Barcelona forward, Lionel Messi could face a late fitness test in a bid to face Real Madrid in the semi final first leg of the Copa del Rey at Camp Nou Stadium on Wednesday.
Messi hurt his right leg in the 2-2 draw against Valencia in the Spanish league on Saturday and may be doubtful for the encounter.
The Argentinian star has scored at least a goal in nine straight games in all competitions and is the league’s leading scorer with 21 goals in 22 matches.
Barcelona had not yet given full details about Messi’s condition, although reports said the injury wasn’t serious enough to keep him from facing Madrid at Camp Nou Stadium.
Messi missed Barcelona’s 5-1 league rout of Madrid in October because of a broken right arm.
