Lionel Messi will return to the squad of FC Barcelona footballers on Wednesday after the end of the two-match penalty.He will be available in the eight-final duel of the Spanish Cup on the field of the second league Raya Vallecana.
Messi complained about the exclusion in the loss in the final of the home Super Cup.In it, the Argentine received a red card for a blow with an open palm to the back of the head of Asier Villalibra from Athletica Bilbao.
