Messi Fit for Barcelona's Champions League Opener

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.

The 32-year-old returned to full training on Monday morning and has been included in Ernesto Valverde's 22-man squad for the trip to Westfalenstadion.

Messi will travel to Germany with his team-mates later on Monday, as Barca prepare to open their latest Champions League campaign.

The Spanish champions have been drawn in Group F, alongside Dortmund, Inter and Slavia Prague.
