Real Betis have posted a cheeky message on social media telling Lionel Messi not to rush back from injury ahead of this weekend’s clash at the Camp Nou.

The Barcelona captain was back training with the group on Wednesday, and Betis responded to Barca’s tweet about their captain’s fitness with a message of their own.

Betis may still be having nightmares about the last time they faced Messi in La Liga back in March.

The GOAT bagged a hat-trick in a 4-1 win at the Benito Vilmarin, finishing off the scoring with a glorious chip from the edge of the box that even had the home fans applauding.
