Argentina star Lionel Messi has been included in Barcelona’s squad to face Real Madrid in the first leg Copa del Rey semi-final on Wednesday.

The game will be played at the Camp Nou with manager Ernesto Valverde set to leave out one player from his squad.

This means Messi could still miss out due to a thigh injury he picked up in Barcelona’s 2-2 draw with Valencia on Saturday.

According to Valverde, Messi, 31,  had a “small problem” and would undergo tests to ascertain if he will play the game.

The Argentine did not take part in full training on Monday but returned to join his team-mates on Tuesday for their final session.

Similarly, Ousmane Dembele will miss the tie with an ankle problem.

Dembele joins goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen, who has been ruled out for six weeks with a calf injury, on the bench, alongside Samuel Umtiti and Rafinha.
