Messi to be fit for Bayern clash

Lionel Messi is likely to be fit for the first leg of Barcelona's Champions League semi-final clash with Bayern Munich.

The Argentine goalscorer pulled his hamstring during the Blaugrana's 2-2 draw with Paris Saint-Germain earlier this month, but was fit enough to play a cameo role in the second leg last week.

However, the 25-year-old was left out of the squad for the game against Real Zaragoza last weekend as a precaution.

Mundo Deportivo has insisted today though, that an ultrasound has found no new damage, and Messi should be fit to face the Bundesliga champions next Tuesday in Munich.
