Messi set for Barça return

Barcelona could welcome back Lionel Messi as they look to keep their Copa del Rey hopes alive against Athletic Bilbao on Wednesday, according to fifa.com. Messi missed Sunday`s 2-1 league win over Levante after being given extra time off by Pep Guardiola, but he returned to training yesterday and could be a timely reinforcement for the trip to San Mames, where Barça will be hoping to book their place in the quarter-finals. Barça face a tough test having been held to a goalless draw at home in the first leg, but they can take some cheer from Athletic`s 2-1 home defeat to Deportivo La Coruna at the weekend – a result which brought to an end the Basque club`s six-match winning streak at home.
