Lionel Messi returned to training on Wednesday, after missing Barcelona’s wins over Inter Milan and Real Madrid in the last week.
Messi did some fitness training at the club’s training ground.
The 31-year-old was also able to do some ball work for the first time, since breaking a bone in his arm on October 20.
Barcelona face Cultural Leonesa in the Copa del Rey on Wednesday, before travelling to Rayo Vallecano in La Liga on Saturday.
Messi will not be available for either game, but his return to training has led to hopes he could return for next Tuesday’s game at Inter.
