FC Barcelona forward Lionel Messi took part in practice on Monday and will be a available for this week’s second leg of the Spanish Supercopa against Atletico Madrid.

Messi left last week’s first leg with an injury and did not play Sunday in Barça’s La Liga match with Malaga.

Barcelona - the reigning La Liga champion - and 2013 Copa del Rey winner Atletico played to a 1-1 draw last Wednesday at Vicente Calderon stadium in Madrid.

Messi was the only starter at Monday’s practice, as the rest of the first team took the customary post-match day off.

The next full practice is set for Tuesday evening at the Nou Camp, where Barça will host Atletico Madrid in the Supercopa second leg.
