fitness for Tuesday’s Champions League match against Inter Milan will be a game-time decision.


Messi, who limped out of Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Athletic Bilbao with a leg muscle injury, was the focus Monday as Guardiola fielded several questions about the 22-year-old midfielder’s health.

Guardiola says the European champions will try to get Messi into the lineup but that the team’s doctors would decide whether he is fit to play. Guardiola added that striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic is not certain to return from a hamstring injury and would also be a game-time decision.

Barcelona are third in Group F and could be eliminated from the competition with a defeat.
