Valverde: Barcelona aren't going to take any chances with Messi

06 November 2018

We will see how he will behave tomorrow in training.

Messi, 31, was included in the squad to travel to Italy this week and reports in Spain suggested the Argentina maestro was keen to feature in order to boost his Ballon d'Or aspirations before next month's award ceremony. In terms of his play and his movements, he's fine, but we have to wait.

Suarez scored a hat-trick in last weekend's 5-1 thumping of bitter rivals Real Madrid and the Uruguayan concedes that Barca may have have underestimated their struggling opponents, who remain 19th.

"I can't anticipate anything but what is clear is that we aren't going to take any chances with Messi". Of course it's necessary to get Messi back as soon as possible.

The Catalans dispatched the Nerazzurri by a 2-0 score a fortnight ago and such a result would be enough for them to seal qualification into the knockout rounds with two matches to play.

"With Messi, Barca's degree of unpredictability increases but their attitude is the same without him", he said. We'll see what happens because it doesn't only depend on us, but also on how they play.

And they will qualify as Group B winners with victory on Tuesday.

"But I do not want to take too many risks". "But we must credit Rayo Vallecano, they need points and were excellent, they brought the game to us and were very impressive. We would like to win, of course, because [we've not qualified] yet".

"We're doing worse in that sense this season".
