Barcelona have been boosted by the news that Lionel Messi is fit to face Inter in Wednesday’s Champions League despite picking up a muscle injury during the weekend’s clash with Villarreal.

Messi limped off during Barca’s 2-1 win over Villarreal last week after suffering an adductor injury while Ousmane Dembele has also been declared fit despite nursing a thigh problem.

However, Barcelona will be without full back Jordi Alba, centre back Samuel Umtiti and 16-year-old winger Ansu Fati.

All four teams in Group F have one point, with Barca drawing 0-0 at Borussia Dortmund in their opener while Inter drew 1-1 at Slavia Prague.
