Leo Messi is fit to play against Real Betis tonight, says Barcelona coach Tito Vilanova.
Messi suffered a blow to his knee against Benfica in midweek, but has made a rapid recovery, says his coach.
“If there was even the slightest risk, Messi would not travel,” Vilanova said in his pre match press conference. “But there is zero risk.
“If you travel with the team it means you are ready to play. That is the case, but we’ll have to wait until tomorrow to see if he can play 90 minutes or not.”
