Leo Messi trained for a second day in a row with the Barcelona B squad under manager Gerard López, according to Mundo Deportivo. Messi had the day off, but he wanted to train and went to the Sports City to continue his recovery plan and be ready next Saturday to feature at El Bernabeu in the first La Liga Clasico of this season.

During this session Messi showed he can run and shoot without any problem. He wants to be available against Real Madrid and it looks like he is achieving it. Messi played his last minutes for Barcelona in La Liga gameweek 6 against Las Palmas.
