Inter Milan will host Spanish giants Barcelona in a UEFA Champions League fixture at the San Siro, Italy.

And Lionel Messi is in the Barcelona’s squad for Tuesday’s CL tie despite been out for two weeks.

Messi had a fractured arm in the Spanish La Liga fixture against Sevilla where he was substituted.

The Argentine is a surprise inclusion though his name is marked with an asterisk saying “the player

travels without the medical all-clear”.

Messi was initially ruled out for around three weeks after suffering the injury during a 4-2 win over

Sevilla.

Therefore, the  Argentine did not take part in the El Clasico match against soccer power house, Real Madrid.

Messi has missed the 5-1 win over Real Madrid and a 2-0 victory over Inter Milan.
