After a month of recovery by fault of the injury that suffered during the first train of the season 2019-20, after the Trophy Joan Gamper, Leo Messi could debut finally with the Barça in the field of the Borussia Dortmund, where had of half hour of game to try drill the goal of Bürki. It did not achieve it, but at least it played half hour that will come him very well to start with to take the rhythm of competition.

After the visit to the Signal Iduna Park, the meeting of this next Saturday against the Granada could be a turning point for 'The Flea'. The Argentinian has a lot of options to be headline in The Cármenes, and could begin to 'heat' as long as it do not force more than the account. If Messi luce a good game, marks some goal or gives some assistance before being substituted, will win a plus of confidence of face to the following parties.

Leo Messi will not play all the party against the Granada, neither much less, and the forecast is that it have of a maximum of 60 minutes of game to follow filming as it is had to, of progressive form. 'The Flea' knows perfectly that the injuries in the sóleo are delicate and also traicioneras, since with only force slightly more than the had to one can recaer.

The '10', that these last seasons has known dosificarse to perfection to arrive enchufado to the final stretch, will not do unnecessary efforts against the Granada and will take advantage of the appointment to recover little by little his best version. In Dortmund played only 30 minutes and was not at all hit, following the same tonic that his mates: it lost six balloons (all in rival field) and so only won 14% of disputes in attack. In the last played of the party, Luis Suárez left him the ball of face to goal but the rosarino was not the sufficiently fast to the hour to arm the leg.

They are small details that show that Messi still is not to tope, as it is logical, although anybody doubts that it will be it with the step of the weeks. The Granada can be a good 'sparring' and, besides, can serve so much to the Argentinian as to the rest of his mates to break the bad series that carries the team far of the Camp Nou and, like this, take confidence and carrerilla of face to appointments more important.

Three days of League in a week for the Barça

And it is that, in addition to the party of this Saturday, next week the FC Barcelona will play two days more than LaLiga Santander: one of them intersemanal, in front of the Villarreal in the Camp Nou, and the another against the Getafe in the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez. This could serve to the ones of Valverde to recover positions in the fight by the leadership of LaLiga Santander, when having to shot in the classification so much to the Athletic of Madrid (9 points) as to the Seville (10 points), by the 7 points of the culés. With Messi increasingly enchufado, everything will be easier.

If it begins to understand and purchase chemistry of game with Antoine Griezmann, besides, the recovery of Messi can be the key to reactivate all the offensive plot. The rival teams will have to be more concentrated in defence and, therefore, will centre less in attacking a Barcelona defence that already has showed in what it goes of course not being of the all greased.
