Lionel Messi has fully recovered from his leg injury, according to Barcelona manager Luis Enrique.
Goal.com notes that Enrique, ahead of the midweek clash against Roma in the Champions League, said he is fully fit and ready to play a huge role. Messi returned to action on Saturday in El Clasico, which Barcelona dominated 4-0.
"He is back fit and this is a joy for us. to see the greatest player back again and now we get to enjoy him," Enrique said.
Messi played just over a half an hour at the weekend and didn't look hurt or slow, joining the attack quickly and nearly scoring a goal.
"Messi is full recovered, he is already in the right frame of mind and his injury is forgotten. He has to recover his muscle tone and his form, but you have to play to recover that," Enrique said.
Barca has a five-point lead over second-place Roma in the Champions League's Group E. A draw on Tuesday against the Italians will see the Spanish club win the group.
Messi may start the match on the bench, as he did against Real Madrid, to take things slow in the attempt to regain form.
