And Zanetti, who played with Messi for Argentina, has his fingers crossed Barca opt to give the superstar more time to recover from the broken arm he sustained against Sevilla two weeks ago.

He has travelled with the squad to Milan without the all-clear from the club's medical team. But wins, in any form, can not be overlooked.

Messi has started the season in spectacular form, registering 12 goals and five assists in 11 appearances for Barcelona in all competitions to fire them to the top of La Liga and to the brink of qualification for the Champions League knockout stage.

More crucially, key players have delivered while others, less prominent, have stepped up. Messi very well may play, but with just two games left before the global break, Barca could be better off giving him a couple more weeks of rest.

Speaking on Monday, Valverde said: "Leo is at the point where he might be available, but we have to wait for the training session". "Of course it's necessary to get Messi back as soon as possible". "We know they will score many goals together again". "Under the new coach I'm not being picked but I'm working on it".

Barca have done well without Messi.

"It's a match that, in the event of a win, would qualify Barca automatically as group winners".

Suarez, who scored a hat trick in last week's drubbing of Real Madrid, completed the comeback three minutes later by arriving at the far post to steer in a cross from Sergi Roberto, striking a fifth goal in two games and a ninth in total to move top of the league's scoring charts.
