Messi named in Barca CL squad

Lionel Messi has been included in Barcelona's squad for the Champions League semi-final against Bayern Munich.

The Argentine forward has been nursing a hamstring injury, and despite taking a full part in Saturday and Sunday's training sessions, has yet to be declared fit by the club doctors.

Tito Vilanova however, has named him in the squad for the trip to Germany.

Javier Mascherano and Carles Puyol miss out though, through injury – whilst Adriano is suspended for the match.

Barcelona squad to face Bayern Munich: Valdes, Pinto, Dani Alves, Pique, Fabregas, Xavi, Villa, Iniesta, Alexis, Messi, Thiago, Dos Santos, Bartra, Sergio, Pedro, Jordi Alba, Montoya, Abidal, Song, Tello and Oier.
