LIONEL MESSI could make his return from injury when Barcelona face Real Betis this weekend. And Betis boss Quique Setien sbobet online 24 has admitted he likes to see Messi on the pitch - but hopes Barca don’t risk their talisman against his team. The Argentine fractured his arm against Sevilla nearly three weeks ago and has since missed all of the Catalan club’s last five matches since then, including a 5-1 defeat of Real Madrid. But Messi has returned to training and travelled with his team-mates to sbobet online 24 Italy in mid-week for their Champions League clash with Inter Milan. Messi missed out on the squad as a 1-1 draw sealed Barca’s progress to the knockout stages with Ernesto Valverde insisting that he did not want to take a risk with his captain. The manager explained post-match: “Training isn’t the same as playing. We talked about it and he understood.” But the sbobet online 2431-year-old himself was keen to play at the San Siro and could be in line to feature against Betis, depending on the recommendation of the club’s medical staff - who decided he should not feature against Inter. Yet a two-week international break after the clash with Betis means Messi could potentially be spared again and allowed another fortnight to fully recuperate. And opposition manager Setien is hoping that Barca will do just that, though he did admit that he would welcome Messi’s appearance because he is “a joy to watch”.
