Barcelona receive major injury boost ahead of Borussia Dortmund showdown

Barcelona have been handed a major injury boost ahead of their UEFA Champions League crunch match against Borussia Dortmund, following starman Lionel Messi's return from an injury.

The forward has not featured for the club this season after suffering a calf injury just before the team flew to the USA to face Napoli in a preseason friendly. 

He has since missed four La Liga matches, but might be in line for a return to the starting team, having returned to full training on Sunday. 

The Argentine was supposed to have returned and probably featured in last weekend's 5-2 win over Valencia, but suffered some complications in his recovery. 

The club took to their social media to welcome their key man back, as they plan to travel to German for the Tuesday night clash. 

 

 

He is expected to jet out with the rest of the team on Monday, ahead of the eagerly-anticipated match. 

Barca are in Group F alongside the Germans, Inter Milan and Slavia Praha.
