Lionel Messi In Line To Beat Cristiano Ronaldo To Uefa Champions

Lionel Messi has been declared fit for Barcelona's opening UEFA Champions League game at Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday, the Catalan club have announced.

Barcelona's 22-man squad will depart for Germany later on Monday afternoon.

Barca did not put a timeframe on Messi's injury but his time on the sidelines was beginning to provoke some concern.

Considering Barcelona are likely to still be missing talisman Leo Messi - the Argentine has yet to play this season due to a calf injury - and their away-day struggles, Dortmund can take at least a point, with Marathonbet going 4-5 for the hosts not to lose.

And if Osasuna are capable of scoring two against Valverde's team - a feat they achieved in a 2-2 draw before the global break - Dortmund are more than capable of doing likewise, with over 1.5 home goals a tempting 27-20 at Marathonbet.

"I've not spoken with him, save for tactical matters", he said.

"I expect a rival of the highest level, a challenger for everything in their country and in Europe, and a good yardstick for us", he said.

Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi dismissed the US allegation that it was responsible as "pointless". Regional tensions have escalated since Washington quit an worldwide nuclear deal and extended sanctions on Iran.

Kim Kardashian Reveals Psoriatic Arthritis Diagnosis
Kim has been having joint pains quite often, and the reason behind this is psoriatic arthritis, stemmed from her psoriasis. Kim's older sis, Kourtney Kardashian , also has a playful approach to allowing daughter Penelope , 6, play with makeup.

"We will decide tomorrow".

Fati played an hour on Saturday and will be unfortunate to lose his place in the side, although Valverde could opt for the slightly more experienced Carles Perez - who also started at the weekend. You can not say we have competition for the goalkeeper position and then expect the players to be happy with the situation if they don't play. Though he was initially expected back for the game against Real Betis on August 25, a setback in training forced him to take a step back in his recovery.

Goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen said that everyone is anxious for Messi's return.

As for his own team, he has a couple of fitness doubts.

Ousmane Dembele is also closing in on a return to action.

Valverde has been pleased with Messi's training performances but will not make a decision on whether his captain will start the match until closer to kick-off.
