After tearing an internal collateral lgament in his left knee last September 26, Barcelona star striker Lionel Messi is back to training ahead of their anticipated matchup against Real Madrid on November 21.
Barca’s official website reported that Messi, along with Ivan Rakitic and Marc Andre ter Stegen were present during the November 16 training session.
In their previous meeting last March, Barcelona edged out Real Madrid, 2-1 at Camp Nou, with Jeremy Mathieu and Luis Suarez converting for Barcelona, while Cristiano Ronaldo pulled one back for Madrid.
Madrid will have home-turf advantage this time around, as the match will take place at the Santiago Bernabeau in Madrid.
