Lionel Messi regresó el viernes a los entrenamientos con sus compañeros del Barcelona, como parte de su recuperación de una lesión en el muslo derecho.

El Barça espera que el delantero argentino esté listo para jugar el martes contra Bayern Munich en el partido de ida por las semifinales de la Liga de Campeones.

Messi no jugó en los dos últimos partidos del Barça en el campeonato español tras lastimarse la pierna el 2 de abril. La semana pasada, salió de la banca y ayudó al club blaugrana a remontar contra el Paris Saint-Germain para conseguir el boleto a las semifinales de la Champions.

Messi está en duda para el encuentro del sábado contra Levante por la liga.

“El jugador ha hecho una parte de la sesión con el resto de sus compañeros. Sergio Busquets, que se recupera de unas molestias en el pubis, también se ha ejercitado con el equipo”, informó el club en un comunicado.
