Barcelona has confirmed the Argentine is in line for his first appearance of the 2019-20 campaign after making a full recovery from a calf injury suffered in August.

Lionel Messi has been declared fit ahead of Barcelona’s Champions League clash at Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday night.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner has been out of action since sustaining a calf injury in pre-season, following his return to Camp Nou from the Copa America with Argentina.

He was expected back on August 25 when Barcelona faced Real Betis at Camp Nou, but his scar reopened which extended his time away from the pitch for a couple of extra weeks.
