Lionel Messi was in Barcelona’s training today. The Argentine legend suffered a bit of a knock in the win over Napoli last week leading some to be concerned over the fitness of Messi heading into this week’s match with Bayern.

The injury itself reportedly wasn’t all that serious. Messi attended Barca’s facilities on his day off to get some more recovery in, but other than that the concern was moreso precautionary.

Seeing Messi in full training this morning should give everyone the warm fuzzies. If Messi was held out or restrained for some reason there would be pretty hefty concern about his fitness against Bayern Munich. We might be able to rest easy tonight.
